As we enter the last week before Christmas, it's important to take stock of where you are, both in terms of how much you have left to do and in terms of how you're feeling.
If you haven't yet, make a list of everything you feel like you "have" to do in the next week, and then, with how you're feeling, look at whether you can realistically get it all done.
No? OK, then it's time to prioritize - what absolutely, positively must happen? What can go by the wayside without the whole season imploding? What tasks can you delegate or ask for help with?
For help with this process, read The Holiday Survival Guide. It's written as a months-long process of avoiding a last-minute crunch, but it'll help you out in a pinch, too.
Here are some other resources that can help you:
- Holiday Depression - You're Not Alone!

- Food Sensitivities & the Holidays
- Alcohol Intolerance & the Holidays
- Christmas-Day Gameplan
