Coping with relatives and in-laws at Christmas
'Oh, don't worry about us...'
Where to spend Christmas day, and worrying about offending family members, are among the top festive stress triggers, according to a Post Office survey. As it's virtually impossible to please everyone, make things easier on yourself by accepting that you'll just do your best.
The earlier you plan family visits, the better; that way, you'll avoid frantically trying to fit everyone in. Hosting informal drinks a week or so before the big day is a low-stress way to show you care.
