Happy Holidays From Bald Head Island

The year has flown by! The holiday season is upon you. Are you ready? Whether you are traveling to Bald Head Island for the holidays or lucky enough to call this place home this list is for you. Bald Head Island gives you 4 ways to get through the holidays not only stress-free but enjoying every minute of it!

#1 Take a deep breath

Life throws so many unexpected things our way; delayed travel, unexpected guests or a dishwasher that breaks down the day you’re hosting Thanksgiving dinner for the entire family. Step outside your ocean front cottage and breathe in the salt air of Bald Head Island. The sounds of the ocean have a calming affect leaving you ready to take on anything that comes your way. 

#2 Make a to do list

Organization is one key to managing stress. You will be less likely to forget something important if it’s in black and white.  Putting your plans on paper will help you determine how much time is needed to accomplish what is on the list and how realistic it is with your schedule…which brings us to number 3! 

#3 Learn to delegate

If you have on your list baking a turkey, sweet potato casserole, pumpkin pie and pecan pie in the same oven while mashing potatoes you need to throw that list away! Start delegating some of the assignments to your guests. They will feel more a part of the celebration if they are included in the plans and you won’t feel exhausted when your company arrives. 

#4 Prioritize

Prioritizing is a must. Decide what is most important to you and make that take precedent. Don’t forget to schedule some personal time as well as quality family time. After all, you don’t want to miss out on what the holidays are truly about.
