Christmas… what?! That’s probably the furthest thing from your mind right now. It’s summer, the time of year to spend with family void of holiday related stress, but hear me out! When living with fibromyalgia, we all know stress equals pain. The more stress we’re undergoing the more likely we are to experience symptoms and with the stress of holidays this is a much more likely scenario. So, how can you reduce some of that stress in order to create more enjoyable memories? Celebrate Christmas in July… kinda of.

Why Celebrating Christmas in July is a Must
#1 Planning Ahead
Reason number one, planning ahead. The perks of planning ahead are endless! Planning ahead is always a good idea no matter the situation. It makes you prepared, keeps things organized, and cuts down on last minute craziness and unwanted stress. Not only can you start shopping for gifts, you can even start wrapping them! If nothing else, start setting aside money for your holiday fund so you don’t have to worry about it come crunch time.
#2 Family Photos Done Early
Another thing you can check off your Christmas list early, family photos for your holiday cards. Get the family together for some photos during the off season to avoid photographer booking restrictions, dangerous winter storms, and any weather related symptoms that may come during the cold season.
You can get really creative with your family photos in the summer. Take a nice photo on the beach or round everyone up for a picnic in the park and take advantage of the natural scenery. Your holiday cards don’t have to be all red everything. Switch it up and send a warm greeting this time around.
