Rather than collaborating with anxiety girl and the masked procrastinator... When I've made my plan for a pain-free holiday season I can also state clearly what I can do, and what I need other people to do.
Transportation? I can pack my bag and drive the car, but I can't lift or carry anything, I'll ask Samuel or my brother to do that. Christmas dinner? I can buy some of the ingredients, set the table and read for the kids while the others work in the kitchen.
Being clear about what I can do and what I need others to do prevents a build up of pain-increasing stress.
