Hey everyone! It’s already deep into December, my favorite month of the year! The holidays are an amazing time of giving and joy, but sometimes it can be stressful to handle blogging during the holidays as we are doing school, planning for Christmas (or whatever holiday you celebrate), prepping for the new year, and so much more. Today, I will be sharing my personal tips for handling blogging during this time! I hope you find this helpful! I seriously cannot believe it is almost Christmas! You can also use these tips for anytime life gets busy! Hope you enjoy!

The first tip is prioritizing. Obviously your health, physical or mental, should come before your blog. Choose things that you want to focus on this holiday season and leave out things that can wait. Blogging will feel much less stressful if you pick and choose what you want to focus on in the holidays.
Schedule Your Posts
This can be really helpful to me! If there is a day where I am not doing much and have time to blog, I will be able to produce more content. However, do not post them all at the same time! Schedule them a few days apart so you can get ahead of schedule and are staying consistent!
Set Time to Blog
Setting time to blog will be really helpful. I am sometimes the type of person to just blog whenever I want, but when I do set times to blog, it helps so much since I know I will be able to get everything done by then and it will help keep you on a schedule!
Let me say it: It is 100% okay to take breaks! You should not feel guilty stepping away from your blog. I am planning to do so for Christmas and the following week, it will help give time for your life! And honestly, I do not really care when even my favorite bloggers take breaks as I know they are doing what is best for them! As I said before, your health should come first and don’t feel guilty about caring for yourself.
Plan Out Your Posts
Planning out your posts by the week/month is a HUGE lifesaver! Instead of having to think up of an idea every time you want to post, you will have them right there for you! I do it by the month but it really depends how often you post!
I hope you enjoyed my top tips for blogging during the holidays/busy times. What are your favorite tips for stressful times? Let me know!
And for a special announcement…
Unless my plans change, I am planning a special series for 2021! It will be throughout January and possibly February! It will be all about getting into a healthy lifestyle! I will have things like fitness, eating, and just keeping a healthy, happy life! These posts will be once a week! I am thinking about names… Maybe “Live Your Best Life” or “Better You”? It is still in the works haha, but I hope you all are excited for it! I sure am!
Anyways, thank you all so much for reading! I hope you have a happy holidays, whatever you celebrate! And I hope you found these tips to be helpful for the holiday season and just life in general!
Thanks for reading!
