The holidays are here! It's time to start making your list and check them twice! I know you've all be nice. As the next two weeks of festive fun are around, remember these simple things and you're holidays will seem much less stressful:

The Thought That Counts
Worried about what to give that hard to buy for person? Don't. Remember, it's the thought of the gift that matters the most. So if you can't decide between a tie or a sweater, remember you care enough about that person to add them to your list. They will appreciate it.

Pack Up and Travel Smarter
The holiday season is when most of us pack up and travel to see our friends and family. This year, take a look back at our How To Travel Greener post on how you can stress less and live greener this holiday season.

Become Part of Something Bigger
Check out the guest post from Jennifer Wheary, a Newsday contributor, who has written a post about how you can become something bigger this holiday season and help reduce your holiday stress.

Take Care of Yourself
With parties, traffic and the daily mishaps it's easy to start to feel overwhelmed during the holiday seasons.  Make sure you take care of yourself by eating right (only one piece of pie!), continue to drink water and rest when you start to feel too tired.
