5 Tips for a Stress Free Holiday

The Holiday Season is just around the corner. During this time of year, we spend more time together celebrating the holidays and entertaining everyone who just happens to stop by. With the increase in time spent together it’s easy to become stressed out and overwhelmed. There is so much that needs to be done in order to prepare for holiday dinners, festive fetes, and just the occasional drop-in visit. The list of things to do often times seems a mile long. Food to prepare, gifts to buy, places to go, and people to see. The hustle and bustle is almost constant. Is there any way to avoid what feels like constant stress during the holiday season? Yes! We have five helpful holiday planning tips for you to help your holidays go off without a hitch.

Be sure you subscribe to the Glove It Blog to receive the latest posts right in your inbox!

Make a List

This seems basic enough. Whether it’s for the entire holiday season or just one soiree, write out just what needs to be done to make the event successful. Having a holiday party for friends and family? Plan out the menu, make a grocery list, plan out what needs to be cleaned etc. Consider it a game plan for the day. Not only will everything surely get done, but crossing things off is incredibly satisfying. Don’t overload yourself. Delegate responsibilities to others, children, and even party guests. Don’t be afraid to ask. Often times party guests want to help but not impose themselves upon the host/hostess. Have them refill drinks and snacks leaving you more time to mingle and enjoy yourself.

Stock Up

Over the season you never know who’s going to drop in for an unexpected visit. Shop with the goal of entertaining all season long in mind. Stock a variety of cookies and crackers in your pantry. Purchase nuts in bulk, and have a selection of go-to dips in mind just in case the situation arises. Every host and hostess have a well-stocked selection of refreshments available. When it comes to drinks keep a selection of coffee, tea, cocoa, and soda on hand. For the adults, stock a bar with the essentials including gin, vodka, and a selection of mixers. If you really want to go the extra mile have a selection of wines or even champagne to the mix.

Set the Mood

When it comes to having a party, the more casual yet festive the better. Comfort is key. There’s no need to create a sensory overload when it comes to decorations, scents or sounds. HGTV suggest subtle decorations like grouping a set of vintage ornaments and twinkle lights as a centerpiece or adding a classic wreath with a stunning ribbon to your front door. When it comes to scents winter has some of the best. Whether it’s a Christmas tree, apple cinnamon, or even cloves, candles or fragrances, there are inexpensive ways to your home smell cozy. Create a playlist of your favorite mix of holiday tunes or stream one on a site like Spotify. Avoid playing songs with lyrics during dinner to prevent guests from feeling like they must talk over the music.

Be Prepared

This one might seem a little contradictory. If I could always be prepared I wouldn’t be so stressed, would I? Well, there is one thing we often forget to prepare for during the holiday season: unexpected gift givers. You know, the ones who mean well by sharing their gift giving spirit, but ultimately leave us feeling badly we had nothing to give them in return. Purchase small gifts, even throughout the year, to prepare for these situations. Buy items like champagne or wine in bulk. You can give these items out one bottle at a time ensuring no one goes home empty handed. Everyone enjoys a sweet treat from time to time, so while you’re busy baking, bake a little extra. Cookies and other treats never fail to impress and they are an inexpensive way to show your gratitude and appreciation.

Do It Your Way

At the end of the day remember there is no perfect holiday. There’s no need to create overcomplicated menus or a giant fuss. Relieve the pressure by using your tried and true family traditions. They are traditions for a reason after all. There’s always a solution to any problem or frustration. Order catering or change up prepared food by adding a few special ingredients. You guests won’t mind premixed drinks like eggnog or sangria. Create a go-to signature cocktail or drink that can be served at any time. Ideas like these reduce the amount of extra stress because the holidays are what you make them, and being together is what’s important.

Now that the holiday season is seemingly approaching quicker and quicker each day, we hope these tips can help you ease the stress. The holidays are a joyful time to spend with one another taking in all of the sights, scents, and sounds. It’s easy to forget this when we decide to take on too much, work on overload, or just simply procrastinate.

The trendy colors for the coming year embrace our modern lifestyles while giving off sense of security and simplicity often missing from our lives.

Neutral tones typically have two types: warm and cool. Warmer neutral tones contain browns, tans, and even golds while cooler shades include silvers, whites, and grays. Neutrals are core colors that serve to put focus on other colors or tone down more overpowering shades. They are more than just simple. In 2018, they provide a color story that is a contemporary adaptation of classic colors. Colors like coconut milk (an off-white), warm sand (a chic brown), or harbor mist (a mid-tone gray) will be everywhere in the coming year. Metallic shades (like silver and gold) are often one of the hottest color trends around and they will be shining once again in 2018! Our Vienna pattern zeros in on this trendy neutral color palette and adds a beautiful bronze metallic sheen accent to each and every piece.

Monochrome Patterns

Resort 2018 runways featured plenty of patterns. Everything from bright vintage prints to botanicals and even hexagons. Stripes never go out of style so it’s no shock they were all over the runways from Zac Posen to Fendi. It’s time to go bold. Of course, we gave it a little Glove It twist for our 2018 collection but adding colorful stripes into the typical black and white for our Cabana Stripe line. Spring runways had plenty of dazzling colors to choose from including shades of yellow, pink, and blue. Paired together with black and white, the trendy color combination in our Cabana Stripe print has elevated the trend to be more confident, alluring, and appealing.

Navy is very appealing, mysterious, and relaxing color. It’s perfect, timeless, and provides an elegance few dark colors can. Navy is versatile color which can be used as main focus or as an accent piece. While mostly paired with a shade of white, it is ideal for contrasting with vibrant colors and daring patterns. There’s no surprise this color is a huge trend. It’s universally flattering and the perfect alternative to black. Pantone’s Sailor Blue is a trendy, navy blue that can be featured as the mainstay of any wardrobe. Navy’s versatility makes it the perfect benchmark for anyone’s personal style.

Improve Your Golf Swing Like a Pro

golf-swing-glove-it

Nothing is more important to golf than having a great swing. There’s one secret to driving the ball further and with more force: strength training. When people hear, strength training they immediately worry about bulking up and becoming muscular, but there are plenty of exercises that can be done daily without bulking up. Strength training can give you better control and movement of your body which will have a positive impact on the movement of the club.

Any golfer knows a golf swing puts plenty of pressure on the muscles and joints of the shoulder, elbow, and wrist. Strength training protects the joints and muscles of the body so you can reduce injury and increase the range of motion essential to a good game of golf. It’s a win-win! Strength training is the key to many positive body changes but where do you begin? Women’s Golf Journal caught up with Annika Sorenstam’s strength coach, Kai Fusser, to give readers the inside scoop on three simple exercises to add into their fitness routines. If you weren’t sure about strength training, it helped Annika Sorenstam win 89 professional tournaments including 10 majors!

There are four core areas to focus on when it comes to strength training for an improved golf game: glutes, hips, thighs, and abdominals. These are some of the safest and most efficient exercises anyone can do just about anywhere. They target the main groups while improving posture so you walk taller and prouder.

Push Ups might recall unpleasant memories of gym class, but the positives outweigh the unfortunate memories. Push-ups use nearly every muscle in the body during a rep so they can train multiple muscles groups at once. They stretch muscles increasing overall flexibility and range of motion. Most importantly push-ups protect the areas of the shoulder and back most prone to injury allowing you to keep you playing your best golf game.

The plank is one of the most dreaded but impactful abdominal exercises around. It pulls abs toward the ceiling completely engaging multiple muscle groups. Better core strength improves balance which, as any golfer knows, is essential to hitting a great shot. Kai suggest a regular plank lasting around 30 seconds. There are tons of variations from many different directions which activate different muscle groups. It’s better to start slow and grow into more advanced positions as you become stronger.

Squats are simple and effective for strengthening the muscles of the legs and butt. They are one of the safest ways to build strong legs while protecting the spine, and when done correctly, the knees. Increasing the number of squats in your fitness routine can promote movement and balance creating a better focus on the parts of the body used to enhance your golf swing. Squats also burn fat while sculpting the core areas. They should be done correctly to prevent injury, so Kai suggests using a chair to achieve the ideal squat done safely.

Strength training has so many positives when it comes to enhancing your golf game, but it can also have major benefits on your lifestyle. As a golfer, you know physical activity is important to overall health, but we often become acclimated to our fitness routine and need to change things up. If you’re ready to change things up, check out Kai Fusser’s fitness suggestions here. Now that you’ve worked your muscles and improved your golf game, why not improve your style game with one of our fun, comfortable golf gloves?
