Shopping during the holidays can be stressful – here are some tips for staying mindful.

Shopping for the holidays is not only a very stressful event for many, but also a very financially devastating one. Indeed, a CNBC report published in November 2017 reveals that shoppers are still paying back debt from 2016 holiday shopping, with about a quarter of shoppers saying that they overspent on shopping last year. If you’re planning on hitting the mall (or the web) for holiday shopping this year, here are some ways to stay mindful, which may help reduce stress and save money:

Go in With a Goal

One of the easiest ways to get stressed while shopping and blow a lot of money is to enter a shop without any semblance of a plan. Instead of doing this, you should go in with a goal, creating a list of the people you’re buying gifts for and what you want to find for them.

Set Limits

The problem with holiday shopping is that people tend to forget that they have limits, putting things on credit and telling themselves they’ll worry about paying it off later. But if you don’t set limits, you could be in big trouble later on. Take a hard look at your budget, set an amount, and remind yourself of that amount as you’re shopping.

Get to the Heart of Mindfulness

Being mindful means paying attention to yourself and your surroundings in the moment. As you shop, focus on how you’re feeling, the sounds and sights around you, and try to create a feeling of warmth and comfort within yourself that you can focus on. Further, focus on the joy of giving.

How do you navigate shopping during the holidays?
