You don’t have to stress about your Thanksgiving prep by following these tips.

Are you ready for Thanksgiving? No matter if you are fully prepared or still scrambling to find a big enough turkey, the holiday is almost here. To ensure that you don’t pull out your hair while preparing for the holiday, keep these stress-free Thanksgiving tips in mind.

  • Prepare ahead of time – you can make almost every Thanksgiving dish ahead of time and then just pop it in the oven to reheat before you start cooking. Cooking as many dishes ahead of time will let you spend more time with your friends and family ahead of time. As an added bonus, cooking before the holiday will allow you the time to share family recipes with your kids.
  • Ask for help – don’t try and do it all by yourself. Ask for help from your friends and family members. Not only will it help to lighten up your to-do list, but it will also help everyone feel more involved in the holiday.
  • Set the tone – your guests will take queues from you for how the holiday is going to go. If you are stressed out, they will be too. Consider cutting down the number of dishes you are cooking or scratching the homemade centerpiece so that you can relax and really enjoy the company of your friends and family.

Above all, remember that if something goes wrong on Thanksgiving, chances are, nobody will notice but you. Try to go with the flow and simply spend time with your loved ones. Thinking of Thanksgiving as a slightly bigger weeknight dinner can help to remove some of the stress that you may feel.
