It’s that time of year again, when the stores are packed and you’re either looking for that perfect gift for the special people in your life, or just trying to navigate regular life with more crowds. We know, it’s stressful! 

According to a study by the US Highbush Blueberry Council, the holiday pressure that researchers are calling “festive stress”  develops in 3 stages:

  • Stage one begins on Dec. 13
  • Stage two begins on Dec. 18; that’s when “festive stress” turns severe
  • Stage three is where it peaks, on Dec. 25

According to researchers, there are 5 major sources of this festive stress:

Gift shopping 56% of researchers site gift shopping as the biggest source of holiday stress. Getting out to those busy stores or spending hours online is time consuming and expensive. No wonder this is the biggest issue for so many people.

Crowds and lines 54% of researchers find that this is the second biggest complaint for people around the holidays. This is why online shopping has become a solution for so many.

Cleaning 45% found cleaning the house was a big source of stress. Having family over around the holidays can invite extra scrutiny around the cleanliness of your home, and that’s not fun for anyone.

Knowing what to get people 38% found that racking your brain to figure out what gift will make family and friends happy is a pretty big headache around the holidays.

Cooking 36% of researchers sited holiday cooking as the most stressful activity around the holidays.
