A Stress-Free Thanksgiving

Published by Aubrey Sohaney

You may be thinking, “How can I possibly have a stress-free Thanksgiving?”, especially if you are the one hosting the family and friends. Everything from cooking for a group of people, having the right decorations, having enough food, dishes, etc., and more can all contribute to stress levels rising this time of year. Fortunately, there are some tips you can follow that can help make Thanksgiving much less stressful-including scheduling a spa day right after!

Be Organized

This may seem like an obvious tip, but there is a difference between knowing what you’ll be making and having a menu with every single ingredient written down. Planning the menu more than a couple of days in advance means that you will have enough time to learn of any allergies, get the proper ingredients, and know what sort of dishes and room you will need in the kitchen. With this, make sure you have a head count so you know how much of each thing you will need to keep everyone full, but still be reasonable. If there will be ten people, you do not need four desserts.

Plan Ahead

Make a list of everything that needs to get done, and figure out what can be done ahead of time. What recipes can be made the day before? Most desserts can, and mashed potatoes heat up in the oven easily, and you can likely cut the rolls ahead of time. Additionally, always have enough time to go to the grocery store for last minute things you realize you still need!


As the host, you may not want to let anyone else in the kitchen or have them make up the table. However, it is important to rely on some people to help with smaller tasks. You can have a cousin set out a vegetable tray, someone can help refill drinks or set up a dessert tray. Have these tasks in your mind ahead of time so that when people offer to help, they can contribute without you worrying about the worst cook in the family ruining the turkey.

One of our favorite tips on getting through Thanksgiving with as little stress as possible is to schedule a spa soon thereafter. That way, you always have something to look forward to, and you can de-stress before the second wave of holidays begin! At our Infinity Medical Spa, you can relax with facial rejuvenation, non-surgical treatments, and more! Contact us to schedule a consultation.

First time here & I will definitely be back! Allison did my Botox. She was honest when I asked her what areas she thought botox would be best for me & explained the whole process. I have received botox at other cosmetic centers & this was by far the best experience!
