    How To Stop Halloween Being So Stressful For A Mum

    Halloween is a time for spooky fun and tasty treats, dressing up, spending time with friends and family - but, especially nowadays, it can also become a stressful time for mums.

    The pressure is on us again, to make perfect costumes (either by spending a fortune or creating by hand!) to trying to keep up with the latest trends such as Boo Baskets!

    It's so easy to get caught up in it all, and then feel guilty if we don't succeed. But it needs to change. Let's embrace the fun of Halloween without the stress, the overspending and mainly, the guilt!

    Ditch the Costume Madness

    The pressure to create or purchase extravagant, perfect, lifelike costumes for you and your family is one of the most common causes of Halloween stresses!

    It can be extremely time consuming, extremely expensive and I need to remind you that it's perfectly ok to choose convenience over complexity. It's ok to buy supermarket costumes, it's ok to reuse costumes you already own, it's ok to borrow costumes, it's ok to not buy a costume at all!

    Embrace Simplicity and Budget-Friendly Options

    The Halloween industry has boomed over the years (even more so than Valentines Day now I think!) with 'trendy' items, elaborate decorations, fancy gift baskets for kids and partners, expensive days out that people are now calling a "family tradition", I'm talking to you, pumpkin patches. Haha.

    It's so easy to fall into the trap and feel like you need to keep up with all of these trends. However it's important to remember that simplicity can be just as enjoyable. Instead of overspending on novelty "traditions", opt for budget friendly alternatives.

    Often it's the simple traditions like carving pumpkins or wrapping up cosy watching Halloween movies together that create the most memorable memories!

    Let Go of Pinterest-Perfect Expectations

    Social media, particularly Pinterest and Instagram can make it feel like everyone else is having these perfect, movie worthy extravagant Halloween moments, but it's so important to remember IT'S NOT REAL.

    These images are highlights and not reality. I remember feeling the same over the Summer, when everyone was posting images of expensive holidays abroad and it felt like everyone was going away, but that just wasn't true at all. A tiny slither of people who I follow were going away, and everyone else was struggling with money, just like us. I feel like social media promotes these fancy photos on purpose to make you feel like crap!!

    It's so important to let go of the pressure to create a social media worthy Halloween and embrace your life, your family. Your children will appreciate your presence and excitement more than perfectly staged photos. (Honestly, kids hate it most of the time! Haha)

    Halloween Is About Fun, Not Perfection

    Halloween is about fun, and creating memories. It's not about perfection or trying to impress your followers, or your neighbours! Don't feel pressure to decorate your home elaborately or keep up with every trend, just to have something to post about!

    Instead focus on what makes you and your family happy! Whether it's carving your pumpkins together or watching Hocus Pocus!

    Make Halloween about the experience not about the aesthetics.
