1.Crowds and long lines
-Take a deep breath-everyone is waiting in the same line! Just think how relieved you’ll be after
2. Gaining weight
– It’s the same song and dance every year- focus on small portions and resisting
3. Getting into debt
-Spend special attention to sales and bargains-it’s the thought that counts!
