Stay focused at Christmas
  As you cruise the laden aisles of the shops and supermarkets at Christmas it's easy to move into a kind of trance state where you keep adding things to your basket. Like when you're watching TV and suddenly realise you've eaten a large packet of crisps without noticing.

So stay conscious this year. Only go shopping with a list with each person's name, suggested presents by the side and vitally the amount you plan to spend. That way you'll avoid leaving the checkout with endless carrier bags full of chocolate golf balls and multipacks of socks.

If you feel the trance state coming on - go and grab a cup of coffee. As you try and choose between 10 different kinds of Christmas coffee remind yourself that there's a lot to be said for the simple life.
