I've found it really hard to find the time to study with all the additional running around getting ready for Christmas. How does everyone else do it or are you too feeling like this?

Feeling exactly the same! I focused on finishing my course before Christmas and can't even think of starting the next one until after Christmas is over and done with! Its not really the Christmas bit more the crazy work load at this time of year - folks love getting married in the Christmas season.

It is hard trying to get things done with work and everything else, but don't beat yourselves up and set unachievable goals. If you are managing to squeeze some study in during the day/week then surely this is better than nothing? :-) Just do what you can amongst all the oragnisation and enjoy the holiday period when it arrives, nothing will be lost by doing so. This is how I look at it, hope you all have a wonderful Christmas! :-D

I'm going to start properly after Christmas, I'm reading CBT books for now, but with working in the day and making presents in the evening for Christmas leaves little time for studying at the moment.

I am on assignment 4 in my course and will only go on leave on the 21st, I still try to put aside an hour to read. I find taking the kids to the pool great as I can sit and read and they swim no demands. I shall take a break over the christmas days and start again after that. I am hoping to submit my test before christmas.

Im feeling exactly the same, working in food retail this time of year is very busy, thus leaving little time to study, but hey ho keeps me out of trouble :)

To be honest I have stopped trying to study for a couple of weeks, a) its good to give yourself a break, as with everything sometimes just taking a bit of time out to relax is nice, and b) I was finding that I was getting too stressed to study any way constantly thinking of the list of other things that needed doing!

Im very relaxed about my study and am more on a 'when I finish it deadline' rather than must do it now. So my advice would be if you feel its all getting too much to do everything then stop and take a break and have a 'christmas holiday'
