Eagle Express, Warehousing and Fulfillment ExpertIt might be the beginning of November, but ask your friendly neighborhood mall Santa, or maybe even an Eagle Express courier, and they’ll tell you that the holiday season is already in full swing!


As the warehousing and fulfillment experts in DFW, the holidays are a busy time. Companies who stored their seasonal products at the end of last year are now moving products out from the warehouse and back onto their shelves. Other companies are moving their current stock into storage to make room for the holiday items. Organizations who operate outside the DFW Metroplex are looking for a 3PL partner to store their product until it’s ready to move to their Dallas customers.


No matter what your needs, a warehousing and fulfillment expert in Dallas could be the answer to your seasonal woes! Well, at least some of them.


Even if you’re all set up with someone to store and transport your items throughout DFW, there are still seasonal stressors that can really wreck the holiday mojo. What, exactly, is it that stresses us out this time of year? And what can we do about it? Our warehousing and fulfillment experts have a truckload of ideas, but we’ll condense it to just a few.



Why You’re So Stressed

Of course, seasonal stressors are unique to each of us, but, overall, here are some of the most common stressors:


You’re not eating properly

Holiday treats are a’plenty around this time of year! But all that indulgence can and does take a toll on your mental and physical health. Most folks, 60% of them, report feeling guilty over the foods they choose during the holidays. The old saying goes: you get out what you put in.


You’re getting less sleep

Whether it’s from traveling, staying up late for parties, or from sharing a room with your entire family while visiting grandma, sleep is elusive during the holidays. Without those 7-9 hours a night, it makes it harder to tackle your normal stress, not to mention the extra pressures that come from the holidays.


You have unrealistic expectations- If you want your holiday season to look like a Norman Rockwell painting, newsflash: it won’t. It can be difficult to switch your focus onto what you have, as opposed to what you don’t. When your reality doesn’t match your fantasy, disappointment occurs.



What can you do?

So those are the problems, now how do you fix them? Well, of course, you can eat better, sleep more, and focus on the positive, but one surefire way to reduce your stress is to take on fewer tasks.


A warehousing and fulfillment expert can assist you with a variety of transportation and logistics processes. Before the stress of the holidays hits, it might be time to sit back and consider handing over some of your common T&L tasks to a team of professionals whose sole focus is managing the storage and delivery of your items.


Whether you need a little more space to keep your products, or you need a lot of hands to take over your entire distribution chain, a courier like Eagle Express can help ease your stress, just in time for the holiday season.
