How do you calm your Thanksgiving cooking anxiety?

Hi- So, I am hosting T Day again as usual but this year for a bigger group with overnight guests. I have my menu planned, food bought, cooking schedule planned. But, I am a nervous wreck. I can't sleep and wake up around 3 a.m with worries about food, making endless mental lists in my head. I agonize over every dish, to be sure it is perfect. I am always afraid i have forgotten some necessary ingredient or will overcook or ruin a dish. I wish I could enjoy the cooking, but I can't, I'm such an anxious mess. How do you chill out and not stress about guests or major holiday meal prep?
