The holidays can be warm, fun and amazing…but they can also be stressful as we try to figure out how to fit it all in. After all, most of us have full schedules already and that’s without any trees that need trimming, gifts that need finding or cookies just waiting to be baked.
This season, give yourself the gift of a renewed and refreshed perspective. Rather than look at each of your holiday tasks as another chore competing for your time, try to find the joy inherent in each one.
That Christmas tree you have to select and decorate is an opportunity for your home to twinkle with lights. Many of the ornaments you will use to decorate are miniature time capsules: “Hey! I made that snowflake in third grade.” The act of trimming the tree may be a reason for your family to come together amidst their various activities. You get the idea…
Try this attitude shift. I promise you’ll be glad you did.
