The red and green decorations are out …
the turkey’s roasting in the oven …
nostalgic tunes fill the airways and the kids are anxiously awaiting Santa….
If you’re anything like me, you struggle to take time out over the break for YOU!
But you should …
It’s a time for rest, delicious food, and creating memories with those you love.
So make sure you take time to laugh, be silly, get caught up in fun just because it’s fun…
For me it means dressing up in silly costumes and watching the awe and innocence of my nieces & nephews as they leave out the cookies and milk for Santa … peering into the sky with childlike wonder, hoping to catch a peek of this amazing man
It means making one giant bed out of all of our duvets and pillows and snuggling down with them to watch Christmas movies we’ve all seen fifty times before.
It means constructing your own dessert from whatever you like and having dessert after breakfast, lunch and dinner IF you choose to
Just be present in the moment 🙂
Here are 8 more things you should make an effort to give out as often as you can this holiday season:
A Thank You
Unfortunately, holidays only happen over a few specific days of the year.
Then it’s back to the grind we call life and the behaviors we had before all the gifts and cheer.
Treat every day like a holiday and continue to give these gifts freely
Although the gifts above don’t cost any money, they do require initial effort to become habit.
Use the holidays to give a hug, and a thank you.
