For a lot of people, this time of year brings on a lot of unwelcomed stress. If possible, try hard to find joy in the little things…
- When you’re walking through crowds during your holiday shopping, use it as an opportunity to create an intimate moment between your significant other and yourself.
- Families have different traditions. It’s all the more fun if you accept them and enjoy each and every new tradition you encounter.
- When the holidays get a little overwhelming, make sure to set time aside for yourself. Gift wrapping gives us the perfect opportunity to be alone and enjoy the silent part of your silent nights.
For many, remembering something happy from your childhood can help minimize those stressful feelings during this hectic time, like memories of lighting the candles on the menorah, reminiscing of the holiday traditions you did as a child such as watching a Christmas special on television. Who could forget when Flick’s tongue got stuck on the flagpole or when Ralphie’s father wins a lamp in a sweepstakes in the cherished movie A Christmas Story.
