Focus on the Fun Parts
by Leigh Ann Rodgers
My first tip is to SIMPLIFY! The thought of sending out holiday cards overwhelms me... so I haven't done it in years. I decorated my house, but didn't decorate the railings this year - because the thought of it stressed me.SUZIE'S COMMENTS...
Second, focus on the fun parts - the get togethers, the music, the food, the decorations - whatever "IT" is that you really enjoy.
Third, create some fun and meaningful traditions that bring you joy - and that are not stressful or difficult to implement.
One thing I love to do is spend a day cooking (and eating) Christmas cookies. Another thing that I love to do is drive around looking at Christmas lights while listening to holiday music.
I love this time of year - and I think it is important to set limits and know when to say "no" so you don't feel over committed.
