…to be joyful and give thanks; to wait in long lines and bitter weather; to gather with family and friends; to encounter a Grinch, a Scrooge or two. ‘Tis the season to make what you will of it.
The Holidays can be the most joyous times or some of the most hectic. Having the right attitude and remembering the purpose of this time of year can keep you in the holiday spirit!
While traveling, plan ahead. Plan for delays, traffic and snowy weather. Everyone is out and about for similar reasons- keep calm and take the time to enjoy the Holiday music on the radio or the lights and decorations that line the streets.
Stressing about what gifts to buy or what to make for the big feast? Take some time and volunteer.Instead of allowing stress to consume your time, dedicate your time to others who are in need. Volunteering will remind you what the holidays are truly about and will be the best gift to yourself.
