|How to Stay Balanced this Holiday Season
For many of us, the holidays can be fun but
overwhelming. We savor the parties, the
decorations, the visits with family and friends but
there’s the stress of adding more activities –
shopping, sending holiday cards, social commitments,
etc. – to already full plates. Even if we start out
with enthusiasm and expectation, we’re often left
feeling physically exhausted and emotionally depleted
by the end of this festive season.
The holidays can be a time of joy and fulfillment if we
just maintain a sense of perspective. Below are
ways to do just that:
1) Borrow from the past. What made previous
celebrations special? What memories come to mind?
What was satisfying about them? Use the best
pieces of the past to create the best celebration this
year and in the future.
2) Start planning the holiday you want. Think about
what your dream experience would look like so you
can design a
celebration of your own making. Do you crave rest,
relaxation and rejuvenation? Do you want to party
with 100 of your closest friends? Could you use a
holiday getaway with your partner? Your festivities
should reflect who you are and how you have fun.
3) Celebrate. Now that you've taken the best
pieces from the past and planned a holiday that will
bring you joy, it's time to actually enjoy yourself.
Don't worry if a dessert is runny or if a gift isn't
the right size, enjoy the interactions and
opportunities to share with people you love. So
don't sweat the small stuff, just go have fun.
