Don’t Let Holiday Overwhelm Take the Jingle Out of Your Bells!

With all of the extra shopping, cooking, entertaining, traveling, etc., the holidays can leave us feeling less than merry and bright. This year, rather than going into holiday frenzy default mode, take a minute to review what you’re doing and why. Then, do this:

Take some things off of your list. That’s right. Review your holiday to-do list carefully for things that you put on it out of habit or because you “should” do them. Then do the joy equation: Is the joy you’ll get worth the effort? In many cases, the answer will be an absolute, “yes!” But, some things don’t pencil out. For me, it’s making Christmas cookies. It takes long time, makes a huge mess and then forces me to either gain the requisite five holiday pounds or try to resist their deliciousness. I’m out!

Remember that you don’t have to do everything yourself. Review your list for things you can delegate. This will require you to confront and release any perfectionism or control issues. (It’s worth it!). Yes, others won’t do things exactly the way that you would. I know. But, would you rather be the one to do absolutely everything (martyr alert!) or have time to put your feet up while sipping hot cocoa and watching It’s a Wonderful Life?

Thoroughly enjoy doing the things you ARE choosing. Of course, there will still be plenty of things that you will choose to do like braving the mall or standing in line at the post office. Decide before you even leave the house that you’re going to notice and enjoy all the holiday sights, sounds and smells. Become an observer at the mall. After all, malls are some of the most beautifully decorated spaces during the holidays. When you’re standing in line use the time to count your blessings, enjoy an audiobook or just listen to the hustle and bustle of humanity around you and know that we are all in this together.

Through it all, don’t forget to take care of yourself. Make sure that you spend enough time enjoying your favorite things about this time of year!

  1. I want to thank all those who have been helping others get their loved ones back with the help of Dr. Odunga. You guys really helped me find the right spell caster.
    This is about a real spell caster who did a great thing for me. My name is Kurtis Williams. This testimony is about this great spell caster Doctor Odunga who helped me restore my love life back. Me and my wife had a fight and this fight led to us filing a divorce paper with the court and I had made up my mind. My wife was also at the same time furious about the whole issue and my family was broken into two opposite sides. With advice from a good friend of the family I decided to save my marriage and consult a spell caster to save my marriage. I went online into the internet and searched for a real spell caster’s testimony and after reading the testimony of Doctor Odunga I knew he was the spell caster needed to save my marriage and my family from being divided. It was a twist of fate when my wife came to me one evening and said she had withdrawn the divorce papers and she didn’t want to leave me anymore. She loves me so much. I knew that the spell had worked and my marriage had been saved from jeopardy. This is a real spell caster and I believe there are people who need the help of a spell caster. Why not contact the one and true spell caster to put an end to all your problems and save your love life just like he did save my marriage. Thank you so much doctor for everything you did.
