Are the holidays truly happy for you this year? For most, they are not…but with our 3 simple secrets, you can put the happy back into your holidays and in your life!
Are you truly happy during the holiday season?
For most, the answer would be no.... The thing is, while the holidays are supposed to be a time of joy, peace and merrymaking, for too many of us, they are stressful and full of pressure. Take a moment to ask yourself, are you just trying to “get through” the holidays, so things can get back to normal?
Are you dreading a visit from the in-laws? Worried about making your flight on time? Or maybe you’re simply all partied out?
Well, there’s good news! You can turn the tide today with these 3 simple secrets to bring the happy back into your holiday season:
Here’s the secret: lower your expectations and forget about the expectations of others. Instead of focusing on being the “perfect person” and having the “perfect holiday celebration,” how about focusing on keeping it simple? Ask yourself what you can do to simplify your holiday routine. If that means declining an invitation, purchasing a dessert instead of baking, enlisting the help of your kids to tidy up or reducing the activities on your agenda, go for it!
In fact, create your own vision of your ideal holiday celebration. What would make you truly feel the joy of the season? Write that down and start your own holiday tradition. Your whole family will likely feel the relief of a simpler schedule and they will certainly benefit from your better mood!
So no matter where you are in your cycle of holiday celebrations, take time out to focus on one or all of these secretes. You deserve to be happy this holiday season and all holidays to come!
