By simply celebrating the Holidays at Home through conscious effort to relax and be present with the little things will pay off in ease and enjoyment!
Be thoughtful and choose only the things that bring joy for a less rushed, less forced and more enjoyable holiday season.
Thoughtful holiday planning
Hundreds of holiday fairs, light shows, parades, parties and want-to-do’s piling up. Lists of holiday crafts and foods and party ideas always calling.
But when you stop and focus on the things you actually want to do instead of worrying about everything you ‘should be doing’ you can slow down, relax and enjoy what matters most.
Ask your family what’s important to them and be thoughtful when planning what can be feasibly achieved.
Maybe once-annual traditions, like Santa photos, are no longer needed? Festive family time still is though!
