Do This One Thing Today
It’s perfect timing today to set your intention for how you want your holiday season to unfold. (New moon yesterday and Dec. 1 tomorrow).
For some the holidays are a time of joy and connection. For others it’s a time of stress and isolation. It can even be a combination of both.
But, whatever it has been in the past is in the past. Today you can create your ideal holiday scenario with a little bit of focus and intention.
Take a few minutes and write down how you envision your perfect stress-free, joyful holiday. Here’s a sample of my list:
- Have fun decorating the house and having a dance party with the family.
- Gatherings where I connect with friends but don’t tire myself out.
- Perfect gifts that arrive early so I can have them wrapped by Dec. 23.
- Lie on the floor under the Christmas tree and look up at the lights like I did when I was a kid.
Get as detailed as you like and most importantly feel the emotions you want with each intention. When I wrote my list I felt joy, connection, balance, relief, and awe – all the ingredients for my perfect holiday season.
A little pre-planning and you can set your holidays up to be perfect for you.
