Holiday De-stress Links

As a kid, the Holidays were so magical and uplifting.  I remember loving hot cocoa with marshmallows, listening to stories, and singing songs with classmates.  As an adult, it's become stressful and comes with a very large to-do list.  Let's talk about how to take the holidays back and have fun again.

With all of the planning, shopping, cleaning, and cooking this time of year, it is hard to not be stressed.  I love reading to relax, but with so much going on, I listen to my books as I cook, clean, or wrap gifts.  With this:  read/listen, I can read when it's possible or listen instead.

If reading doesn't fit in the schedule, make sure to laugh at least once a day!!!  This had me laughing so hard I cried!!  Laugh.  I had to redo my makeup - true story.

Another way to take back your holiday magic is to treat yourself.  Give yourself a Holiday Happy.  If you see something you love on sale like, HappyHappyHappyHappy, and Happy, treat yourself - why not?  You deserve the "get one" of the "buy one get one" deal.  You deserve that 70 percent off scarf you've been eyeing.  Think of it as your paycheck for putting the holidays together.

My point is to remember yourself this year and take a moment every day just for you, even if it is just five minutes.  It will help you enjoy what the holidays are supposed to be for you again!

  1. Oh my gooooosh I just watched the Ellen video and I have tears streaming down my face from laughing SO HARD. That was hilarious! I love Ellen! I also love the one she did with Dennis Quaid at starbucks and David Beckham getting a massage if you ever need an additional laugh. Thanks for getting my morning off to a good start.
