It’s the Holiday Season! Strategy #7
Oh boy here it comes ~ the holidays! It is 4 days until Thanksgiving and 33 days until Christmas! It can be a time of hustle, hurry, and unfortunately stress and worry. So between now and then we’re going to be talking about, and share ways to have a happy enjoyable holiday season from now through Thanksgiving and until Christmas. Each day I will share a tip, secret, or simple strategy on how to keep yourself balanced and centered through the holiday season. It will take about 5 minutes a day.
Hello and Welcome back! We are on strategy day seven! Let’s recap our strategies and see how you are doing. Here is what we have so far:
Today we are going to go there ~ yes, the relationship dynamic. The holiday season can be awesome, engaging, and even magical! It can be a time to reconnect, share memories, and create new ones. However, it can also be a time of unresolved issues, awkward meet ups, and displaced emotions. Just know that there may be others at your gathering that are sharing the same feelings, yet will not show it. So what can be done? How can we engage this time or year, instead of merely getting through it? Ah that is step 7 ~ plan simple activities! Yes, this is a time to get creative and put forth the energy toward creating great memories, and offer stress a valve to relieve the pressure at the same time.
So here are some ideas that are simple and fun (and yes will get your families heads out of their cell phones and respective electronic games ~ for my younger readers, we are going to old school it. big smile!).
So step 7 is to plan simple activities. If you have old board games at the back of the closet – pull them forward, and have some fun!
Action Step for today: Actively create some simple activities to encourage engagement and interaction. Keep your guest or family in mind and select something they can all be comfortable in doing.
If you have an idea for an activity, please post it in the comments below. I look forward to seeing them!
