With the holidays upon us, it can be so easy to miss the moments that matter amidst the hustle and bustle of Christmas, New Years and everything in between. We believe in taking the time to slow down and take note of what is happening around us so that we can appreciate the little things without letting them pass us by.

Take Time

The first practice we love is setting aside time to relax and soak in the holiday season. For some, that might be curling up by the fire with a favorite book, a festive Christmas movie, and a cup of tea. For others, it might be taking a mid week afternoon away to get ahead of some Christmas shopping and beat the holiday rush. No matter what you prefer, take the time to enjoy the season and all of the events that come along with it.

Plan Ahead

Think about what kind of holiday events you wouldn’t want to miss this season. Is it a local Christmas concert, or your town’s tree lighting ceremony? Is it your annual Christmas party with close friends and family? Don’t let the holidays blow by without getting to do what you love. Make time for these special holiday memories.

Laugh More

It seems silly, but we all have a tendency to take the holidays too seriously when we should be celebrating love, family and joy. Don’t let stress or fear overwhelm you. Instead, jump right in and create space for laughter. It will keep the holiday season merry and bright.

Give Freely

The holiday season is all about the abundance mentality; there is enough for everyone. If there isn’t, we share. From charity organizations to your loved ones, give with an open heart. It is through the act of giving that we receive.
