A thought on Christmas.

Christmas is the time of year that everyone starts feeling overwhelmed and stressed out! Cookies to bake, cards to send, houses to decorate, shopping, parties, kids concerts….Whew! I am exhausted just thinking about it! My advice today is to stop! Christmas is being marketed to you as a consumer, and you do not have to buy into it! If you can do all of the things you feel you have to for Christmas, without feeling stressed, perfect.  But if you are already anxious about it, let it go.  Christmas will come and go whether you get everything you feel pressured to get done or not.  And why not rethink Christmas? For me, the best part about Christmas is that my husband gets a week off because his work closes.  And our kids are also off school.  So, we get a whole week to spend together as a family.  Our focus is on sharing this time with our family, eating, drinking and being merry! Let the stress of Christmas go, and just enjoy it.  No one is judging you on your efforts this Christmas, so put some focus back on your family and friends.  Namaste.
