A funny thing happens at this time of the year: we look forward to the holidays with great anticipation, dreaming of fabulous food, beautifully decorated homes, vacation time, and festive gatherings with family and friends. Then, as the holidays roll around, the same-ol’-same-ol’ reality sets in. Dreading all the extra work, shopping, decorating and cooking deadlines while also maintaining our daily work routine and chores, a thought begins to sprout between our ears: “Can’t wait ‘till it’s over so I can have my life back.”
This holiday season be kinder and gentler to yourself so you will actually enjoy the winter festivities. Don’t be pressured by anyone, including picture-perfect TV and magazine images, to attend or host more events than you can comfortably accommodate in your schedule. Create calendar pages for November and December and enter on them to-dos and events.
