Every year I write a post called Do Less Be More. And every year I wonder if I really do it. It’s fun to declare what I’m not doing and wag my finger at Christmas stress before Thanksgiving. But it doesn’t really matter unless I follow through.
Here are my main three ideas that I want to do this Christmas season:
Focus on People
Say yes to friends, snuggle with my boys and husband, enjoy doing things together even the things I wouldn’t choose to do.
With my time and money and be mindful of others, that last one seems so simple but I feel like I haven’t had my brain for the past two months and being mindful has somehow escaped me.
Slow the Season
Avoid hurry. Watch White Christmas too many times. Cook lots of meals. Sit on the sofa with friends. Take walks in the cold. Keep the computer closed. Rejoice, with the weary world.
But first, what are you saying YES to this season?
