How to breath during the holidays

holidaysWe are in the final stretch for the holidays, this is the week most of us are going to be running errands. We still have much to do, from last minute gift shopping, to the company’s’ holiday party but most of all for the Christmas Eve and Christmas day’s dinner. Hosting a dinner party can be stressful.  And to top all that, family and friends who are coming in to stay for a few days, we must make sure everything is in order.

Even though it is a joyful time we are busy and forgetting a bit about the spirit of Christmas.

This week we need to remind ourselves to breath, to take the time to ground ourselves. Tension could be on the rise, we need to take the time to pace ourselves. Have the children doing some activities that will give you a break. If they are old enough have them help you, this will be a great way to teach them your holiday traditions.

Tradition is a wonderful thing to pass on to your children. Teach them where it comes from and make it as much fun as you can. In the kitchen start to teach them how to cook. It is a great opportunity to have them out of their social media. Instead connect with them, see what they are up to. Have some great stories to tell while they are helping you. Be patient, maybe they are not going to be perfect while doing the task you are asking them to do, but at least it is a start. Later, at dinner you can acknowledge them for their contributions.

When going shopping remind yourself to be kind to the store employees. A lot of people are going to buy the same items you want, if the shelves are empty it is not the employees fault. There is only so much they can order, if you are coming late in the day do not expect to have all the items available. Giving an attitude to the employees is not going to make the item you are looking for miraculous appear.

Stores are extremely busy this time of the year, as they are open longer hours to make it more convenient for their customers. Employees are working longer hours also.  You should take the time to thank them and appreciate all the hard work they are doing. It is not easy to deal with customers. Especially the ones that are rude and disrespectful.

Be grateful and thankful, count your blessings and always embrace your loved ones. If you are doing errands and see the red kettle for the Salvation Army give them some change.  Not everyone has a family to go to this holiday season. Giving what you can, could help the less fortunate and make their day more enjoyable.  This simple gesture can go a long way.
