Simplify Your Holidays

Oct 31, 2020 | Organization

The holidays can be a busy time and many times we just feel like we survive them rather than enjoying this special time of year. The COVID 19 Pandemic has been an excuse for all sorts of changes so why not use it to make changes to your holiday routine.

Start by identifying what is important to you and concentrating on the priorities but not every opportunity that presents itself.

  • Simplify Activities – Pick and choose the traditions, parties, and tasks you really enjoy.
  • Simplify Shopping – Find creative and easy ways to give gifts. This may mean exchanging names, volunteering or doing an activity together, making gifts or giving gift cards.
  • Simplify Decorating – Decorate using your favorite items, but do not get bogged down torturing yourself with tasks you do not enjoy.
  • Simplify Entertaining – Take the dread out of entertaining by getting the meal catered, making it a potluck or just keeping the menu simply. Keep them small and intimate so you can safely gather.

You can still enjoy family while keeping everyone safe. This year let us not just survive the holidays but go away with meaningful moments that bring us joy.
