Christmas and the end of the year can be stressful. There's shopping, wrapping, decorating, and cooking to be done. Scheduling time with friends and family and meeting other obligations usually makes the holidays more hectic.
Here's a hint that might help ease your stress.
Now think about what you really love most about Christmas. Is it cookie baking, or decorating your home, or giving your time? Visiting with friends? A quiet evening with your love? Watching movies in your PJ's?
Whatever makes you smile is what should be pushed to the top of your to do list. Let the other stuff slide, or get it done quickly and out of the way. Say no thanks to crowded stores, boring events or people that you don't care to be around. Say yes to laughter, love, and simple pleasures.
These little things that you love most are the memories you will always cherish. Do more of them.
