Holiday season is just around the corner, and so begins the hunt for picking out the perfect presents for those we love. Though it’s undeniably joyful and festive this time of year with all the gatherings and celebrations, it can also come with stress and baggage. Before all the festivities kick in on full swing, here are a few reminders to keep in mind to stay grounded and mindful throughout the season.
Tip 1: Inject a sense of play
The season is all about joy, so don’t let all the logistics and planning turn the season into a chore. To bring more fun into the season, carve out time to do something you really enjoy. Maybe that means baking, watching a nostalgic Christmas movie, or reveling in the daily surprise of an advent calendar. Whatever it is, indulge whatever makes you feel good to keep things in balance.
Tip 2: Think about experiences
Instead of just shopping for an item your recipient might like, consider the kinds of experiences that bring them joy.
