It’s the beginning of November and as much I as I would like to ignore my calendar it’s getting very close to the holiday season. Over the past few years I have made some choices which make the holiday season a little more enjoyable and less stressful. One important choice I made was not to decorate inside out outside my house. For quite a few years I had every intention of putting up lights and other things yet all of a sudden Christmas came and went and I felt bad about not decorating.
A few years ago I realized that I really didn’t like to decorate and the whole idea of it was causing me far too much stress and anxiety. I also realized that it was okay if I didn’t decorate and it was my choice to make. One year I may decide that I do want to decorate but it will be because I want not because I feel like I “have to”.
What is something that you can do to make the holiday season more enjoyable for yourself?
