The LOA Guide to Happy Holidays

November 15, 2014 | 10 Comments »

The LOA Guide to Happy HolidaysThis time of year we get a lot of input about how to minimize stress and maximize well being throughout the busy holidays.

They tell us to buy presents early to avoid shopping frenzies, to schedule regular downtime, to delegate our to-do lists, etc.

While I disagree with the premise that the holidays are inherently stressful, I agree it can be handy have a plan for managing challenges associated with family gatherings, year end travel and holiday financial strains.

There’s actually a simple way to sail through the next two months with grace and ease …

… that is to keep one question at the forefront of every decision you make:

What would I enjoy more?

That simple question can keep you on track for maximum enjoyment of the holiday season.

You might like it better in one of these forms:

  • What would be easier?
  • Which choice offers more relief?
  • What would be even better?
  • What would be most fun?
  • What’s another option, and which feels best?
  • What does my true self prefer?

Anything that leads you to higher vibrations is what we’re shooting for.

Because so often we make choices based on what’s expected or how to make others happy. But that isn’t always (or even often) in alignment with what makes us happiest.

Conscious creators know that nothing good comes from deviating from our bliss. (“Unhappy journeys don’t have happy endings,” Abe reminds us.)

Trusting your joy, releasing concerns about satisfying others, and giving yourself new and improved options to choose from – that’s worth building your holiday season around.

When you let your genuine preference be your guiding light through decisions about party RSVPs, gift purchases, food choices, travel plans, conversation topics, etc. you’ll not only give yourself the best gift of the year – but you’ll also have a powerful habit in place for a delightful new year.

    Love this! A few years ago I was so stressed out by my internal rules about Christmas (must do the full traditional Aussie / British turkey, mail out cards, pick the best presents. blah blah blah)…. I finally decided ‘screw it!’ and gave myself permission to skip it altogether.

    Felt SO GOOD!

    In fact, it felt so good that by mid-December I felt totally inspired to send presents, mail cards to a handful of friends (using last year’s leftover supplies), and grab a bunch of cold seafood and a bottle of champagne for hubby and me.

    Utter bliss. Lesson learned. Huzzah!!

  3. Glad you liked it, Michael. Thanks for chiming in to say so.

    And Janette, I LOVE how that works!! Giving ourselves true and free permission to choose whatever we want sometimes takes us to places we wouldn’t expect. (Like the place we were resisting to begin with.) ha

    Thanks for sharing that here!

    Great post Jeannette!

    I’ve found that asking these types of questions daily lol makes a huge difference in how my day feels.

    “You might like it better in one of these forms:

    What would be easier?
    Which choice offers more relief?
    What would be even better?
    What would be most fun?
    Whatโ€™s another option, and which feels best?
    What does my true self prefer?”

    Great reminder for the upcoming weeks!

    Love, Leigha

  5. I imagine you’re pretty good at remembering to ask the questions, Leigha. I sometimes get a little contrasty before I remember to orient myself to them! ha

    But practice makes perfect. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for reading, Leigha!

    Yes, it’s nice to give myself permission to be myself–and this year, we are doing Mexican a few days before Thanksgiving so that all of my family can be together. That feels better than having someone miss it, and the stress of me being the only cook ( I have three kids).
    You are exactly right, and for my small family, this works well. As for the rest of the year, I plan to do the same.
    Much love and blessings for your holidays!

  7. Col says:

    There is so much power in a question, isn’t there? One of my favorites is “How can I allow this to be light?”

  8. That’s exactly what I was thinking, Jen … to carry this habit through the entire year! Through all parts of life! What a wonderful year that will be!

    Col, thanks for sharing that version with us. I LOVE it! “How can I allow this to be light?” SO using it!

    Thanks you two! ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Yes!

    As ever, your advice works far beyond this specific instance. You are the Universal Queen Mama — I find so much to enthuse over here in these posts — so much that is universal in application —

    Thank you Jeannette ———————–

    PS:
    To Janette — I love your story! — how giving up all expectations brought you a surge of energy to make it happen in your own way

    To Col — best photo EVER — if that’s not happy/larky, I don’t know what is . . .

    I love the simplicity of this. I took a few holiday seasons “off” by buying myself luxurious holidays on the beach and skipping over the festivities.

    I see I was doing the best I could, but I still missed the heart sweetness of the holidays with my exquisite fam. I think of it now as me going to the mountain. I had to leave the world behind to hear what I really wanted for a moment.

    I love how sturdy and “safe to drink” as Hafiz would say, your advice is. I’m excited to carry these beautiful suggestions into my holiday play. Thanks for being so Magic Beans all the time <3
