The LOA Guide to Happy Holidays
This 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.
