Stop Settling for Less and Upgrade Your Life!
Welcome to the next ‘New thought of the Week and Upgrade Your Life’ Series. This 12 week series will give you valuable ‘New Thought’ Information and Advice that will help you learn how to enjoy the Holidays that are fast approaching. We hope our advice will open you up to a new way of celebrating them.
Ah yes, the Holidays, they’re supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year, and as you know they can have a way of turning into a very stressful time. The holiday season can often bring unwelcome guests, an overwhelming array of demands, parties, shopping, baking, cleaning, socializing and entertaining to name just a few. Or perhaps you may be spending the Holidays alone and are feeling a little lonely or depressed. But whatever the source of your angst, family dynamics, financing, lack of self-confidence, or painful memories, etc…you are certainly not alone and there ARE solutions.
Therefore, I’ve devised some simple and practical tips and fixes that are included in this 12 week series so you can learn how to minimize the stress that accompanies the holiday celebrations. You may even end up enjoying them more than you thought you could. J
Bottom Line: In writing out this series, I’m simply shedding some light on some common habits that can make all the difference for you during the Holidays. A great deal of human happiness is due to Intentional Activity. It is possible for us to significantly increase our happiness simply by altering what we choose to do every day. And usually much of what we do, we do on autopilot based on your thinking, beliefs, and habits
So, why not try these ideas and suggestions to remind you that the people who want to be happy during the Holidays have incorporated this mindset into their thoughts and behavior the following:
They nurture their important relationships - #2 Series
A recent national survey showed that when someone claims to have five or more friends with whom they can discuss important problems, they are 60% more likely to say they are happy. The number of friends isn’t the important aspect over time; so a close connection with someone is something you need to continually earn and never take for granted especially during the Holidays.
Happy People leave space to love themselves too:
The most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of loving someone else too much, and completely forgetting that you are special too. Yes, nurture others, but don’t forget about yourself, first. Happy people know that self-love is not selfish. They put their needs first because they see the power of showing up fully for others. When you take care of yourself, you are better able to help the people you care about. Make sense?
Magic Morsel Tips: Be realistic. The holidays don’t have to be perfect or just like last year. As families change and grow, traditions and rituals often change as well. Choose a few to hold onto, and be open to creating new ones, and don’t be stuck in the older traditions.
