Create Memorable Holiday Moments

The past six weeks have been like a whirlwind that keeps gathering speed.

First, we had a major snowstorm the last week of October that knocked out power for over a week.  And before I could fully recoup from that, I found myself in the throes of preparing for Thanksgiving.

And, now Christmas is just a few days away!!!

Although, over the years I’ve found ways to cut down on all the hoopla of shopping, planning and cooking, I still sometimes find myself with more to do than I have energy or time for.

Have you ever felt like that?

Earlier I shared with you tips to make your holiday stress free. And, if you haven’t already gotten your audio of 30 Tips in 30 Minutes for Making Your Holidays Stress-Free, Budget-Friendly and Loaded with Remarkably Rewarding Memories, you can get it here:

Now, I want to share with you some of the things that work for me to ensure that I create memorable holiday moments even when I feel stressed and overwhelmed.   Only you know what will work best for you and your lifestyle. So use what I know for sure as your guide to create your own unique rituals, plans and memorable moments for your holiday celebrations.

What I know for sure:

  • The more you push yourself to do more and more, the less energy you will have to accomplish what’s important to you.
  • Nothing is cast in stone and you can always revise, omit or change any plans you’ve made.
  • Traditions, habits and rituals can be altered or recreated to best fit your present lifestyle and preferences.
  • You are totally in control of what you choose to do and give.

Holidays ought to be joyful times filled with memorable moments. And, when what you’re doing stressful, you’re missing out on the true meaning of celebration.

Wishing you a joyful, memorable, stress free holiday!
