Want a Fun Holiday Season? Here’s One Thing NOT to Do, Mom!

It’s easy to forget that holidays are supposed to be fun. This may be especially true for women, as they frequently try to make everything work out. Here’s one thing not to do to make the holidays more enjoyable: try to please everyone.

Instead, ask yourself what is it that you (yes you, not your mom, mother-in-law, partner, etc.), want the holiday to look like. It’s OK to speak up, really! That way, when the holiday is over, even if certain things happened that stressed you out, there will be good memories, too.
