A Grinch-free Christmas: 6 Tips for a Happier Holiday Season!

I admit it: Last year, I totally Grinched out on Christmas. I was juggling an active toddler, lots of travel and multiple families to coordinate. This year, I thought of a few ways to make the holidays a bit happier: 

  • Think about who the event/activity/food is for. 
  • Perfection is just an illusion and a point of view. 
  • Manage your expectations. 
  • Spread the responsibility. 
  • Find a way to create a feeling, mood, atmosphere. 
  • Give yourself the gift of forgiveness, or at least acceptance.
