A dozen ways to survive the holidays.

Written by Connie Larkman

At this time of year, it seems there are never enough hours in the day, or weeks before Christmas to accomplish all we sent out to do. So if you find yourself on a crazy sprint through Advent –– a time of year that should be more reflective and spiritual –– take a few minutes and try a few of these ways to get through the holidays.


1
Breathe

Clear your mind, and focus on the task at hand. Concentrate on one thing at a time.


2
Pray

Remember the reason for the season.


3
Play

All work and no play makes one miserable. Schedule time to live in the moment, and enjoy life with those around you. Today is a once in a lifetime experience.


4
Plan

Waiting until the last minute never works.


5
Organize

The stuff you need to accomplish won’t seem overwhelming if you break it down into smaller steps.


6
Delegate

You don’t have to do it all yourself. Don’t be afraid to ask for assistance.


7
Exercise

Take care of the body God gave you and it will take care of you. Exercise is a great way to relieve stress. Don’t waste time worrying about the extra calories you are sure to take in –– get moving and get over the guilt.


8
Reflect

Meditate on the gifts and blessings already in your life. You know what they are.


9
Toast

The holidays are a time of family traditions. Pay tribute with a toast to those who’ve gone before you.


10
Worship

Give thanks to God for the precious gift given to all of us, Jesus Christ.


11
Practice spontaneity

Break away from your routine as a way to recharge. Do something different.


12
Retail therapy

You have to shop anyway.
