The holiday season is so busy. When it comes around you often wonder if you’re ready for it. Do you have enough time, enough money to do what you need to do? But what we don’t think about is getting our hearts and minds ready for the holiday season. So how do we do that?
Getting our hearts and minds ready for the holiday season is set your mind on the reason we have Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, ect. Christmas celebrates the birth of Jesus, Kwanzaa celebrates African-American heritage, and Hanukkah celebrates the rededication during the second century B.C. of the Second Temple in Jerusalem. When we place our minds on the reason we have this holiday season, we can keep our stress levels down. Focusing on the real reason for the celebration, will lift our spirit and keep our mind on what is truly important and this will change our mindset and outlook for the season. We won’t be as stressed if we know it’s not about the gifts we buy others, it’s the love we give to others and our attitude towards others that is really a gift.
How do you get ready for the holiday season each year?
