In the hustle and busyness of the holiday season, it’s so easy to get fatigued, to be grumpy or to feel lonely or put upon. It helps when I remember to make a choice as often as I can rather then let my life run away from me. When I choose to… take a nap instead of powering through a project, put off an errand to take a walk with the dog, sit down with a snack and leaf through a magazine…I’m training myself to take it easy.
And the best part? My relaxed, happy mood is contagious.
