How To Avoid Being the Grinch Around the Holidays 

Hello lovelies, The holiday season is without a doubt, My favorite time of the year. The Christmas carols, decorations and just the feeling of the holiday in the air. What can I say? I’m a sucker for Christmas.

 But what if your apart of the holiday wasteland? You know, That place we go every once in awhile, when we’re not in the mood for the holidays. Sometimes as we grow older, The holidays starts to feel like any other time of the year. And before you know it – we’re already in the new year.

It’s all apart of growing up, of course. However, The holiday season is a precious and valuable time to spend with family and friends. The more I think about the things that take me away from those happy moments, The more I try to avoid it to be filled with the joy and excitement of the holidays.  With that being said, the holidays can be a lonely and stressful time for someone, Thinking of the idea of being cheerful on the holidays is just wishful thinking for some. 

Luckily, There are some helpful tips to help you or anyone get into a more festive mood for the holiday season.

  1. Decorate your home/workspace | Decorating your home or work space is a great start to get into the holiday spirit. Hanging up wreaths, Playing Christmas music and hanging up the ornaments. Will definitely bring someone in the holiday spirit.
  2. Watch Christmas Movies | There’s nothing better than curling up on the couch on a cold snowy day with the tree lit watching everyone’s favorite holiday movies. Some of my personal favorite includes: Elf, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Home Alone, The Perfect Holiday, A Christmas Story and more.
  3. DIY Christmas Crafts | One of the things I enjoyed doing the most as a child with my mother and siblings was build a gingerbread house. Making a gingerbread house not only brings out your creativity, it brings everyone together for laughs and fun. There are thousands of easy DIY crafts that will bring everyone together.
  4. Prepare Christmas Dinner | If your family ends the holiday with a beautiful dinner for the whole family to feast. Preparing or helping cook or serve the Christmas dinner is a great way to get into the spirit. Even though it’s not a 5 star meal, Your family and friends will appreciate the time and effort.
  5. Focus on the positive | Instead of dwelling on thing that stress you out. Focus on the meaning of the holidays – Being around your loved ones. Christmas is about helping and sharing the joy with others. Stop worrying about the gifts you didn’t purchase yet or the gift you had your eyes onare sold out. Enjoy the presence of the people you love.
  6. Look at Christmas Lights | Drive around your neighborhood and check out everyone’s Christmas display. There’s nothing quite like Christmas than seeing everyday houses transform into Christmas extravaganza during the holidays.
