It's easy to let the season fly by in a blur of Bing Crosby music, presents hurriedly thrown into Target gift bags, and casseroles made in the dead of night (because when else will you make it?). Wait, did you forget to buy your mother-in-law a gift or did you accidentally hide it with your kids' presents?
'Tis the season that goes by faster than any other. And while we love it, most of us can agree that the holidays are less about the experience and more about just getting everything done in time.
This year, instead of just giving gifts and creating Instagram-worthy charcuterie boards, what if we focused on the experience of the holidays? What if we all took a deep breath in and out, put some music on, and danced? What if we went on long drives with our family, took care of ourselves, and focused on giving the gift of being fully present and open to what this season has to offer instead of being overwhelmed by it all? I hope these items can be the start of that process for you and your loved ones.
Here's to giving the gift of being fully present and fully yourself this season. .
