There is a Way!

bigstock-Winter-Forest-56265137Holiday stress – we have experienced it and unfortunately tell ourselves it is a part of  the holiday reality. What if I told you holiday stress can be minimized or even eliminated? What if I told you that the tools you need to create a new way to a happier holiday are sitting on your desk or table? It is true. Don’t you have a pen and paper on your desk or table – that is all it takes.

Write out what usually causes you stress during the holidays.

Write out how you want to feel instead of feeling stressed.

What would you have to do differently to make the holidays feel better?

What is just one thing you have to do in order to create a better situation?

Take a deep breath, muster up some courage, and make a different decision.

We get caught up in the fear of change. What will others think of us if we change a tradition? But think: your change just might be something for which others will be grateful.

Happy holidays everyone,

keep the pen moving,


Jan, CEO and Founder of About the Author Network
