This challenging year has shone a light on the value of connection and togetherness, whether we’ve been able to be physically close - or not - with our families. There are lots of ways to embrace the very best of the holidays from the safety of home and be sure to bring a little Christmas magic into our lives regardless of the circumstances. Here are some ideas to get you through the holidays with glee.
Thanks to the many ways of connecting virtually with those we love, it is still possible to share special holiday moments no matter the physical distance between us.
For relatives that you know are missing traditional holiday gatherings, sending a care package is a touching way to reach out and brighten their day, and there are plenty of fun ways you can get stuff to them (even if you’re too late to make it to the post office).
More time together at home means more time to explore our creativity and build on the holiday traditions that we loved as children. We can pass those on as a gift to our kids.
It can be tempting to feel like you must overcompensate for this hard and stressful year by overspending and over-thinking about how you can make things great for everyone. Slow down and consider that you need to take care of yourself too. These are your holidays as well!
Most importantly, over the holidays stay safe and protect the ones you love by following government recommendations for gatherings during this pandemic. As always continue to make your health and wellness a priority. By following the rules this year, we can help make sure that 2021 will be a much better year for all of us.
