Christmas is my favorite time of year, but I know some of you struggle with it. No matter what’s going on in your life, make sure you have the best Christmas ever. It’s super easy and here’s how!
I absolutely love Christmas and the holidays are by far my favorite time of year, but I know some of you struggle with it. This year Christmas is especially important, because it’s my 8 month old daughter Maddi’s very first celebration. I know she won’t remember it, but I will! No matter what’s going on in your life, make sure you have the best Christmas ever. It’s super easy and here’s how!
Embrace the music! I love all of the holiday music. Once Thanksgiving is over, I switch my radio over to Christmas music, as well as my running playlist. I indulge in this music only for the month of December, which makes it special. I live it up and dance to my heart’s content, now sharing it with Maddi, because I also want her to love holiday music. Music makes everything better!
Don’t stress yourself out. A lot of people get stressed around this time of year. I understand how you can, but this year choose to let that go. Christmas is so much fun, but you have to let it be. Don’t care about the presents, just love being around your family and enjoying the fun.
Find free things to do! It’s hard to not shell out a lot of money around this time of year, but honestly there are so many fun free things to do. Wherever you live, I’m sure there are plenty of neighborhoods that have great Christmas lights. Looking at Christmas lights is one of my favorite things to do! Besides lights, a lot of towns and or areas have holiday festivals/strolls. You can walk around and experience all of the fun that’s there just for the holiday season.
Embrace all that family time! I love spending time with my family and I make sure that I do around the holidays. Remember how special it is for everyone involved. Even if you don’t always get along with your family, set that time aside this year and just have fun with them!
Get out of your comfort zone. There are so many fun and different things to do around the holidays. Do you ice skate? Get out there with your family and try it out. Are Christmas movies not your thing? Turn the Hallmark channel on and embrace those cheesy Christmas movies!
Make sure you do what you want to do. It’s easy to feel obligated to others and while I’m all for that family time, I’m also all for making sure I do what I want to do. Christmas is such a fun time of year and we have to make sure we do the certain things we want to do too! So make sure you’re still enjoying what you want this Christmas.
I love this time of year so much, but don’t let it overwhelm you. It’s so much fun and it’s easy to learn how to have the best Christmas ever. Trust me when I say that. Remember the things that you want to do, embrace your family and just have fun! It’s only a month out of the year and why not end the year having a blast!
