Happy holidays! ‘This the season of giving, so what could be better than showing your family and friends how much you love them? Besides the usual holiday gifts, try out some of these tips to add more love into your celebrations.
The holiday season is a time when we can all get a little too stressed out. There’s so much to do and sometimes it can feel like we’re running around like chickens with our heads cut off! But it’s important to remember what the holidays are really about: spending time with the people we love.
That’s why I wanted to share some tips on how you can infuse more love into your holiday season, so that you can enjoy this special time of year with your loved ones.
1. Tell your loved ones how much you appreciate them
A simple “thank you” goes a long way, especially during the holidays when we can get wrapped up in all of the materialistic aspects of gift-giving. Instead of just telling your loved ones what they did that annoyed you this year, take a moment to reflect on all of the things they do that make you happy and let them know how much you appreciate them.
2. Put Away Your Phones
One of the best ways to show your loved ones that you care is by giving them your undivided attention. That means putting away your phone and being present in the moment with them. I know it can be hard to resist checking our phones constantly, but try to limit yourself to only checking it every few hours or so. Your loved ones will appreciate it!
3. Do Something Nice For Someone Without Expecting Anything In Return
The best way to spread holiday cheer is by doing something nice for someone else! Whether it’s cooking a meal for a friend in need, volunteering at a local shelter, or simply paying for someone’s coffee in line behind you – small acts of kindness go a long way. And bonus points if you do it without expecting anything in return!
4. Make Time For Yourself
The holidays can be an incredibly busy and overwhelming time of year, so make sure to take some time for yourself. Whether it’s going on a walk, taking a bubble bath, or just curling up with your favorite book – taking moments out of the day to do something that you love will help you stay grounded and focused on what really matters.
No matter how you choose to celebrate the holidays, I hope that you are able to bring a little more love into your season. Wishing you all a happy and joyful holiday!
