While we often get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the holidays, here are three thoughtful ways to plug more fully into the spirit of the season:
1. Be Present
Unfortunately, we tend to make the holiday season about the wrong kind of presents.
'Tis the season to embrace being more present. The time we have on this earth is a gift. Slow down. Enjoy these moments.
Like a wide-eyed child, seek out the joy and wonder in the world. Look for the beauty in the simplest of things. Be kind to others. Share a smile. Breathe. Celebrate the time you have with the loved ones around you - your family, your friends, your pets. Reflect on the good things in your life. Soak yourself with gratitude, count your blessing, and focus on the true spirit of the holidays - the gift of presence.
