Reclaiming the Holidays

Every year as the holidays approach I am saddened by the number of people who seem to have become slaves to their holiday traditions. Over indulging in food and drink, over spending, working to the point of exhaustion and extreme stress are too often simply accepted as the way things are. Most of us don’t even enjoy all the holiday hoopla but we feel pressure to participate. If you are dreading the holidays this year I have good news. It doesn’t have to be this way.

You can choose the way you will celebrate, the activities you will participate in and of course you always have the power to choose your attitude.   So get ready to make this the best holiday season ever by staying true to your own beliefs and values.
