When I though about this series I wanted to create something very edited and high quality. However I knew that having a full time job would set me up for quite a hard challenge. I wish I had the time to make some deep research related to christmas wellbeing but unfortunately that is how it is.
Instead I though I would talk to you about planning, and the times where planning fail and it is about adapting. Christmas is certain families are so incredibly stressful as it is a mix between things you want to do and sometimes things you also have to. Obligation… Quite a strange word when you think Christmas is supposed to be holidays. As I told you about in my last article about the joy of missing out life is also about being happy in your own term and unplug but these holidays are about sharing customs and tradition with your loved ones. And sometimes, the pressure of having a nice time takes over the nice time in itself.
I wish having a nice time was not overshadowed by the pressure of the holidays, the crowed christmas shopping mall or the missing ingredient you forgot to buy from the supermarket. Of course, that why planning comes into play, why we makes endless to-do-lists. What if this Christmas even if something does not go as well as expected, remember what really matters, as your loved ones for example or all the ginger bread biscuits. Realise that stressing over spending a good christmas is totally useless, let it flow, plan well and adapt to the current situation (and do your best to enjoy it !!!!).
