Once December rolls around, the stress and frenzy of the upcoming holidays begins to bubble up within us. As hard as we try to fight it, we usually end up succumbing to it eventually.
I am very excited about Christmas this year. Usually I procrastinate about it for much too long and then end up running out and cramming all of my shopping into 1-2 days. Since I’m mentally prepared for Christmas this year, I can see that I’m taking a more proactive approach than usual and it’s already paying off.
- I am asking people what they want or need for Christmas rather than trying to figure it out on my own or waiting for them to get in the mood to make a list.
- I am doing a lot of shopping online. The price of shipping is a very small price to pay for the amount of time I would have wasted shopping in person.
- I put my Christmas tree up early and I have found that it has kept my Christmas spirit going strong.
- I will have my Christmas shopping done early and will just be able to enjoy the sights and sounds of the season.
