Be Sneaky and Have Fun

Want to Conquer the Holidays this Year?

Today plan an anonymous act of kindness that you can carry out next week. The whole idea is that the recipient will not find out it was you.  Here are a few ideas to get you thinking:

  • Send someone in financial need a few bucks and an encouraging card.
  • Set an ornament on a co-worker’s desk.
  • Give an encouraging book—used is okay.
  • Find positive quotes online and print on festive paper.
  • Fill a gift bag with their favorite snacks.
  • Buy a gas card and a toy car from the dollar store—attach a catchy note “Here’s a little something to get you from point A to point B–Happy Holidays.”

Stay Positive

Want to Conquer the Holidays this Year?

Have an attitude check. Count your blessings. Keep your focus on the things in your life that are good. Be positive. Smile. Follow your mother’s advice: “If you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all.” We can control our attitudes and our attitudes make a world of difference.

Embrace the Outdoors

Want to Conquer the Holidays this Year?

There are lots of ways to enjoy the outdoors (just be sure to dress right)–a brisk walk in the cold, sledding, cross country skiing, snowmobiling, making snowmen or having a snowball fight.  Enjoy of a cup of sugar-free hot cocoa or sugar-free apple cider to warm up.
