For some reason, this holiday season hasn’t been the best for my family. Frankly, we can’t seem to get our sh*t together.
Who’s going where?
Who’s cooking what?
Did we finally decide what to get Mom?
ARE YOU SERIOUSLY GOING TO A FOOTBALL BOWL GAME THE DAY BEFORE CHRISTMAS EVE?!
Of course, deep down we know none of this really matters. The holidays are all about being together—not food or presents or even where we end up with one another.
Still, every now and then I feel like Ralphie getting his faced kicked in by Santa.
Which, is what led me to think about some of the things I can do to avoid getting too wrapped up in this holiday season (pun sort of intended) and keep my mind and body in check.
I’m not going to provide a list of these things, as everyone’s list will be different.
Because it all boils down to three words: Let it go.
Take care of your mind and body this holiday season by learning to let go. You can’t control everything. The turkey might burn. Presents might disappoint. Someone might even go missing. Chances are, nothing will turn out exactly as planned, and that’s okay.
Just do what you can, and let go of the rest.
