Preparing for Christmas
My neighbor's Christmas lights have been up for over a week now.
Some of my friends have their gifts bought and wrapped.
I'm already receiving Christmas cards in the mail. And the list goes on.
Me? Well, let's see... We put up some lights last night. I have bought a few gifts and have thought about buying more. And Christmas cards? Ummmm... they haven't hit my radar yet.
It's easy to feel overwhelmed this time of year especially. The idea of "keeping up with the neighbors" takes on a whole new meaning when tiny white lights are involved.
So this year I need to focus on caring for myself amidst the stress. Getting plenty of rest, taking time to work out and doing something enjoyable like reading top my list.
How are you preparing for the Christmas season?
