Giving Thanks as we Roll Into the Holiday Season
Uncategorized Posted Nov 20, 2018 by Jennifer Torode
It’s Thanksgiving week and let’s be honest, if you’re American or living in this incredible country and embracing this truly special tradition, you woke up in an outstanding mood on Monday knowing that it’s a short work week.
As Thanksgiving essentially kicks off the holiday season and the window to Christmas grows narrower, it conjures up all sorts of emotions. From the anticipation of having to tackle a long holiday shopping list post-Thanksgiving, seeing some of your favorite people and a few undesirables, to all the scheduled festivities in between.
Hold the reins and prepare yourself for the holiday ride. Below are some Thanksgiving tips to consider.
Toss a genuine compliment or two
Help the host
Acknowledge those around you even if they drive you crazy
Never talk politics
Keep only the positive family traditions
Sing songs that make you smile
Give yourself time to regroup even for a few minutes
Initiate fun conversation and happy memories with people you hold dear
Verify that you’re drinking your drink and not someone else’s
Include kids in your conversation as they are what make the holidays extra special
Never drink too much and get sloppy—no one likes to babysit an adult
Go into the season with gratitude, not attitude
Happy Thanksgiving and here’s to a healthy and happy holiday season!
