We’ve been talking a lot about productivity. But it’s not just because we want people making long lists and checking them off. It’s because we want to have the freedom and peace that comes from having a clear mind—so that we can truly enjoy the holiday season and time with family!
At our recent team retreat, we loved the opportunity to connect and share ideas about how do this in our own homes and families, and we’re excited to share these perspectives with you!
Isn’t this fun? Meet our team: Danielle, Taryn, Jill, Kristen, and April!
Here are just a few ideas to get you thinking about how you can balance enjoying the season while still not letting anything slip through the cracks.
1 – Have a conversation with your family.
Before “planning everything,” we want to make sure we understand the needs, wishes, preferences, and ideas of our family members. This is also a great time to figure out who wants to do what, so we can all share the responsibilities associated with the holidays.
2 – Schedule the “Must Dos”.
There are a lot of optional tasks and projects that may pop up, but if the REALLY important events, purchases, and tasks are on your calendar, you can breathe easy knowing that it’s okay if all the “extras” don’t get done–because the most important things WILL.
3 – Give yourself as much white space as possible.
No one wants to end the year with a meltdown, but sometimes our energy gets poured into so many different areas that we feel we have zero time to just “be.” The good news is that WE get to choose how to schedule our time, and it’s totally possible to create space that can be the source of so much joy.
QUESTION: What things make your holidays feel like a success? What things feel like they might be too much for this season?
CHALLENGE: Add essential events, purchases and events for this season to your calendar.
Our goal is for everyone to really enjoy the holidays and be able to look back on the precious memories we’ve created, but not have anything slip through the cracks in the process.
