Let’s face it, Christmas can be a bumpy, one horse, open-sleigh ride. One minute you’re all calm and bright sipping hot cocoa watching a Hallmark holiday movie, the next minute you’re being Manheim-Steamrollered at Costco.
I have found that creating a ‘serenity zone,’ a time and place where I can retreat at least once a day, helps keep my HO HO HO from turning into OH OH OH. I hang out in my zone early in the morning while “the house” is still sleeping so I can organize my thoughts, settle my soul and set the tone for my day.
And oh yes, you’ll know when time’s up.. 😉
