Where’s the Joy in that?
Ok, before the month goes on any further, stop, take a break, and breathe. I have to ask if you’re already feeling stressed; who or why are you doing what you’re doing? Are you doing it for the family? Your parents? A work party? If you don’t love it, then why do it? And what kind of energy does that bring into the season-low vibrational energy. UGH!

First, let someone know the holiday baking, decorating, shopping, or whatever isn’t your thing. If they love it, maybe they can host, bake or shop.

Here are a Few Tips to Get You’re Happy On
Remember your personality type is entangled into the physical senses so if you’re feeling stressed, exhausted, or overwhelmed you probably have a trait that’s out of balance. Here’s a helpful blog post on the topic.
The tips below are intended to help you untangle yourself from the physical senses; the pressures, the fixations, the urges of perfection. If you want to keep your energy positive, then you have to do things for yourself that make you feel good. And remember overdoing is so 2020. Hope you find these tips uber useful.
1. Know Your Awesome Personality Type
If you don’t know how awesome your personality type is and what tasks you can seamlessly perform, go back and read; Know How Awesome Your Personality Type Is – after you’ve read this post, of course. Knock out the tasks you can do easily and move on to the next. This way, you’ll feel good about yourself, as you’ve already accomplished a thing or two.
2. Get off the Internet
We’ve all come to realize online posts are typically staged and unreal for the most part. I don’t know about you, but I don’t have access to Nate Burkas and his team of merry elves to decorate my house. Do you? So don’t stress. Do the best you can and leave the rest.
3. Take a Day Off.
Come on, and I know you have a ton of paid sick days, and who knows, you may even get sick if you don’t take some “me time.” It’s exactly what you need!
4. Sing and Dance Your Way into the Season
Put on your favorite holiday tunes or Christmas movie to get you into the season. Dance, laugh and remember as a child how much you looked forward to Christmas Day or another time when you felt absolute joy. Feel into it, and keep it close to you as you go through the season.
5. Do Something for Someone Else
Yes, I know you’re busy, but random acts of kindness increase dopamine levels and your mood. Check. Check.
6. Feeling out of Control, Stop and Breathe
When you take three consecutive deep breaths, it begins to alleviate stress. Easy – peasy, no gym, pills, or booze – just deep breathing to a happier you!
7. Go for a Walk
If weather permits, go for a walk. Did you know walking can and does curb carbohydrate cravings; chocolate, cookies, and a bevy of holiday treats waiting to tempt you. So talk a walk, curb your cravings and feel better.
8. Be Screen Free
Be screen-free for an entire evening; no phone, computer, or TV. Take this time to curl up with a cup of tea or hot apple cider and grab the book you’ve wanted to read, or open up the crisp pages of a new magazine and savor this quiet time. Yes, after the kids go to bed. And think, no obnoxious pop-up ads to distract you. An extra bonus!
9. Ask for Help!
If you’re like me, I don’t ask for help, and then I’m exhausted as I’ve done everything. Remember, people don’t read minds, so ask for what you need.
10. Make Time for Family
So you didn’t bake seven varieties of cookies. What’s important is you took time to be with family—quality time, playing board games, looking at old photos, or enjoying a date night with your hubby/wife. The season is meant for gatherings, joy, and frivolity, something we could all use right now!
