I have a confession to make. I have a hard time around the holidays. I have realized that many of you have a hard time as well. The holidays just aren’t as festive as Christmas Commercials lead us to believe.

So the real question is; how do you get through it gracefully? Here’s what I do.
1. Breathe.
2. Be thankful for what you have. I know this is so played out but it is true. If you take the time to be thankful for what we have we’ll realize that have some wonderful people and things and situations in our lives.
3. Give yourself some extra pampering. Go get a massage or take a hot bubble bath. Have that piece of chocolate or that cup of chocolate with a big ole marshmallow on top.
4. Concentrate on happy things. The more you dwell on sadness, the more sadness you get. The more you think on happiness the more happiness you get.

Let’s hang in there and make it through this festive season together.
