That time of year is upon us and it’s busy, it’s overwhelming and for many of us it doesn’t necessarily feel like the overwhelm fits in with our ordinary slow lives. It’s me, I am the one I am talking about.
Now don’t get me wrong, I love Christmas but it is a lot, and every year I sacrifice myself and push myself to create Christmas, but the funny thing is, was that I didn’t even know I was doing it. It was just the norm and just what happened this time of year, right?
Contrary to popular belief, Christmas doesn’t have to be any more stressful or overwhelming than the rest of the year, in fact, Christmas can be exactly what you want it to be. And it can definitely be the slow and simple Christmas season that you desire.
This season is full of consumerism, which is designed to keep us busy and spending money. You don’t have to do anything that you don’t feels serves you or your family. Not the gift giving, not the christmas events, not having to provide the perfect, magical christmas experience for your children. You can chose how you celebrate and can opt out of anything that doesn’t serve you.
