How To Beat The Holiday Bah Humbug

To beat the holiday bah humbug you need to surround yourself with the things you love about the holidays. Once you’ve done that I’ll show you how to use them to make things better.

Make a list of your happy holiday memories

Write as many down as you can think of. Consider family gatherings, gifts exchanged, cookies enjoyed, stockings opened and holiday entertainment you love. Keep the list handy in your phone or a notebook in your purse or wallet.

When you begin to feel the holiday bah humbug or the stress of preparing for the holiday bring out your list and choose one memory. Fill your mind with that memory and envision yourself in it. See the people, the sights, the smells, and sounds of that memory. Now make the memory even bigger and brighter. Most likely you will feel yourself getting lighter and happier as you begin to relive that wonderful time.

Success, you’ve chased the bah humbug away. Repeat this step any time holiday stress begins to take over, choosing any memory you like.

Create a holiday playlist of your favorite holiday songs

Music has a powerful way of changing our mood. Use this playlist to accompany your holiday preparations. Hearing your favorite songs will get you singing along and help keep the bah humbug away. Don’t forget to explore some new holiday music as well. Pandora is a great place to create a radio station of your favorites and hear some new songs as well, as Pandora offers song suggestions based on your preferences.

Pull out your favorite holiday movies/specials

There are so many good ones to choose from. Add some holiday show time to your schedule. We have family movie night once a week and as the holidays approach, we fill this slot with our holiday favorites.

Since you’ve seen these shows so many times, consider watching them while filling out your holiday cards or perform other holiday preparations. (I love to put on the Grinch Who Stole Christmas movie while we decorate the tree)

Don’t forget to treat yourself to some downtime during the holiday season as well. Schedule a massage, take a few baths, get your favorite seasonal beverage (eggnog or Candy Cane Lane tea anyone?).
