Good Juju Tip #11 for a Happy Holiday Season

Standard

Tis the season to give and receive.

Send a thank-you note. You know, it’s nice to get a little note thanking you for something you did. You don’t need to send someone a formal thank-you card (although that’s a nice touch), but just a little note (or email) saying thank you for a specific thing the person has done for you can go a long way. And it only takes a minute!

Good Juju Tip #9 for a Happy Holiday Season

Standard

The holidays are all about showing others how special they are to us.  Today’s tip of the day comes from Zen Habits.

Give a free hug.  OK, only do this when appropriate … but if you have a loved one in your life, give them a hug! Often we can go too long without showing our affection and gratitude, even to those who are closest to us. Don’t neglect this important part of your relationship. By “free” hug, I mean don’t expect anything in return — just give it as a gift of gratitude. If you give a hug to a stranger, be prepared to run very fast afterward.

Good Juju Tip #8 for a Happy Holiday Season

Standard

Keep expectations realistic. Don’t expect the holidays to be perfect or even the same as they were last year. As families change and grow, treasured traditions may need to change, too. Talk with loved ones about which traditions to keep and be open to creating new ones. If, for example, some relatives can’t come to your home, find new ways to celebrate with them across the miles, such as sharing photos and videos or communicating via Skype.

Good Juju Tip #4 for a Happy Holiday Season

Standard

The following holiday tip comes from Carole Brody Fleet.

Treat yourself. Visit a cosmetic counter and try a mini-makeover, which you can generally do free of charge. Book a single spa treatment; this also need not be expensive. Take yourself out to a lovely lunch or quiet dinner at your favorite restaurant or bistro — you really do deserve it.
