Doesn’t it seem that the holiday season descended upon us out of nowhere this year? All of a sudden there are decorations and holiday sales everywhere! I don’t know about you but I feel as if I missed a month this fall and that it should still be Halloween time.With that being said, I recently declared to my family that we will be having a “Zen Christmas” this year. After receiving the usual eye rolls from my daughters and the snarky smile from my husband I explained my brilliant idea. A Zen Christmas would mean that we would deliberately choose what is meaningful and enjoyable to do instead of getting swept up by the societal pressures of enforced traditions and obligations. In other words, less mess and more fun!
So instead of getting stressed out trying to make my home look like a gingerbread house or exhausting myself trying to take the perfect holiday photo, or bake the perfect cookies, this month I will be chillin’. That’s right the Bradley Zen Christmas Season has officially begun. No pressure, no fuss and lots and lots of ease and joy! (check back with me on Dec 23rd!)
Perhaps you and your family will join us this season as we relax and drink in the peace and magic that the holidays can offer us all.
