Focus on the simple things in life that bring you the greatest joy and happiness!

Focus on the quality rather than the quantity of holiday events

Avoid overextending your holiday “to do” list

Enjoy a sunset, sit by the fire, take time to relax

Enjoy the love and companionship of family and friends

Savor holiday aromas

Be mindful of seasonal sights and sounds

Take time to appreciate children laughing and playing
