Create a Meaningful Christmas By Doing These 4 Things

Ahhhh Christmas!!! If you haven’t noticed, I LOVE Christmas. Like.. I may or may not listen to Christmas music year round type of love 😂😂 Stepping into the Christmas season is like a breath of fresh air. There’s something about each twinkly light and every sip of hot tea by the Christmas tree that absolutely refreshes my soul. Have you ever gotten to the end of this season and realized that you didn’t stop to truly cherish it?

Manage your schedule

S L O W it down sista! It seems like no matter what you do, there is a LOT going on in the month of December. Don’t let your schedule just happen to you! Say yes to the things you truly want to do and say no to what you don’t.

Embrace the Christmas story  

And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.

John 1:14

Yes, we’ve all heard about Jesus born in a manger, but take the time to truly read and pray through the scriptures of Jesus’ birth! Make it real for your whole family by doing age appropriate activities with your kiddos. There are soooo many amazing Christmas board books! Check out these cute stories here and here (affiliate).  

Stop and smell the peppermint!

Enjoyyyy, momma! I mean truly stop to *enjoy* the season! The sights, the smells, the feels. Choose mindfulness over busyness.  Family Christmas light walks, dancing to Christmas music, sipping cocoa by the tree. Don’t be afraid to be allll the extra as you soak up the beauty of Christmas ;)

Rest well

Avoid holiday burnout! Neglecting self care, rest, and nutrition is allllll too easy to do during a month full of festivities. Prioritize YOU. No one can rest for you, momma! Practice some self care by making this DIY peppermint scrub!

There you have it, momma! I want to hear all about how you’re keeping the Christmas special!!

Hop on over to Instagram and tell me all about it!

Wishing you a truly peace filled Christmas season!
