Today is Christmas and the 9th day of Santa’s tips for celebrating the holidays. It’s entitled, “Breathe” – Yogi Santa (image below) encourages you to relax and breathe in the midst of the frenzy and festivities of the season. (And while you say you don’t have time, taking a yoga class or two will help you with the whole breathing thing)
Number #4 in Santa’s Tips for Celebrating Christmas is- Go on Vacation – Ok, so this idea may be far from traditional, but sometimes you might just need to use the holiday season as an opportunity to take a much needed vacation. Even if Christmas is about family, sometimes one needs a break from family. Going away provides just such an excuse.
This is day 3 of Santa’s 12 Tips for Celebrating Christmas. Tip for the day- Do Traditional Things- Trim a “real tree” not an artificial one. It helps make the holiday more authentic. It can be a bit of a pain wrestling the tree into its stand and making sure it stays upright. Real trees certainly have their share of imperfections, but they can serve as a reminder that things aren’t supposed to be perfect. Besides, they smell so good.
