Two days out from Christmas, just how many jobs do you have on your “to do” list?
If you’re hosting Christmas dinner this year, you are probably still getting the house in order.
Some work in the yard to have your gardens looking their best, plus a complete clean inside before the guests arrive.
If you haven’t hit the shops yet, strap yourself in – it’s tough out there. Then when you’re back home, set aside few hours in the kitchen to make the magic happen.
If you’re travelling for Christmas, I hope you’ve done your packing. Good luck getting all the bags, gifts and kids in the car – and good luck battling the traffic.
By 9pm on Christmas night, we’ll all be ready to crash into bed, wondering where the past few days have gone.
And so the one thing we could all use this Christmas is time. More time with family, more time to relax.
Too often this season of peace and goodwill has become a season of hustle and bustle.
Instead of winding down and reflecting on the year gone by, we’re running faster and faster in circles to get a longer and longer list of jobs completed in time for Christmas.
Do yourself a favour this Christmas – just stop. Take a break, sit down and talk to your loved ones.
Appreciate the moment, celebrate simplicity.
You’ll thank yourself for it later.
