The holidays provide us with a great time to enjoy family and friends, and if we play our cards right, they can be remembered as a joyful, harmonious and relaxing time by everyone. If this year finds you experiencing some winter doldrums, this advice should revitalize your bah humbug spirit!
Quick Tips for Happier Holidays
- List three things you would like, or would like to accomplish, in 2005. Then for each, write three steps that will bring your wish closer.
- Let a driver make a turn while you wait. Smile and wave!
- Donate to a charity whose work you genuinely admire. Giving really is better than receiving—really!
- Let somebody else get on the escalator, off the elevator, through the grocery line, first.
