Make It Fun and Easy
Do whatever you can for yourself and those around you to make the planning, food preparation, cleanup and whole Thanksgiving experience as easy, fun and stress-free as possible. This means we keep it light, share the responsibilities, ask others for help and do the things that we enjoy—instead of burdening ourselves and feeling like a victim. Too often we waste our time and energy being uptight, doing things we don't truly want to do, feeling resentful toward others and creating a lot of unnecessary stress and frustration. Thanksgiving can be lots of fun—if we're willing to go with the flow and make it easy on ourselves and others.
