No one likes a Grinch…especially this time of year, with everything going on I know its easy to get caught up in a pity party. No jobs, isolation and a global pandemic try your best not to feel totally down about the Holidays this year. Here are some tips on how to stay away from the slump this year.
Tip 1: Get out of the house – I know we are in isolation however, take a walk outside. The weather has a great way of making you feel the season. Its great to feel the crisp winter air on your cheeks.
Tip 2: Get a scented candle or air freshner – Dont you just love walking into your home and it smelling like a Merry Mimosa or Marshmello Heaven! This is such an easy tip. Get a seasonal scented candle. It makes it easy to want to get festive when it smells like your mom is making her famous Christmas Cookies in the kitchen. My suggestion is Bath & Body works. There 3 wick candles and wallflowers are amazing but they are very very strong. If you have allergies suggestion- Scentsy Berry and Bright is great.
Tip 3: Go Christmas Decoration Hunting – There is an App for that, if you can believe it! Since so many people are at home this year the Christmas decoration are out of sight this year! Just drive around and hunt them down! Take a late night trip with your significant other and bring some snacks along for the ride!
Tip 4: Fake Fireplace – If you dont really want to decorate this year here is a great way to get cozy. This fireplace ranges in sizes. I have a tiny condo so I bought the smallest one, and let me tell you it brings the holiday cheer without having to fuss with a ton of decorations. Hang your stocking around it and Wal-lha, Feeling FESTIVE!
Tip 5: Bake cookies – When I say bake I mean, go grab the Pilsbury kind thats in the refrigerator section. Already made dough, in ‘cutouts’ with Holiday shapes is an easy activity to do. Grab some cream cheese white frosting, food dye, and invite all your friends (well the entire 10 people you are legally allowed to have in your home) over for a cookie decorating and exchange.
