Warm fuzzy socks, a cup of hot chocolate and a nice, cozy bed. Those are my comforts of the holidays. Just saying the words conjures up images in my head that immediately leave me feeling a little less stressed.
We all know the holidays can get a tad bit out of hand. Between parties that happen in school, work and the neighborhood, all of which require cookies to be baked, it’s hard to keep feeling festive. Add on the pile of presents you’re supposed to find that are perfect but can’t figure out how you’ll pay for, and you can easily become grouchy like the Grinch, instead of sweet like Cindy-Lou Who.
Every year I say I’m going to start shopping in October so that the holidays can be about relaxing with friends. And every year Thanksgiving gets here and the gifts have yet to be purchased. That’s just the way it is. And so it goes, the holiday has already beaten me down before December even shows up on the calendar.
So this year, I’m giving myself permission to find a little more comfort and a lot less pain. I want to be able to relax and enjoy the holidays, even if it means the cookies are store bought, or the presents are not perfect. The holidays are supposed to be about being with family, appreciating the blessings in our lives and making the most of our time together. You can’t do all of that if you’re running around like crazy trying to please too many people. This year, please yourself. Do what I’m going to do. When it gets overwhelming, just grab your fuzziest socks and warm up your feet. Fix yourself a nice cup of hot chocolate (and put a little whipped cream on top!). And crawl into that cozy bed of yours, grab the ones who make you smile most and cuddle your way through the holidays. Those are the comforts I’m counting on most.
Comfort is the perfect gift for everyone on your holiday gift list, so be sure to take advantage of Tempur-Pedic’s Buy 2, get 1 free pillow offer! I was selected for this sponsorship by the Clever Girls Collective.
