Build traditions that work for you, not against you
As a whole, traditions are great, right? They’re a big part of the holidays and human life in general, helping us feel connected to previous generations and nice memories.
But individually, well, they can be a bit restrictive, can’t they? And many aren’t at all healthy, are they?
Do you really want to keep dressing formally just because it is what your family has always done?
And what about eating too much every year because our culture seems to prioritize it? Or drinking too much because you always did before… and then spending all day after the big meal collapsed on the couch…
See? Just because your family might’ve done something every year, that doesn’t mean you can’t discard it, amend it, or create something to replace it.
And since this year’s going to be different anyway, given the pandemic, why not look for ways to build new, healthy traditions of your own? It’ll be fun, and a great way to help friends and family get creative, too.
Here are a few ideas to get you thinking!
Keep an open mind and allow for spontaneity and even “error,” since the best ideas are often happy accidents. Hold the past gently with one hand while reaching out to the future with a loving touch. That’s a tradition we can all start every day.
