Holiday Spirit Every Day

It is no secret that 2020 has been the hardest year for a lot of people. In an earlier post, I talked about how people started decorating for the holidays early to introduce some positivity into our lives for longer. Now, I want to give you some tips on how to keep the holiday spirit going, since we have not experienced enough merriness this year.How to Keep the Holiday Spirit Going

One way to keep the positivity in our lives is simple: keeping our environment joyful and warm. This could look like keeping your Christmas lights lit, continuing to light candles, and playing wholesome movies. This is setting yourself up for success.

When your environment is welcoming and encouraging, you will feel invited into the space.

Another way to keep the holiday spirit going is by doing acts of kindness. The holiday time is the most controversial. For some, it is the best time of the year and for others, it is the worst. That is why it is especially important to show kindness to others during this season. We do things for others to bring joy to another person, and to experience the fulfillment of doing something good for another person. An example of this could be delivering a basket of baked goodies to a neighbor or buying an impromptu gift for a friend.How to Keep the Holiday Spirit Going

Lastly, in order to keep the holiday spirit going, one must accept that it is an attitude. We have the power to be resilient to change and choose positivity over pity. The holiday attitude favors family and cherished memories, not dwelling on old hurts and “what ifs”. The holiday attitude focuses on the present gratitudes and future hopes.

To keep the holiday spirit going, we must daily pick up the attitude of joy.

Let me know what you did for the holidays and how you plan to continue in the holiday spirit! Check out these items that might help you do so!

About the author: Mikayla Stiff

I am a college student in Los Angeles studying Screenwriting at Biola University. Storytelling is my passion. The best part about it is that it can be done with all sorts of mediums of expression! I love to tell stories through writing and dancing. Growing up overseas in Guatemala and Spain has given me a greater understanding of the world, as well as a love for travel and exploring. I find that I am most inspired when I am in a new place. I believe that every person and place has a story that is worth telling. As an intern for HBM, I am excited to exercise my writing and showcase my work! I hope to inspire others to share their story through platforms such as this one.
Let's be friends!
