Being thankful during thanksgiving weekend is just as prevalent as the craziness of Black Friday, which has become a mixture of service and fighting the crowds to get the best deal. Planning for your holiday shopping in advance will help you have and we want to give you some tips to help you do that.
Think about this. It's Thanksgiving weekend and all of the stressful Thanksgiving thoughts are taking over.
STOP! You can't kill yourself worrying about everything that may or may not go well. Thinking like this is not helpful or healthy.
Take the Friday before Thanksgiving - this year, November 22 - to relax, declutter your mind and give yourself a clean slate.
Here are a few tips for you to spend part of the day:
Don't be alarmed if cleaning your closet leads to uncontrollable laughter and increased recollection of great memories you had in your life. If you notice prolonged smiling and uninvited thoughts of gratitude, please consult a loved one so that these symptoms can be spread to the people that are close to you. Other side effects may include randomly hugging people, a general feeling of fulfillment, and one or more sighs of relief.
Now that you have a different perspective on things, let's go back to your pre-thanksgiving preparations. Here are some new, positive thoughts to replace the negativity from earlier.
To finish off our recommendations, here is one more quote from the amazing Mr. Rogers “It’s not so much what we have in this life that matters. It’s what we do with what we have.” Use the day before thanksgiving to remember what is important and be grateful for what you have. We would love to see what else you could come up with to give yourself a clean slate.
