The Reason For The Season
Two more sleeps! I don't know about you guys, but Christmas creeped up on me this year. I'm still not done with all of my shopping, and I haven't even started wrapping gifts (insert wide-eyed emoji here). It's so easy to get wrapped up in our to-do lists and stress about the little things this time of year. I've been very guilty of this, specifically this week. I work in the engineering/architecture industry, and this tends to be our busy season. We always have lots of deadlines before the end of the year to get ready for construction in the Spring. I knew on Monday I was headed into a stressful week, so to offset some of that stress I decided to listen to Christmas music while working at my desk. Music can be a powerful thing, it can have a strong affect on our mood. I found day after day that these Christmas songs helped keep my head and my heart focused on what's really important. I made a playlist of my favorite tracks from this week. I promise these aren't the kind of Christmas songs that have been overplayed in the stores or on the radio. Listen to it on your drive, while cooking or cleaning, or wrapping gifts. Hopefully this helps you remember the reason for the season - enjoy!
