December and the Holidays are officially here in full force and the “do it all” person in me tends to push December to the max. I feel like I need to do it all, be all the places, work the hardest, give all the gifts and ultimately end up really burning myself out! I think we can all really feel maxed out at Christmas (especially the mamas out there!) But this year I’m honestly thankful for a slower Christmas season. Maybe this Christmas we can all take a little pressure off and have fun this Christmas! My #1 intention this month is to have fun!
I’m definitely going to miss the big gatherings and seeing all the friends and family, but I also think every now and again it’s nice to have some slow seasons. More nights on the couch watching Christmas movies. More time at home with your favorite people. Smaller gatherings, less gifts, less running around. It’s kinda nice.
Extra Katie is trying to channel simple Katie and I’m feeling pretty good about it honestly. If you’re someone who puts a lot of pressure on trying to do it all and do it all THE BEST. Let’s all just take it easy this month! That doesn’t mean give it all up, I just mean, take a little pressure off. Let’s HAVE FUN this Christmas! Don’t worry about doing it all and doing it perfectly and to the max. Let’s all just enjoy this Christmas season!
Happy December! Let’s have some fun!
