Don't give into the giving

It's week 4 of the Holiday Survival series, and if you're not feeling the holiday crunch by now, you're likely a hermit. Or you're completely balanced and have this whole thing figured out way better than I do! Either way, here we go... Giving. Seemingly the central ingredient in your holiday stew. But why? How did we get here? This can't really be what the holidays are about!

You're right, it's not! But we perpetuate the cycle by giving in to the giving.

The holidays are a time for us to appreciate and recognize the ones we love. Think about who you want to spend the holidays with - likely the people you care about most.

So how do you show them how much they mean to you? {insert ridiculously expensive mall purchase here}

No! Don't do it! Give your love instead!

But if that's not enough for your 6 year-old or partner, at least add a sweet note or card :)

Watch this week's video to learn to give love and give without expectation- the most authentic form of giving.
