To happily splash through the Christmas holiday without a care in the world, takes some serious planning. It makes sense to have a strategy to implement during this heightened emotional time of year. If you want to be prepared for the family gatherings, monitoring your unproductive habits of complaining is a great place to start. Begin now – if you’re one who complains.
Early preparation is like knowing where the emergency exits were during a fire drill in elementary school. If you knew where they were – even if you were away from your classroom at the sound of the alarm- what you’d learned about fire safety would kick in, and you knew exactly where to go. You’d find the exit and join the mandatory, “single-file” line out-side in the safe zone.
Course of Action
Translation: Anticipating family confrontations and having a course of action can prevent you from overreacting to something said by a family member, or from saying something hurtful. If you decide to practice controlling your emotions, work on not taking things personally, and monitor your thoughts and words, Christmas won’t include loud arguments, nor will a disagreement result in fisticuffs.
