Our jobs, our routines, our schedules are what keep us moving most of the year, but at Christmas-time we usually get a bit of reprieve from our rigorous schedules. This year I have a true winter recess, now that I work at a university, but Aaron has to work Christmas Eve. To balance it, we’ve put together some fun activities on our common days off. We’ll do wrapping together one day, and go on a little hot chocolate date another. After the holiday, we’re heading to New York City to celebrate the New Year!
Prompt: Whether it’s your time off or your family’s, the holiday vacation is limited. How can you make the time off feel more meaningful and restorative for you and your family? Maybe there are activities you can give up, to make the holiday feel more relaxing. Be creative.
