Common Sense: Happy Holidays?
November 20, 2013
I’m a firm believer that the reason most people are crabby, ornery, impatient and rude at this time of year is that they have forgotten that there is 24 hours in a day — no more! Seven to eight of those hours should be used to rejuvenate the mind and body and an hour and a half should be used to fuel it (if not more). That leaves 14 to 15 hours to do the “to do” list.
Common sense tells me that simplifying life makes us happier. So the question is: why, at this time of year, do we purposely add stress to our lives and make ourselves into witches, scrooges and /or grumps???
That common sense card should definitely be used to get rest, eat right and simplify our lives — and schedules. Next time you’re out in the “holiday bustle,” wish someone a “Happy Hanukkah,” “Merry Christmas,” “Happy Holidays” or “Happy New Year.” It might put a smile on their face and remind them what the season is all about or it might just irritate them more. Either way, you will feel good that you carry a common sense card!
