How to Get in the Holiday Spirit

In case you are trying to get in the holiday spirit, here are some ways that I am working on:
  • Shop early
  • Don't skip workouts.
  • Wish people that you meet a happy holiday with a smile.
  • Drop spare coins in the Salvation Army collection buckets.
  • Do something nice for someone.
  • Volunteer your time to a worthy holiday cause.
  • Organize a drive at work to collect food and personal items and donate them
  • Don't skip workouts.
  • Play Christmas music.
  • Watch "It's a Wonderful Life"
  • Think about what you'd like Christmas to mean and how you can work towards that goal.
  • Be Inspired by Traditions.
  • Don't skip workouts.
  • Bake cookies and cupcakes
  • Make a new tradition
  • Make a Christmas CD
  • Throw a holiday party.
  • Don't skip workouts.
  • Go see a Christmas play
“I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys.” ~Charles Dickens

“I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.” ~Charles Dickens
