Are you so busy making lists and checking them twice that you can’t fully enjoy the holidays? With so much to do and so little time, it’s very easy to turn into a holiday robot. Let’s all try to make more time to get out and be with the people we care about and not let time-hoggers, such as shopping and decorating, get in our way. Let’s make it the season where less is more!
#1 – Holiday Shopping Made Easier
With the help of your smartphone and some great apps, you can make your holiday shopping easier and have more time to spend with your friends. Check out this Yahoo! News review of apps and see which ones will make your life easier. Some of them are even free!
#2 – Words That Rhyme
“Twas the night before Christmas and all through our house, not a person was snoring, not even my spouse . . . .” Whether you’re penning your own words to a classic Christmas jingle for your holiday newsletter or writing a love poem for Valentine’s Day, you’ll be pleased to know that there’s a site that can help you rhyme your words. Just type your text into the box, option-click on a specific word, and Write Rhymes will provide you with a list of rhyming words. How easy-peasey is that?!
#3 – Free Holiday Printables
Another year, another link to free holiday printables. With these downloadable printables, anything goes! Save time and shopping trips by printing up gift tags, cards, decorative paper, gift boxes, place cards, jar labels, wish lists, etc., all from the comfort of your home.
#4 – Words to Live By
The holiday season provides many opportunities to eat sweet and delicious foods, but take time to ingest some food for thought, too. Watch this one-minute video of the Holstee Manifesto:
#5 – Sense of Self
“Figure out who you are separate from your family, and the man or woman you’re in a relationship with. Find who you are in this world and what you need to feel good alone. I think that’s the most important thing in life. Find a sense of self because with that, you can do anything else.” Angelina Jolie
Enjoy your weekend!
