It seems like we have all been adjusting to things this year. From online work, school, and social encounters; it has been challenging to find ways to keep ourselves up to date and connected and it can be difficult to figure out what to do over the holidays. This holiday season will likely continue to be in need of creativity regarding getting into the spirit and making it feel special. Below are some suggestions for helping us get started and keeping our Grinch at bay.
Keep active – as the weather gets colder, it can be difficult to convince yourself to go outside and get some exercise. Consider alternatives such as walking in a shopping mall. Leave your wallet in the car and do some laps while you window shop. Youtube and Tik Tok have great videos from subscribers on how to keep active in your home and participation is always welcome.
