A Less Stress Holiday
As Christmas is upon us this week, many of you may be feeling the sting or stress of all the presents you have bought or still need to buy. Sometimes, the stress of the holidays can lead people to not truly enjoy this time of year with their friends and family. In order to re-gain the spirit and the purpose of the holiday season, more and more American’s are aiming for a more minimalistic approach this holiday season. Many are spending less on gifts and more on quality time together. Those leaning towards a more minimalistic lifestyle this holiday are in essence, eliminating stress and anxiety that can be suffocating for many this time of year. Weston Dean Custom homes, a premier New Braunfels
custom home builder, shares why this approach might save your holiday spirit in years to come.
Minimalism when it comes to holiday gifts represents a budding movement that results in fewer possessions and relies more on what people deem most important. Many buyers this holiday season are being more mindful of their budget, to avoid the dreaded holiday debt come January 1. Easy was to incorporate a more minimalistic holiday is to buy gifts people want or need, and just one or fewer than normal. Changing the mindset of having the focus not be on opening gifts, but on spending time together, can truly improve your holidays overall.
This holiday season or for holidays to come, consider taking a more minimalist approach. A trend going around for kids and their parents this holiday is getting kids lesser, more mindful gifts. These are things such as a book to read, a want they have and a need they have.
It is hard to break the tradition when buying several gifts might be in your routine each holiday. However, the idea of giving your family one or few gifts they need, opposed to mindless “stuff,” allows you to break the history of buying unnecessary things and put that money to a greater cause.
Taking on a lesser spending and gift-giving approach to the holiday can be the sigh of relief and bonding gift your family can learn from for years to come.
