It’s Christmas Time! 🙂 And today I really do not want to think of OCD and I will not write about it. Today is a day that we should spend with our loved ones and enjoy life.
So what should be your plan for today? 🙂
1. Spend time with your loved ones!
Now because of our stressful lives: work, money, anxiety disorders and other issues, we often forget what is truly important: the people that we love. Obviously, we should spend time with our loved ones and take care of them throughout the whole year, but Christmas is a perfect opportunity to tell them how much you love them.
2. Do not stress!
A nice Christmas meal and gifts are important to many of us, but they are not the only thing that matter. So do not stress too much over the presents and the Christmas dinner: just enjoy yourself!
3. Eat a lot!
I am a perfectionist and sometimes I do worry about gaining weight but then we should forget that on Christmas day. 🙂 This is one of our traditional Christmas meals:

4. The biggest gift is being surrounded by the people you love!
I totally a hundred percent adore giving and receiving gifts, but again: do not stress over presents, it’s much more important to enjoy being with your loved ones.
Interesting fact: in my country, it is not Santa Claus who’s bringing us the gifts, but we have 2 other gift bringers: Baby Jesus or the Angel (depends on which part of the country you’re coming from). In our family, it’s the Angel 🙂
5. Admire the beautiful Christmas decorations!
Christmas markets and lights are just amazing: every city, town and village looks absolutely magical on Christmas day (or in most of the cases, throughout the whole month to be honest). So spend some time on enjoying the fantastic atmosphere! 🙂
For example, this is where I live:
So, Merry Christmas to all of you and please do not hesitate to share your thoughts in the comment section. Because as you know there’s one thing I enjoy more than writing my own stories: reading yours.
