5 Tips for a Great Thanksgiving
How to have the holiday celebration you really want . . . Learn more >>
There are lots of ways to have a satisfying Thanksgiving. (Yes, more than just eating an extra slice of pie or cheering your favorite football team to victory.) If you want your satisfaction with the holiday to last longer than your after-dinner nap, use these five tips to help you create closer connections with family and friends, and make a day to remember.
- Have the holiday you want. Decide that this will be a Thanksgiving to remember, and make plans accordingly. Maybe it means doing Thanksgiving Day a little differently. You may want to spend it with someone new, invite family and friends to your house, make reservations at a nice restaurant, or spend time as a family serving dinner at a homeless shelter. Regardless of where you spend Thanksgiving, remember that you can create beauty and bring meaning to any setting. Itís yours to create.
- Make at least one meaningful connection. You donít have to turn your holiday upside down to have it feel more special, but one great conversation can go a long way. Pick someone to connect more deeply withóask them more about themselves, what challenges they are facing, what their dreams are. Or share yourself more fully with someone you know.
- Create a new tradition. A lot of times we think holiday traditions are set in stone, but one of the great things about traditions is that you can start a new one any time. Maybe you start a tradition of going for a walk after the big meal, playing touch football outside, or having everyone say something they are grateful for. Creating a new tradition can be fun and can bring a fresh perspective to your routine. And you donít need to do it alone, ask your guests or families for their ideas.
- Shift your perspective on Thanksgiving preparations. If we donít watch ourselves, it can be easy to feel resentful about our big holiday preparations. Make a choice that you will not be a victim to your holiday and see what happens. Remember the people that you are preparing foróthink about what you appreciate about them. At the same time, see if you can find ways to make your tasks fun by doing them more quickly, differently, or sharing them with others who might not normally help.
- Get in touch with your real hungers. Itís no accident Thanksgiving is the holiday we associate with overeating. Itís because weíre hungry Ė for connection and intimacy. Sadly, we all too often fill up on food rather than seeking out the personal connections we truly desire. In the end itís your choice to seek aliveness and intimacy.
