Family is the centerpiece of the holidays. This holiday season take a little bit of extra time to connect with all of the special people in your life. One meaningful way to be present in the moment and connected with your family is to start, or continue, family traditions.

Every family has unique traditions but here are some we love:

  • Bake an experimental dessert (along side the classics of course). Make a mess and maybe find a new favorite!
  • Post turkey eating, go for a winter walk or dance down the beach with some hot cocoa or hot apple cider.
  • Volunteer at a local soup kitchen and serve Thanksgiving meals before enjoying your own. After all giving and gratitude are the keys of Thanksgiving.

Whatever tradition you choose to carry forward or choose to create, take moment to take a deep breath, smile and be grateful for all the love we have in our lives!
