For many people end of year Holidays bring both joy and stress. With all the great activities conducted during this season, we have come to associate it with gift swamping—and for many folks this can be a stressful experience. It is stressful to go through the list of what to get for whom and then the guilt after missing someone.

It’s of paramount importance to remember that a Holiday season shouldn’t leave you stressed out. A special gift to yourself could include sleeping enough; exercise, reflections of your past and how it relates to the future you envision; learning something new; saying no to what may negatively interfere with your goals; and setting achievable goals. And most importantly strengthening your spiritual standing.

Here are Top 7 Tips for Finding Fulfillment During the Holidays:

  1. Go to a restaurant and check for a table with senior citizens and anonymously pay for their meal

  2. Visit someone (not a relative) who is home sick

  3. Take a veteran out for lunch

  4. Pay and have pizza delivered for firefighters, police or paramedics anonymously

  5. Share your talents with young people, especially those with mental or physical challenges

  6. Cook and/or serve a meal at a homeless shelter or soup kitchen facility

  7. Visit people who: have lost loved ones; have lost their jobs and those with other needs

    Bonus Tips:

    o) Write a thank you note or an encouragement piece to someone who is not expecting you to

    o) Call someone who helped your personal or professional endeavors and thank them for their contribution
