The Christmas holiday is a season where people dash and rush to be somewhere or buy something. It is evident that once the month of December arrives, people come and go in the mall and beat the rush hour traffic to be at home in time for dinner. Few hours before Christmas eve me and my hubby went out to buy get the food we ordered from the caterer. We observed that there are people who drove as fast as they are allowed to maybe to have their rush Christmas shopping or just to be present in homes of parents, relatives, and friends in another city. At one juncture in the busy intersection of the city, there was a motor accident which made the traffic more heavier ( a very ironic one – a police patrol car was able to hit a single motor vehicle ). Worst was the traffic officers arrived very late ..making us trapped for more than two hours. I hope the city would plan for effective transportation management solutions for 2013 like purchasing a logistics management software even freight management software. The city’s getting crowded while the roads getting narrower in some areas due to vendors .
Now back to the the holiday rush which is still in full swing, are you feeling the rush too? If so, what did that do to your stress level? Me? I choose to do the task or attend functions that’s relevant and bring me the most joy. My advise? Take some time and distinguish which activity is important and what is not as you adjust your focus to include the activities that bring you happiness. We have lots of invitations this holiday season but we decided to remove unnecessary responsibilities and social obligations like invitations from acquaintances, reunions from distant relatives, elementary class outreaches and other parties. How about you? How’s your yuletide season?
