When it comes to the holidays, there’s often a rush towards more is more. All the decorations. All the parties. All the shopping. All the gifts. It can be... a lot.
To celebrate the season this year, we put forward the idea of just enough - doing the holidays your way, on your terms, to make merry however feels most meaningful and special to you. That might be attending just *one* holiday party. It might be giving fewer / more thoughtful gifts to the people that matter most. It might mean weekends at home in your underwear rewatching holiday classics. It might mean absolutely no red and green tartan or bows or bling... though if that’s your thing, enjoy!
Ultimately, it’s about not getting caught up in the craze and instead refocusing on what matters most to you - your “just enough.”

“This holiday season, what I’ve been lucky to discover over the past few years, what’s been just enough has been to just be present and to feel content in being present during the holidays. I used to get a lot of anxiety around the holidays after my mom passed because I was so fixed on how I wanted it to go, so I just adore and appreciate being able to be present and with loved ones or spending time on my own for the holidays.”

“My idea of just enough this holiday season is all about being present when I’m around my loved ones. Just being here and now and not so much focused on the past or in the future. Just really being present and enjoying the moment. I think that’s what’s enough.”

“I’m really trying to embrace being at peace during the holiday season and really relaxing and taking the time to show my love to my family in as many ways as I can, if I can’t be with them. And just being enough by letting them know that I love them and that I’m there.”
