I just returned home from New York City where we taped another segment for The Today Show (which airs January 2nd), and I’m exhausted and overwhelmed at all I have to do before the holidays!!! SO I’m taking my own advice that I shared in my most recent Hot Tip E-newsletter and making time for what matters most. Instead of using all kinds of time and energy to create a completely original thought to impress my readers, I’m copying and pasting that Hot Tip here as my blog entry so that I can go on upstairs and cuddle with my husband! 🙂
Hot Tip #8 – Making Time for What Matters Most
At this point in the holidays, you’re probably like me – still addressing cards, frantically shopping for just the right gifts, trying to stay on top of the wrapping responsibilities while simultaneously attempting to keep the plethora of wrapping paper and bows out of sight for when company comes by.There’s so much to do… so many errands to run… so many dishes to prepare… so many parties to attend and people to connect with.We can easily begin to view the holidays as a burden rather than a blessing if we’re not careful.
Your husband may view the holidays as a burden as well, especially if you’re unable to squeeze him into your daytimer at all.At the risk of sounding as if I’m adding one more thing to your ever-growing to-do list, I encourage you to consider quick ways that you can make a sexual connection.When you jump into the shower in the morning, invite him to join you!Tired feet after a long day of shopping?Offer to rub lotion on whatever body part he prefers in exchange for a foot rub.When you climb into bed at night, tell Santa he can have any 5-minute jolly he wants from Mrs. Claus.You get the idea.Make this Christmas season one he’ll never forget, not because of what he received under the tree, but because of what he received under the covers!
Wishing you the Happiest of Holidays,
Shannon Ethridge, M.A.
