It sounds to simple to be true. Repeat a holiday affirmation list for a peaceful holiday. We build on what we think about in our private thoughts. You know how it happens. Kinda like this!
Our minds are super powerful. Numerous scientific studies tell us that if we change our thinking our outside world will change.
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Philippians 4:8
My Holiday Affirmation List
Be sure to pin this for later and/or download the printable. The bathroom mirror or inside the medicine cabinet in the bathroom is a great place to pin these. I also find that in that space just between the shower tile and the ceiling is another good place to hang them. I also pin a few to the fridge for everyone to see.
Just for this moment, I will smile.

Right now, I will choose to think about happy moments.

Your Holiday Affirmations
What are the thoughts in your head? One exercise is to spend 5 minutes writing down the thoughts buzzing in your head and then respond to them on paper.
A great time to do this is right before bed. It sets up a clean slate. All the worries and issues are safely listed on the piece of paper by the bed. Now your mind can rest. The worries will be right there in the morning for you, if you choose to pick them up again.
Take it one step further by responding to these worries with actionable steps or positive thoughts on that same piece of paper. The act of responding to them on paper with positive thoughts removes their power to plague you.
