There is something happy and uplifting about singing along to Christmas tunes. Whether you prefer the traditional music, or more modern re-writes of old favourites, or even completely new songs from modern artists, ou should absolutely start playing the music around your house now.
The happy lilt, the bouncy beats, the festivity and choral arrangements, can really uplift a stressful time of year. Belting out Christmas tunes while kids are tidying their bedrooms, or in the morning when the kids get up can really uplift your house in a really positive way.
You may not be a house that has the radio or music playing out-loud. You may prefer the TV on in the morning, or complete quietness as you all ease into different parts of your day.
My suggestion is to crank up the Christmas tunes this week, and really appreciate how it lifts the moods of your kids and of you.
A perfect antidote to stress and tiredness.
