Thanksgiving is only a week away.
There’s plenty of time to create the most successful holiday to date. Here’s how:
There are 3 phases of the Holiday to plan for:
Each phase needs it’s own plan.
This doesn’t have to take long—10 minutes can save you guilt and regret and give you a joyful intentional Holiday.
The Days before Thanksgiving
This one’s the easiest because if you’re already planning what you’ll cook for the day or you’re traveling then chances are you’ve done some planning already.
Get even more specific when it comes to the food.
If you’re cooking, now’s the time to decide which recipes will make the cut. Choosing the healthier versions of favorite dishes will go a long way to supporting your goal of a Happier Holiday.
If you’re traveling, have your packing list include snacks both for travel days and for times when you might get hungry at your destination. Don’t count on your hosts having things that work for you—bring your own.
Visualize this day. What would the perfect day look like? Feel like?
What does the end of the day look like?
Plan the hours of the day so you’re not idly staring at the rest of the pumpkin pie.
Rest of the Weekend
Often we focus so intently on the Big Day we forget we have 3 more days with visiting family and friends around.
Think about these days too. Plan for them.

You are responsible for your time and how you spend it—it’s a beautiful opportunity.
