If you find yourself with endless "to-do" lists during Advent, consider making a "not-to-do" list. It can be a fun way to turn off worry and the tendency to over-book during the season. What are the things you and your family want to be intentional about NOT doing this Advent season?
Maybe your list will say - "Do not":
- spend to much time shopping
- over schedule
Consider what takes away from the real meaning of the Advent season and put that on the list. The "not-to-do" list can be individual or a family list.
Sometimes the best way to figure out what TO DO, is to first determine what not to do. End your "no-to-do" list with a reminder that God is with us throughout the season, no matter what we do (or don't do!).
