It’s crazy to think that the holiday season is already upon us! I can’t wait to spend Christmas and New Year’s with friends and family, sharing good food, drinks and of course, gifts. Every year there is so much focus on gifts. You have to make sure you have one for everyone, and make sure they’re going to like it and that you’ve spent enough money on it. But this year I’m going to focus on something different – giving the gift of time.
It is often overlooked or underestimated, but to me time spent with people you care about is the best gift you can give. After all, when you are old and grey and looking back on your life, are you going to remember what your Aunt Linda picked out for you from Old Navy for Christmas 2017? Nope. You’re going to remember the laughs, the cheer, the moments spent with those you are closest to. I know that sounds super cheesy and you are probably rolling your eyes right now but it’s totally true; it’s what really matters not just at this time of year, but all year round.
After taking my course on professional development that you can read about here, I realized the value of time. It is hands-down our most valuable resource. Even if you have all the money in the world, you cannot buy back your time, or buy more time, which is why we must spend the time we have wisely, making memories that will stay with us for a lifetime.
PLUS new research is showing that connection and socialization are turning out to be the best thing for our health, and you know I’m all about helping you live as healthy and happy as humanly possible 😉
JORD Wood Watches
With that said, gifts are still pretty great. There’s not too many feelings better than the one you get when you know you got someone the perfect gift. Watching their reaction as they open it, or how happy they are when they first use it or wear it. It just gives you that warm fuzzy feeling that we all chase, especially during the holidays. One sure-fire way to get that feeling this year is to give a JORD watch.
I am thrilled to be teaming up with JORD Wood Watches because I absolutely LOVE their watches (and I wouldn’t be posting about them if I didn’t ;))!
JORD watches are handcrafted and made with raw materials. You can tell by the look and feel that JORD takes the time and effort to make sure your watch is absolutely perfect. And the box they come in is super cute!!
