Black Friday. Small Business Saturday. Cyber Monday. #GivingTuesday. Are you ready for White Space Wednesday?
Deep down you know that the shopping, wrapping, baking, partying, hosting, decorating, volunteering, donating, caroling and attending on top of the regular work-a-day schedule of daily life will all get done. Probably has something to do with Santa’s magic dust. Perhaps if we schedule a bit of white space on our calendars, Christmas will arrive without the hectic hyperventilating that is a constant companion in December.
Over the years many of our posse have mastered the art of Holiday Management. They decorate early or practice Christmas in July or have learned to just say NO to adding items to the calendar (I envy those who can do that). But they aren’t the only ones who deserve some Zen time. Even if your Halloween pumpkin still sits at the front door or you have yet to order Christmas cards, every elf needs to schedule a little down time for the soul.
We challenge you to encourage your posse to embrace White Space Wednesday (or any other day for that matter…it’s a state of mind rather than a day on the calendar) in your schedule and take a break from Holiday Management. #WSW may give you perspective and help you realize that Valentine’s cards are always welcomed in lieu of the traditional Christmas greeting.
