Reinventing ChristmasFeatureanchor featureanchor

Lesley Garner Are you tired of people asking: 'What are you doing for Christmas?' 

It seems you're expected to have a plan. But what if a traditional Christmas doesn't work for you? Maybe there are family estrangements or you're facing your first Christmas without a loved one? 
We posed this question to author and former agony aunt Lesley Garner who did the Hoffman Process in 2003. Here's her advice on reinventing Christmas:
"No matter how sophisticated, how world weary and world beaten, our inner child wants love, acceptance, fulfillment, magic, our wishes to come true. At some level we all want gold, frankincense and myrrh delivered by kings and shepherds with a choir of angels thrown in. And an adoring mother and a protective daddy. Oh, and please can we have peace on earth and goodwill to all men. Thank you.

My friends, if you want a truly happy Christmas, lose the expectations and begin with what is real. The rock bottom ingredients of a fulfilling Christmas aren't presents and mince pies and twinkly Christmas trees, lovely though these are. They are peace, goodwill and a recognition of the gifts in your life..."

Hoffman Monthly Top TipTopTipanchor

Dogs in bowler hats
You're having a laugh!

Laughter is well known to be very good for us. Begin with a little chuckle, extend it to a few giggles, keep going, see if you can have a good old belly laugh.

Do it with friends - it's infectious! If you find yourself the recipient of a sales call on the phone, try laughing and see what happens.

'A day without laughter is a day wasted'.
Charlie Chaplin
