Avoid the Grinch in You This Christmas

by D. Light December 11, 2010 02:34 AM EST
The lights, the sparkles, the noise! Mostly it's fun to get caught up in the festivities of the season, but not always. Every once in a while the inner Grinch emerges to grump about the lunacy of all this excitement and excess. And for some, the added pressures this time of year are enough to inspire a full-on Grinchy transformation.

Thankfully, it's preventable. Here's how to get the Grinch out ...

Aries
Give yourself a present. Do it first, before you even buy anyone else's gift and let yourself have it now. It will put you in a more generous mood.

Taurus
Shun materialism. Focus on other aspects of the holiday. It's not about how much you spend, it's about what it means.

Gemini
Start making your holiday phone calls to distant relatives and friends you haven't seen in a while. Reconnecting puts you in the holiday spirit.

Cancer
Decorate. When you're home feels joyful, so do you.

Leo
Perform. Singing the songs and reciting the poems you can only hear this time of year jumpstarts your happy mood.

Virgo
Eat right. It's not the time of year associated with good nutrition, but if you can give yourself a healthy diet your whole attitude reflects it.

Libra
Make sacred dates. Plan one-on-one time with the one you love and keep those plans no matter how busy you both get. Special relationships fortify you through the season.

Scorpio
Purge the closets to make room for the new. Get rid of the old stuff and give your hopes and wishes for the new year room to breathe.

Sagittarius
Explore. Seeing new parts of the world keeps you invigorated, and you don't even have to go far to get to a place you haven't seen before.

Capricorn
Learn and uphold the traditions of your family, community and heritage. It means something to you and makes you feel connected to others.

Aquarius
Give to charity. Nothing makes you happier than to provide resources or services to those who need them most.

Pisces
Pray. Spiritual alignment keeps you in a state of positivity and love.
