One of the best holiday gifts you can give your spouse (and others) is the gift of “calm.”
Speak words of calm. Say “it’s alright” or “let’s take a break.” Change the mood and help people de-stress.
You can also ask questions like, “Remember when?” and invite people into moments of connection (whether that is asking for a kiss or inviting people to play a game).
Pause. Take a breath. Speak something that helps everyone slow down, relax and connect with others.
I feel like saying we need to all calm down a little. Let’s take the time to breathe. Pauline Marois
