It is the season of joy and laughter.
A time to rest and bond with family.
A time to rest and plan for the new year.
In all your jaiye and Detty December, remember to rest.
Stay home and see a movie with the kids or a significant other.
Read a book and sip some wine or tea.

Take a walk in the early morning; hopefully, the harmattan will come.
Listen to some calming songs.
Let the wind play on your face.
Feel the dry air hit your nostrils.
Be one with nature.
The discomfort is part of the weight. Eat well enough.
Gym dey your front.
Chop small small, to lose weight hard pass to gain am.
If you believe in prayer, do so too. Exist in the moment.
Exist in it.

Leave social media alone this season.
Disconnect from the virtual world and focus on your surroundings.
Embrace the peace and tranquility that come with being present in the moment.

When talking to someone, actively be with the person.
Look at the people you talk to.
Learn the person’s nuances.
A frequent eyebrow twitch or curved, smiling lips?
These are the small details that make a person unique.
Engage in meaningful conversations and truly listen to what they have to say.
Appreciate the beauty of human connection and the intricacies of each individual.

When seeing a movie, actively see the movie. Immerse yourself in the storyline; let the emotions wash over you. Appreciate the cinematography and the subtle details that make it come alive. Disconnect from distractions and let yourself be fully present in the cinematic experience.

When taking a walk, actively feel the ground beneath your feet.
Embrace the sights and sounds around you. Appreciate the beauty of nature, and let it rejuvenate your soul.

Take the time to appreciate the beauty around you, whether it’s the twinkling lights or the laughter of loved ones. Embrace the spirit of giving and spread kindness wherever you go. Remember that this season is about more than just material gifts; it’s about connecting with others and creating lasting memories. So, make the most of this Yuletide season and let love and joy fill your heart.

Enjoy the Yuletide.
It is the season of love, joy, and celebration.
