Human brain potential can make the season bright
Many traditions are perfectly lovely ways to celebrate the holidays, but they often leave little room for using your full brain potential and creativity if you're used to going through the motions.
Now is the perfect time to begin brainstorming how to make this season different from the last, with the goal of making the holidays healthier, less materialistic and more focused on love than years past.
For instance, you may want to think about activities that you and your loved ones can engage in, rather than sitting around the television watching old movies and eating food. This may include a ping pong tournament or clearing out the basement to make it into a roller rink right in your home.
Rather than exchanging gifts with friends and family, consider giving to charity in someone else's name. Each person will go home feeling good that someone has been clothed, fed or otherwise cared for in exchange for you giving something up.
You have much unused brain potential, even if you don't realize it. Use that creativity to help make this a memorable holiday season.
