Christmas is a great time of year to show joy and gratitude for key relationships: in our families, significant others, friends... in all that is around us.
Despite knowing this, western society has shifted Christmas' focus from enhancing these connections with our presence, joy, and happiness to a chaotic display of mindless consumption, indulgence, and a showcase of love through material objects.
While many of us join in with the best of intent, do not forget the best present you can give is to be present - with your time and attention.
How will you decide to spend your time this holiday? Indulging in presents or present?
