By the time the calendar hits the new year, many of us are flat-out exhausted. The hustle and bustle of the holiday season can take its toll on just about everyone. But it doesn’t have to – or at least shouldn’t have to.
Slow down a bit, breathe and focus on what makes the season so special: giving back to others. With so many seniors socially isolated or at great distances from their loved ones, it doesn’t take much to better their season. Here’s a few suggestions:
Offer to run an errand – Go pick up that holiday turkey for your senior neighbor or offer to drive them to a service or mass if they don’t have a ride.
Ask them – Maybe they need their snow brushed off the porch or their wreath adjusted. Why not ask to see what they need.
