It's that wonderful time of the year -- but for some of us working moms, it can be extremely stressful to the point of exhaustion.

We basically miss out on the spirit of the season because we get so caught up in everything that we have to do, buy and decorate. We have the burden of making sure that everyone has a wonderful holiday.

But what about us? That's when we need to make a mindful effort to make sure we enjoy the holiday season. #molinamindfulmoments

First rule of thumb is to pack your patience when shopping. I LOVE music and I like to shop, so when I walk into a store I focus on the music playing. This time of year it's almost always Christmas music and I have no shame in singing out loud while wandering around shopping. The other shoppers might not enjoy it since I can't carry a tune to save my life.
