When I start feeling that negativity, I just color my world (figuratively & literally). I wear bright colors, put out bright flowers (either fresh or artificial), open the blinds and let in the light. When I'm really down, I get out the coloring book and crayons. Nothing like coloring a bright picture to move my mood towards positive. If it's a really negative mood, coloring HARD with DARK colors helps get out the aggression and soon I'm looking for a page with flowers and sunshine. 185
Instead of labeling gifts with name tags, use color-coded stars or stickers to identify who that package is for. Keep the code a secret until Christmas morning. Saves time and money and adds to the excitement and suspense. This is especially effective for the overly curious spouse or child.
