USING THE COGNITIVE WORKOUT TO ACCOMPLISH HOLIDAY TASKS …

There is much to do prior to December 25, especially when Thanksgiving falls late in November as it did this year.  Those of you who have celebrated Hanukkah can, perhaps, rest on your laurels and watch the rest of us scramble.  Or, maybe, you too get caught up in some of the ‘Christmas Craziness’.

  • Select one or two tasks you would like to accomplish each day.
  • Be realistic about what you can expect to do in one day.
  • That morning incorporate them into your Cognitive Workout.
  • Write them down and read them aloud at least once.

Here are some examples:

I am writing holiday cards today.

I am putting up the tree today.

I am decorating the house today.

      I am buying (_______)’s gift today.

I am baking cookies today.

At the end of the day, you’ll say:

I am feeling pleased and surprised at how much I got done today!

                                                                        TRY IT!
