How To Show Gratitude For The Organiser You Love This Christmas

Why gratitude is totally necessary for everyone’s wellbeing, and why Organisers are often overlooked at this hectic time of year.

At Collctiv we champion the Organiser.

It’s come to our attention that around this time of year Organisers are leant on more than ever. So while everybody else is free to enjoy Christmas dinner, getting drunk and opening presents, The organiser's reality is often a stark contrast. 

We’re not happy with this.

We think it should change. 

And whilst we’re not expecting everyone to become an Organiser and remove the stress of Organising everything, we would like to begin a conversation about showing gratitude towards the Organisers you love this Christmas.

If nothing else, it’s a step in a positive direction. 

So let’s begin at the start. Naturally, what is Gratitude?

Gratitude - The quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and return kindness. 

That’s nice isn’t it?

Thank You google. You see? That’s gratitude. 

Gratitude has long been argued by psychologists as one of the cornerstones of happiness. Why is this?

Because being grateful and actively conducting life in a state of gratitude prompts a shift away from focusing on the negative elements of our lives and into a space of loving kindness. Something that we can all agree is necessary. Especially during this season.

“Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance” - Eckhart Tolle

So how can we tie this in to the Organisers at Christmas time? 

Firstly, since they do everything, I would urge everyone to cultivate some form of gratitude towards Organisers always. 

As an extension of this I would urge everyone to cultivate some form of gratitude towards everyone always as a rule of thumb.

For Organisers at Christmas they are required and often thrust the burden of numerous logistical tools that allow everyone else to gladly enjoy the season so commonly associated with rest.

This does not grow on trees. 

Common duties can include.

  • Gift giving
  • Christmas dinner
  • Secret Santa
  • Christmas Parties
  • Travel logistics 
  • Ensuring a fun time is had by all

It’s a lot.  

And because Contributors would gladly let all of these things creep up on them, The Organisers do it without hesitation. 

We don’t know if it’s because they were born with an urge. Act out of pure frustration or even kindness? But the point is they do it, and we need to acknowledge it as a Contributor dominant society. 

So, I’ve scratched together a few ways that we can show gratitude this Christmas towards the Organisers that we love

  1. Taking on some responsibilities
  2. By them a gift to show that you care
  3. Make sure to give kind words of affirmation
  4. Give back by Showing that you appreciate the effort that has been made!

I won’t argue with psychology. And if being an Organiser at Christmas is as difficult as we know it to be then i hereby declare it our festive duty to express thanks, gratitude and cheer. 

Also, by that same token. Try taking some individual responsibility and have a merry christmas in the process. 

With festive regards, The Collctiv team!
