The Art Of Giving This Holiday Season

The Art Of Giving This Holiday Season With Amida Wealth

Holiday shopping is in full swing! Amongst the delicious smells, family gatherings, and love shared across the globe, finances may be greatly impacted by the constant notion to buy more and be a consumer. A new holiday study from American Express found that 86% of young adults spent more money during the holidays last year than they planned to. Sales increase dramatically as people purchase gifts, decorations, and supplies to celebrate. In the U.S., Christmas shopping season starts as early as October, and is typically the largest economic stimulus for many nations around the world. In other words, we are shifting along the economic cycle. At Amida Wealth our fivefold elements of wealth are health, career, finances, relationships, and personal growth. Align your pillars this holiday season and turn off the noise. Focus on the things that matter most and remember that wealth is a mindset!

This comes from deep within our souls and creates happiness. Soulful gifts do not require you to break the bank. At Amida, we encourage you to incorporate intentional holiday practices into our lives to allow abundance and peace to flow.

Holiday Gifting & The History

Ancient Egyptians were one of the first civilizations to practice the tradition of giving gifts. Similar to a birthday, coronation day was a day when pharaohs were believed to transform into gods and begin a new life. Pharaohs received gifts to celebrate and mark this important occasion. In other words, the ancient tradition of gift giving can be traced as far back as cavemen! It was an important part of their communities, particularly for being respected and starting a family. Leaders of tribes would often give gifts to a person who had accomplished something great for their tribe. Put intention into your gift giving this holiday season, and remember the history of gifting. Gift with intention, from the heart, and with purpose. Share your abundance, and share your heart. Wealth is a mindset!
