Christmas Wishes for NRA Women Readers

Not all the best things in life fit under a balsam tree.

Merry Christmas Friends In Snow

During a normal year, as the month of December winds to an end, many of us are as maxed-out on stress as our credit cards are on cash. The year 2020 has been anything but a "normal year" for everyone, and it's certainly no different for NRA Women. This Christmas, it's more important than ever to focus on the joy and beauty in the world, and the positive things to come. Here are our Christmas wishes for you, our NRA Women readers.

We wish you health
If the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that we should never take our health for granted. This Christmas, we wish you health for your body, mind and soul. In our experience, the best way to secure that is with plenty of time spent in the outdoors. It’s not just about getting exercise, either—there’s lots of evidence that simply being outside reduces stress and depression. You don’t have to be a world-class survival expert to reap those benefits, either. Starting small with some simple close-to-home walks and hikes will show big benefits and soon!

If you want to get inspired by what the outdoors has to offer you, we recommend this article about the best podcasts for outdoors women.

We wish you security
Every one of us spent more time inside our home this year than we wanted to. But as we Americans were spring cleaning (and shaking our heads at the exploits of a certain king of tigers), we were reminded that our home is and must remain our castle. Our Christmas wish for you, dear readers, is that your castle stands proud and that you remain safe within its walls.

There are many ways to shore up your home security, and many of them don’t require that you whip out that already-overtaxed credit card. From simply thinking through your home-defense plan, to ensuring you have what you need for a potential emergency, we’ve got you covered.

We wish you new discoveries about yourself
One of the greatest gifts that anyone can receive is the discovery that she is stronger, more capable and braver than she ever guessed. We may not know you personally, dear reader, but we do know that the ultimate Christmas gift is already inside your mind and heart, just waiting to be unwrapped. Our wish for you this year is that you open it up by taking a chance and trying something new.

Perhaps that “something new” is trying out a new shooting sport for fun. Or maybe you’d like to try your hand at hunting. Possibly, you might want to strike out into the wilderness with a buddy, a backpack and a backup gun. Whatever you choose, we promise that you’ll discover new things about yourself … and you’ll be impressed.

We wish you everything you wanted under the tree
Of course, of course. Christmas isn’t about material possessions; the gifts we exchange are symbolic. That said … you’re not a terrible person if you’re a little disappointed with what you got under the tree this year. We NRA Women can be choosy, and that’s OK. Just in case you didn’t get everything on your wish list, we have some terrific ideas about stuff you’ll love using your return/exchange money to buy (hint, hint).

Merry Christmas from all of us at NRA, and NRA Women in particular—here’s to many more!
