12. Don’t get lost in traveling and road trips during Chol Hamoed, all the while loosing this precious time for a higher level of prayer and Torah study.
13. If you find yourself sad during Yom Tov, it is because you haven’t cleared all your sins and Hashem desires your repentance so He can shire more light upon you.
14. Be careful to work only if absolutely necessary during Chol Hamoed and even then, be careful to have your heart connected to the Yom Tov rather then business.
15. If you have a choice, do the preparations for Yom Tov yourself, even if it means cleaning floors and tedious chores. You will get all the time back.
16. Think only joyful and holy thoughts during Yom Tov.
17. Following Yom Tov, you might feel a strong pressure to sin and become depressed. This is because you weren’t joyful enough during the holiday.
18. If you open your home to others on Yom Tov, Hashem will open up his storehouses of blessing and holiness in return.
