‘Tis the season to…

Schedule ourselves within an inch of our lives.
Attend parties galore and family functions a plenty.
Be inundated with sales, jingles, and crazed shoppers.
Go on an extended sugar high.
Let your healthy habits go on vacation.
Get hit with a nasty bug or ten.
Feel anxious, depressed, and generally icky.
Emulate Martha Stewart in an attempt to prove you’re a bona fide domestic goddess.
Blow the budget on gifts, treats, and booze.

The good news: YOU have the power to change that!

Because it is also the season to…

Slow down.
Spend time with those you love.
Disconnect from email, television, and anything with a battery.
Tune in to what you need vs. what you want.
Say yes to the things you really and truly want to do.
Say no to the things you don’t.
Celebrate your favorite family traditions.
Create new family traditions.
Laugh, celebrate, and take time to enjoy your life.
Volunteer, get involved in your community, and bring joy into someone else’s life.
Cozy up by the fire and get immersed in your favorite book.
Go for walks, play in the snow, and suck on icicles.
Reflect on what you have accomplished this year.
Create a vision for where you want to go next year.

Let's stay connected!
