Dim the Lights and Relax

Want to Conquer the Holidays this Year?

The days are short and the nights are long—a perfect time to enjoy the peacefulness of a crackling fire, a soothing candle, Christmas tree lights, or dimmed lighting.  Create an environment that allows your mind to slow its chatter and your body to find true relaxation.

Laughter is good medicine.  What makes you laugh?  Is it a funny movie, a funny book, watching the monkeys at the zoo, people-watching, a great friend or a good comedian?  Find an opportunity or two this week to laugh more than you normally do.

Tis the Giving Season

Want to Conquer the Holidays this Year?

The holiday season is ripe with opportunities to give back.  Consider a donation to a food bank, an adopt-a-family program, volunteering, sponsoring a child, helping out a neighbor in need–the list goes on and on.  Giving is not only good for the receiver; it also has health benefits for the giver.
