Ah yes, the Holidays, they’re supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year, and as you know they can have a way of turning into a very stressful time. The holiday season can often bring unwelcome guests, an overwhelming array of demands, parties, shopping, baking, cleaning, socializing and entertaining to name just a few. Or perhaps you may be spending the Holidays alone and are feeling a little lonely or depressed. But whatever the source of your angst, family dynamics, financing, lack of self-confidence, or painful memories, etc…you are certainly not alone and there ARE solutions.
Therefore, I’ve devised some simple and practical tips and fixes that are included in this 12 week series so you can learn how to minimize the stress that accompanies the holiday celebrations. You may even end up enjoying them more than you thought you could. J

Struggle is the evidence of progress, and happy people live by this creed.

If you don’t have your physical energy in good shape, then your mental energy (your focus), your emotional energy (your feelings), and your spiritual energy (your purpose) will affect you negatively.
Magic Morsel Tips: Remember to take a breather. Make some time for yourself. Spending just 15 minutes alone, without distractions, may refresh you enough to handle everything you need to do. Take a walk at night and star gaze. Listen to soothing music. Find something that reduces stress by clearing your mind, slowing your breathing and restoring your inner calm.
