Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire

Couple near fireplaceThis week is all about the audio.  I’m giving your eyes a break so your ears can hear these tension tackling tips and keep you humming through the holidays.  Since I don’t actually sing anything, there is no threat of getting the Christmas carol stuck in your head for the day. (But I do hope the tip sticks!)

Today I have three tips and tunes to share with you.  You can tune in above or read below.

  1. Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire…

Too many of those nuts, candies, and homemade delights might tip the scales out of your favor. If you are sipping Jack Daniels to handle your woes or to prevent Jack Frost from nipping at your nose, the additional indulgences could wreak havoc on your health. The potential to pack on the pounds over the holidays is certainly possible. To prevent you from becoming a weight bearing statistic, pay attention to the partridge and hang out around the pear tree instead of the party table.

5. Making a List and Checking It Twice…

Don’t expect your already overloaded mind to remember any more than your way home and the names of your immediate family members. Count on lists to remind you of those things you have determined you must do. Make as many lists as necessary, but review them all before taking action. Prioritize, organize, scrutinize, and compromise, if necessary.

  1. Deck the Halls…

Surround yourself with things that bring you joy. Designate a room, corner, or cupboard as your own. Then decorate that space as only you know how. Your spirit needs nourishment and encouragement. Give yourself the time and place to celebrate what is sacred to you.

Okay, that’s it for today.

In a nutshell: moderation, expectation, and decorations.
