The Holidays are upon us! It seems that during this time of celebration we find ourselves busy, full of stress and always in a hurry.  It could be finances,  an abundance of obligations or a thought of a lost loved one. What do you do, what do I do to keep a healthier approach to the season?

Holiday Thoughts

  • Prioritize the activities-no need to “do it all.”
  • Set aside a specific time to process sad and lonely feelings. Don’t let the feelings control you..YOU decide to move onto the positive thoughts, take control.
  • Maintain the healthy habits
  • Set a budget and stick with it
  • Don’t dwell in the past, use those experiences to keep the journey moving forward with strong resolve!
  • Do something for someone else…maybe volunteering some time to help.
  • Try something new…make a snowman, snow fort. No  snow? Make a sandcastle 🙂
  • Always schedule time for yourself-read a book, movie etc.
  • Keep up the fitness routine or start a new one.

Maybe a useful thought or two?  What do the holidays do for you? How do you celebrate?


Celebrate the happiness that friends are always giving, make every day a holiday and celebrate just living! -Bradley
