Halloween Can be Healthy!

Make it a Minimalist Holiday and Stress Less

Ok, I just checked the calendar and there are only five weeks until Thanksgiving!! Whoa… and only nine weeks until Christmas!!  Do you feel the stress coming on?  How about considering a minimalist holiday? Strip away the holiday trappings and get down to the essentials.

Tap into what is of greatest value. 

·         Adjust your expectations and commitments according to your values. 

Pace yourself.

·         Beware of over-committing.  What do you want to do this holiday season?  Who do you want to spend the holidays with?

·         Start a holiday planning schedule that will allow margin for mind, body, and soul.  Your schedule should reflect your values.

·         Budget wisely.  Stop over-spending and live within your means!  This will reduce much tension and stress!

Cherish the small stuff.

·         The little notes, the handmade gifts; these can be more meaningful than expensive store bought gifts.

·         Time is a gift in itself.  How much time will you spend with those you cherish.

Keep your home simplistically tidy.

·         Stay on target with your green cleaning routines and you'll avoid the trap of a mad cleaning spree before company comes!  

·         Stay well stocked with great non-toxic, eco-friendly cleaning products.

You can enjoy this upcoming holiday season with less stress with the right focus!
Stay tuned for more encouraging tips to navigate you through the holidays.
