Happy Holidays! As we get ready for all the celebrations of the season and spending time with loved ones, I hope you take some time to focus on you, too.

Even outside of holiday season, adults are more stressed than ever. Now is a good time to reframe our mental approach to the holidays, and every day. There are easy ways to keep stress at bay:

  • Have realistic expectations. Life, and holiday dinners, are never perfect.
  • Helping others can offer a personal perspective.
  • Love thyself. Self-care helps you be your best, for yourself and for others.
  • Let loved ones know you appreciate and care for them.

As we close out 2017, my final message to you is this. You are special. You are worthy. You make a positive difference in my life. Thank you for being in my circle.

Best wishes to you and yours for a blessed holiday season.
