Create An Attitude Of Gratitude For The Holidays
We have so many things to be thankful for. My suggestion to you is to start a gratitude journal. Every night write down 5 things that you are grateful for and then when you wake up in the morning read the 5 things you wrote the night before. You will go to sleep with a feeling of gratitude which will give you more peace in your life and you will wake up with a positive mindset ready to love and serve others.
I have been doing this for years and it makes such a profound difference in my life. Try it you will love it!!
A Prayer Of Thanks
Lord, we thank You for Your blessings, We thank You every day, But even if we had no blessings, We would thank You anyway.
We're not just thankful for Your blessings, We're thankful every way, Thankful for the privilege of learning, To be thankful night and day.
I thank You, Lord for using me, Please let my joy always be Christ in me.
Lord, we thank You for Your blessings, We thank You every day. For calling us to a deeper learning, And for teaching us to pray.
Lord, we thank You for Your blessings, We thank You every day, Keep us ever mindful of Your mercy And be thankful every day.
Stress Tips For The Holiday
Shop early or late and avoid the holiday shopping rush, you will be less stressed and save time.
Limit your sugar and caffeine intake, this will help keep your immune system high, and decrease your stress.
Make sure you continue to make the time to exercise. It is really important more than ever even if just for short amounts of time.
Practice Thanks-Living every day. Be grateful for everything you have and that will keep you in a positive state of mind.
Rehydrate your body. Drink lots of water, especially when traveling on a plane. One cup for every hour of flying. Normally drink 8-10 glasses of water per day.
Party Eating Tips For The Holiday
Remember never go to a party really hungry. Some people starve all day and then overeat at the party, this is a big no no.
Never socialize around the food, you will have the tendency to pick at the food and eat more without even realizing it.
Always put your food on a plate so you can see how much you are really eating.
Avoid extra alcohol calories. Limit yourself to one or two alcoholic beverages. Then you can have sparkling water with a splash of cranberry juice to make a spritzer.
Remember to laugh, socialize, and have fun. Allow people to be the focus of the party instead of the food.
Quote For December
deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we
are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that most
frightens us. We ask ourselves, "Who am I to be brilliant, talented,
fabulous?" Well, actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of
God. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel
insecure around you. You were born to make manifest the glory of God that
is within you. It's not just in some of us, it's in everyone. As we
let our light shine, we give other people permission to do the same. As we
are liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
May you have a Joyous, Healthy, and Happy Holiday Season and May God Bless you in 2012 and Always in All Ways.
