How to Mentally Prepare for the Holidays

The holiday season is here, and for many of us it is a time of great joy…and also of great stress! You might just be wondering what gifts to buy or if your wallet can handle the expenses. You might be dreading an unwelcome annual visitor or a cross country trip on a day where snow may be an issue. You might be wondering if this year your cat will leave the tree alone.

Why Keeping a Gratitude Journal is Helpful

Traditionally, the last two months of the year are those during which we begin to reflect on the events that have transpired during the year that will soon come to a close. Thanksgiving is just a few short weeks away, and families that are fortunate enough to be able to come together for dinner will, more than likely, ask those at the table to answer a simple question: “for what are you grateful?” The answer might seem trivial or profound to those who hear it, but for each of us, gratitude is very personal.
