People craft– taking care of yourself

Let the holidays make you healthier and happier.  From carolling to giving gifts, holiday magic isn’t just great for your soul– it’s great for your health.  Boost immunity by carolling.  Singing regulates breathing patterns, allowing your lungs to take in more energizing oxygen. You’ll get mood-lifting endorphins. Melt stress by taking a whiff of your tree.  Some scientists say we associate the fresh evergreen scent with nature.  No tree?  Light a pine scented candle.  Up your popularity by decking the halls.  Neighbors tend to rate those fellow residents who hang a wreath at their front door and put out a string of lights as friendly.  Strengthen holidays bonds by keeping family rituals.  Do you enjoy walking or driving around to see holiday lights?  Maximize health by going to holiday parties.  Socializing fights depression and this fortifies your immunity.  Increase self-esteem by giving small things– a homemade treat or holiday scented soap.

    We attend the family Christmas Eve service, mostly for the singing! It really gets us in the spirit. I love it that our sons, Max and Jake sing with big voices.

    I agree about the decorating. We don’t go all-out like you do, but have hung lights. Our tree is in the front bay window which looks pretty from the outside.

  3. Friendliness and the wonder of Christmas comes to life during this dark season of the year! Last night when Gerry and I were walking our dogs, a car stopped to tell us how much they liked our Christmas decorations. They were neighbors we hadn’t met. It meant a lot to us.

    When we extend ourselves in some way, we meet new people. As one year comes to a close, we have more dreams to live in the New Year.
