The Holiday Eating (and drinking) Season is OFFICIALLY upon us!
I'm still recovering from the election, and from turning 29, just in time for hectic holiday family shenanigans.
It's no secret that this season is prime time for focused self-care. The traveling, the shopping, the planning, the cooking, the socializing...It's all wonderful fun, but if you get too caught up in it, you are at risk for physical and emotional burnout.
Take the time for yourself to get your head on straight, treat your body right, and make sure you feel amazing, all season long.
Are you ready?
Here are some resources to help you get prepared for what's to come.
I've been loving leaf on Youtube.
Watching their videos is both soothing and inspiring for my braincells.

Nothing official here, but I DO challenge you to drink one or two more glasses of water each day this week, than you normally do.
You already know all the benefits to your health, as they're listed in practically every health article on the internet.
You can even make a drinking game out of it:
Every time *that* uncle says something awful at Thanksgiving, or if mom does something really mom-like (like wanting to look in your ears) or when your brother's kid has a melt-down...
Take a sip!
Cheers and I hope you all have a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving.
All my love,
Greetings and salutations!
Sometimes things don't work out as planned, and this weekend is one of those times. I was supposed to be hosting some family members I haven't seen in a while, but due to some emergent circumstances, it won't pan out. Disappointment is a frequent visitor in everybody's life, and I know that even though it doesn't feel like there are any winners in this situation, what is happening is for the best. After a suffient amount of sulking, I've found the next best remedy is to find and/or create opportunities get excited about.
Luckily, there's MUCH to look forward to this week.
