I need to do a better job of getting more sleep and rest. Today, I feel exhausted, so much so I want to go crash in some corner someplace. That's the one tip on this list that means the most to me. If I could take the steps needed to get more sleep, I'd feel better, more refreshed more often.
Excellent article!!! Sure hope many read it and heed the good advice given here. I get weary just thinking of how much I always did over the holidays, including special activities with my students, church and my own family. I never asked others to contribute to a dinner because they didn't make dishes just the way I did and I wanted everything just so. The last few years my husband and I have been away for the holidays so no longer fuss like in years past. The kids have to establish their own family traditions.
Great article and excellent ideas. I do Thanksgiving every year - I really enjoy it - but I've learned that I really can't do everything. Now everyone pitches in - even my young niece and nephews. They really do enjoy contributing and knowing that they played a part in Thanksgiving. On the note about slipping exercise in - I wear my sneakers to work and keep my good shoes at my desk. This way, I can go out for a walk at lunch. Sometimes I can't get out for a walk, but do need to go to the bank or somewhere. Since I wear my sneakers, I can at least make the walk to whereever I have to go invigorating.
Great article. I think this is the most difficult time of the year to get through and be healthy. I'm determined this year to stay on track, so I celebrate the New Year with joy and happiness and NOT regret.
