Holidays Can Be Filled with Demands and Happiness
Holidays bring us joy and stress. To make sure you have joy, here is my recipe to keep you in balance.
It’s there even though many of us seem to be searching for it this year because of all the chaos that has been occurring for the last few months.
Lucky for me that I love Christmas. I could hardly wait for the Friday after Thanksgiving to decorate the house and bring in the color and lights. Maybe it’s because I grew up in Minnesota where the winter days seemed exceptionally dark! What I do know is that as soon as I start putting on the lights and meticulously placing the ornaments on the tree, I’m in the spirit. And as that transpires, my heart is open to possibilities and smiles and joy. So, as a result, I decide to spend all of Thanksgiving weekend to deck the halls and enjoy the time and the space I’m creating. And then, somehow or other, it seems like I do have time for all of the other items on my list.
Here is what helps me with all of that lifting and climbing and stretching when I’m decorating. Whether I’m placing all of my Santa Claus figures on the shelves or I’m winding the strands of lights around the tree or I’m reaching for the highest limb on the tree to get the absolute best ornament in the space I’ve chosen, I want to have my body easily cooperate and not go into a reaction. I want to make sure that my body will let me do everything that I’ve planned to do.
Daily Clean Your House Flow to Start Your Day Right = Holidays Bring Joy
First, I start the day with the Daily Clean Your House Flow!
Then, off and on during the decoration extravaganza, I do the following:
1. Right hand — cup and hold left shoulder near neck
Left hand — hold fingers at left pelvis/groin area
Left hand — move fingers to left sit bone
Switch and do the right side.
2. Right hand — cup back of neck with fingers on the left side
Left hand — hold base of spine at coccyx
Left hand — hold outside of the left knee (the anti-inflammatory point)!
Switch to do the right side

I wish each and every one of you a magnificent and joyous holiday season!
