There is no doubt the holidays are a magical season full of joy, beauty and giving. However, for many individuals, it can also cause grief, due to loss of a loved one, or anxiety due to get-togethers with family members that are not always easy to communicate with or the pressure to purchase an abundance of unnecessary gifts!
Here are a few of our favorite resources and guides for reducing stress and making the holidays merry and bright!

We are quickly approaching November and almost the end of 2017. Hard to believe isn't it? What may be even harder to believe is that those new year resolutions you had in mind in January are still absolutely obtainable. You still have over 60 days to change your life and with each new day, each new breath, a new opportunity!
We talk a lot on our blog about being present and in the moment, and some of you may ask, "How can I achieve my future goals and set goals while remaining present?" Eckhart Tolle, author of A New Earth has some interesting answers for us.
As Martin Luther King said,
"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."
This is one of our favorite quotes of the many that we share. In times like these especially, we need to be reminded that there is so much good in the world and around us. These small acts of kindness add up and compound to create so much light.
The Ellen DeGeneres Show has partnered with Cheerios to spread Ellen’s message of being kind to one another. Ellen and Cheerios are encouraging people around the world to participate in one million acts of good.
To share their acts of good, viewers can submit photos and write-in stories at this link or use #GoodGoesRound on social media.
Below are a few examples of the acts of kindness shared. Remember, these acts are going on every day, all around us. Be a part of the good, and take part of acts of kindness at home, in your workplace and when you are out and about.

With everything going on in the world, it can become emotionally and physically painful for empathetic people to process it all. Glennon Dole, author of Love Warrior, offers some powerful tips and insight.
Labels and words are extremely powerful and we often do not look past them, but it is essential in order to truly listen and hear each other.
A recent study showed just by labeling an issue "Democratic" or "Republican" even when the actual issue details are completely unknown by the opposing party, 80% of that opposing party rejected it right off the bat. That is how powerful labels and one simple word can be. How often in your own life to you immediately place judgement on something or someone instantly due to a label?
Times like these where so many tragedies are occurring simultaneously, it is more important than ever that we truly listen to each other before making an informed decision. Humans are more alike than different, and what can truly save the world in times of trauma and create healing, is being connected. We have seen this time and time again when a tragedy has happened. Individuals from all walks of life and backgrounds joining forces to save each other from the flood waters of hurricanes, or pulling one another to safety during the devastating shooting in Las Vegas.
This week, we encourage you to see past society's labels and see all of the goodness within each other. Remove the simple labels you place upon your family, your friends, your coworkers and even strangers. Truly listen to them and hear them and where they are coming from.
