November is a great time to begin to think about how you would like Christmas to be in your home. So often we can get a little stressed about the holiday season because if we’re not paying attention to our actions, we can very easily get wrapped up in the hype of Christmas and the image of what a perfect Christmas should look like. We can find ourselves living outside of the moment and partaking in often mindless activities such as buying even more decorations, even more food and even more elaborate gifts in an effort to obtain that Christmas feeling.

In the end, what we often experience is the physical stress of trying to do too much and the financial pressure of January’s credit card bill.
