Giving Thanks

I picked up a card for an acupuncture service today and on the rear it said “Let’s live healthy and happy” and I found myself saying out loud to the card , ‘yep that would be lovely thank you..’

In this week of giving thanks we have the perfect opportunity to check in with our loved ones and do a pulse check… how are we all doing? I am not talking just about sniffles and sore throats here, but how is the ‘health’ of the family as a whole? Is everyone doing well? Is there someone who needs a little more support? Is everyone happy?

I know some of you are probably thinking that opening an emotional can of worms over Thanksgiving dinner is about as appealing as a poke in the eye but it doesn’t have to be that way. You can simply ask people to to bring their thoughts of thanks to the table, everyone can do this whatever their age. Just ask your guests to share what they are thankful for with others at the table, this will spark conversation and if you listen well you will become pretty insightful.

I also request that you to take some time for self-care this week too. Please remember that the holidays are about being with our friends and family and not about having to be perfect. I assure you people have a much better time when they have a role so even if you have a tough time delegating during the rest of the year please make this a family affair and give everyone a job; meals always taste better when you have been responsible for part of its creation.

I personally thank you all for your continued feedback and generosity, have a wonderful holiday.
Much love
