Beating the Black Friday Blues
Known to many as Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving can be a pitfall for a variety of reasons – least of which are the crowds at the mall. Whether you’re planning on a shopping extravaganza or a quiet day at home, here’s what not to do!
Stuff Your Emotions
Understandably, family situations can be stressful. But if you’re an emotional eater, the last thing you want to do is try to squash your feelings with fistfuls of left overs. Make it a point to be measured about your intake. If that means finding a way to express your emotions – or leaving early rather than getting riled up, go for it. You’ve got to be your own number one priority and you don’t need to head into the holidays feeling out of control and worse for the wear from the start.
Shop ‘Til Your Bank Balance Drops!
It’s easy to overdo it in the face of good deals – and Black Friday is filled with them. However, rather than buying up everything you see for fear of missing a deal (or spending on foolishly fancy things just because they seem momentarily within your means), remember that gift giving is not about quantity. It’s about expressing emotion. A little, well thought out present goes a lot further than a whole host of hastily purchased trinkets.
“Know that within your spiritual core you deserve abundance. Stay away from people who say otherwise. Take real action to make your goals happen. If you’re thinking about, but not taking steps in the direction of abundance, you’ll usually end up disappointed.” – William ext. 5131
Forget What You’re Grateful For
Sure, the day of thanks may be over, giving way to the spirited season, but at the holidays more than ever, it’s vital to remember what you’re truly grateful for. Your friends, your family, your kids, your pet, your lover… whatever or whomever it is, don’t hesitate to let them know, now and always, how lucky you feel to have them in your life. No to do list is more important than putting time into the things and people you care about – spending time with them is a gift that keeps on giving.
“Food is a wonderful healer. Thanksgiving is a celebration of sharing. Cooking and preparing food for or with one another is a great way to heal oneself by healing others. If you live far from you family or don’t have family consider hosting an ‘Orphan Thanksgiving.’ You know other people who have no where to go or be that day. Invite them and welcome anyone they may know to join in. Make it a potluck to cut down on expense! You can do the same thing for Christmas!” – Chloe ext. 9421
