Stress Free Holiday Month

We almost had to laugh thinking that December is considered the Stress Free Holiday Month. But, it is. Give your parents some tips on staying stress-free this month.

  • Morning Meditation
  • Start a Gratitude Journal
  • Daily Exercise
  • Go Nature Bound
  • Just Say No!
Personalized Gifts Kids Can Make/Give

Christmas is a time of giving. But, there are a number of gifts your small child/preschooler can make/give that are super easy and don't require a lot of store-bought materials or complicated steps.

Motivation Rocks: Gather some rocks/stones from your yard or outside or in your neighborhood. Have your child paint and decorate the rocks. You may wish to write inspirational messages on your rocks and leave them around town: hospitals, nursing homes, WalMart, and even fast food restaurants.

Christmas Cards/Carols: Ask your child(ren) to make Christmas Cards with construction paper, colors or markers, and maybe an attached Candy Cane/Peppermint. Make a few or hundreds...deliver them to neighbors & friends, with caroling to make your loved one's Christmas extra special.

Postcard Santa: Photo on one side (doesn't need to be fancy) and a simple personal message on the other, these are quick, simple and easy to mail out.


We will be closed Monday through Tuesday, December 25th-26th in observance of Christmas! Happy Holiday!
