How to help de-stress the holiday season

Written by Healthy Living News. Posted in Taking Care of Your Life

Another holiday season is upon us, and that means it’s time to spend a small fortune on gifts, spend untold hours baking holiday treats, wrap a truckload of presents, transform your home into the perfect winter wonderland, and entertain like Martha Stewart on steroids (safely masked and socially distanced, of course), all while balancing your regular responsibilities of work and family.

Spiritually Speaking - We are the light of the world

Written by Sister Mary Thill. Posted in Taking Care of Your Life

After so much darkness these days, including COVID-19, the rancorous elections, social distancing, quarantining, loss of jobs, businesses closing, and so much more, I am looking forward to the holidays where we are once again reminded about the spiritual aspects of our lives where we can turn to our faith to find solace and hope for the future. We seem so mired in the fear of these past several months that it is time to come out of the darkness and look to the light. I love to think of us, all of us, the way Jesus speaks of us in the Gospels: We are the light of the world. He says that he is the light of the world and we too can be just such a light by being and doing good.

Written by Sister Mary Thill. Posted in Taking Care of Your Life

What a strange Thanksgiving celebration we will have this year, the year of the Covid-19 pandemic. I think many of us hoped that things would have returned to normal by this time, and it looks as if that won’t happen for several months into the new year. Do we really want to observe this cultural holiday after all we’ve been through? What do we have to be thankful for anyway?
