How’s it going out there? When I recently flipped my calendar over to November (yes, I have a paper wall-hanging calendar in my home… two actually!), I was in shock. How could a year that has gone so slow at times already be almost over? I really do love this time of year: I love the holidays. I love the traditions, I love the food, I love the family and friends. The holidays this year will change for many. Did you know that creating change is a main reason why I am called to bring organization and productivity into a person’s life? Change is different, and it can be challenging, exciting, nerve-racking and freeing to embrace change. Openly communicate about your expectations around the holidays and any changes that might/might not occur. Be gentle to yourself, and be kind to others.
Our friends over at Therapy Works put together a great infographic with information about ways to help your anxious children. “Children can get anxiety just like adults… If you recognize that your child is feeling anxiety on a regular basis, there are coping skills and tools that you can use to help them manage their anxiety when the symptoms are present.”
If you are looking for some ways to shake things up in your life, I encourage you to try some thing new! November is National Peanut Butter Lovers Month, so with that in mind, why not try something new? Let’s celebrate with 30 recipes so you can have something peanut-y and butter-y, something comforting and indulgent or exotic and flavorful every day this month.
