Managing Your Holiday Stress Quick Hit List

Don't Loose Your Mind During the Season of Blessings

✅Don’t Holiday for your Pinterest Or Insta- focus on the hearts of your people at your address and not the ones who only know your IP address

✅Realistic Expectations of self and others

✅Ask your family what they would like to have and do during the time off and don’t be Ms Bossy Pants

✅Pray! Coffee & Chocolate! Pray! (Yes that’s a Method)

✅Lead with Love. Love is patient, kind, respectful, generous, selfless, hopeful, edifying, giving and receiving

✅Space for Grace- to pivot, be flexible, considerate to others needs

✅Laugh-Encourage laughter not perfection

✅Remember it could be the last holiday you spend with them so make it count

✅Smile and take in all the senses of touch, smell and audible, make sure to get fresh air and try to go for a family walk

✅Do what you can and let go of what you can’t 

✅Ask for help and let your family feel a part of the prep, no Heros here....JUST JESUS!!

✅Paper-plates, solo cups and store bought pies don’t mean you’re a horrible Host

✅Buy extra toilet paper, bandaids, oils, cough drops and batteries

Reasonable hours (boundaries)

You could do a ton of things! You could BE a ton of things but of all the things, BE YOU!!!! This holiday isn't for them...it's for US! Don't let the holidays overwhelm you with hustle and heartache, exhaustion and depleting self.
Keep it simple and keep Christ at the center of it all!!!

Holiday Travel Oils and Must Haves to Support Your Body and Your Mind

If the last few years haven't taught us much, two things are for sure: We sure do need to Love Like Jesus and We Must Have our Must Haves.

I don't know about where you live but I live in the Florida Keys. I had lived in Houston, Texas until these past 8 years close to any shopping mall, grocery store (shout out to THE BEST HEB), restaurant, gas station or clinic I could ever need. Here, we live by weather and AmazonIt's true.

When the world shut down, clinics closed, pharmacies lay empty shelves, and resources dwindled, I was forever grateful for my things to keep our family healthy most of all. In times of crisis, it's the toilet paper, water and medicines that seem to evaporate. I see this during hurricane season too.

I am a Mom, and maybe the need to be prepared with the Diaper Bag is just forever my vibe. I miss those days of having a valid excuse to have the Mary Poppins Bag of Hope...now

3 Basic Ways to Help Manage Stress for Yourself or Your Student

Not every person handles stress the same so be brave and have compassion enough to ASK!!! Don't assume they can handle it alone and don't need you. if it's YOU, ASK for some Love to diffuse your stress ball! 

It's really really hard to ask for support or a simple hug in the name of All Togetherness when you are the Peace Maker in the Home but I am challenging you this time to seek it out and let God bless you with Love through the hands and feet He has placed around you for such a time as this. Don't stuff your feelings. 

Pray, Praise and Pause!!! Receive the LOVE for the health of your soul. Tis the season to REJOICE! You've Got This!!! 

Overcoming Stress and Anxiety with Worship

You want to be happy but you can’t fake the pain. I get it.
This is for the person who needs someone to look them in the eyes and say …..

“It’s going to be okay. 
You are stronger than you think and feel. 
You’re not a lost cause. 
You are not a quitter, unless you quit. 
I know it hurts to breath. 
I know you can’t get control of your racing thoughts, but greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world. He will help you be still and give you that very breath."
The things you focus on will drain you or empower you so watch what you are doing in those dark moments. 
Breath, don’t bash. 
Calm, not chaos.
Meditate on Scripture, not secular theories. 
Stop asking why and worship. 
Worship the pain into praise. 
When you can’t sleep, worship. 
When you walk into chaos of circumstance, worship. 
When you feel like you’re drowning, worship. 
You’ve got this because He has you! Hold onto Him! Don’t give up!! Never forget you have an enemy looking for ways to shrink and sabotage you BUT GREATER is HE who is IN you than he who is in the world! 

Read the Psalms. 
Read Philippians 4. 
Read Romans 8. 
Read Genesis 1.
Pray and praise! I know it’s hard, but though we are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed. 
You are okay and you will have what you need for every next moment. Know that you’re never alone!! He sees you!! He loves you!!”

Be still and know what you know.
