Celebrate the festive season – have all the fun without the financial stress.

Give of your time, instead of expensive gifts.

The festive season can turn into a mad rush of shopping, office parties, and ‘silly season’ preparation and celebration. This year, shop less and spread more of the wonder and the magic of the season by making your own gifts and personalising them with a special message for each person. Then wrap them beautifully and give them with love.

Share the cost – bring, prepare, and party together.

Take the stress out of your seasonal celebrations and multiply the fun! Get everyone involved – family, friends and kids – and celebrate together at home, on the beach or at your favourite picnic spot.

Part of the fun is in the process of planning and preparing together.

Pay special attention to how lovingly and thoughtfully you prepare your part of the meal – and don’t forget to include the kids in the preparation. They’ll love it. After all, it is the season to be jolly – together!

Show you care for your loved ones with time and attention.

There’s nothing that strengthens the bond between family and friends like quality time and shared experiences. Be there, laugh, play games, be silly, celebrate yourself and the people you love – even invite people you hardly know. This is a fine way to celebrate and honour those you care for.

Spread the love of the season to those who may be lonely.

The time of year when family and friends celebrate together can be a very lonely time for some,

Express the goodwill of the season and connect with those who may feel alone, sad and left out. They are in need of your kindness. Find places in your community where you can volunteer your help. Spend an hour of your time with someone in an old-age home in your area, bring joy to a sick or orphaned child, or simply include a lonely neighbour in your festivities.

Be kind to your pocket, don’t max your credit cards.

Instead of over-spending on frivolous gifts to feel loved, appreciated or esteemed, rather ‘show up’ – be present and mindful and remember that you don’t need to ‘buy’ love.

During the festive season the temptation to spend is everywhere, in stores, on television and on social media. This year, focus on the people you love instead of the presents you can buy. Give them your time, attention, and care – let them know they live in your heart.

Seeing the light in the darkness

Start your day by scrolling through your Newsfeed and you’ll probably have at least 10 reasons to roll over and hide under the covers. There’s lots of suffering and struggle in the world, not to mention your personal challenges. Although you can reduce your exposure to news of suffering (actually don’t start your day with your newsfeed), suffering is still inevitable.

Respect your body

Respect your body

It’s safe to say we’ve all been there, you are tired, so you skip making dinner and eat an unhealthy snack instead. You have a night out with friends and skip the gym the next morning. When work piles up, the first thing that suffers is sleep. The problem is, the more often this happens, the more your health is affected.

Cultivating self-respect through gratitude

Cultivating self-respect through gratitude

R.E.S.P.E.C.T! Yes, it’s a well-known song and a word often used when it comes to teaching children how to interact with adults, but there is more to it than just being a catchy tune. Respect is effectively the glue that holds relationships together. It can be defined as “esteem for, or a sense of the worth, or excellence of a person, a personal quality, or ability”.

Nurture your inner child, no matter your age

Nurture your inner child, no matter your age

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.’ A cliché? Yes, but there may just be a dot of truth to it. Everyone knows that play is good for kids. It promotes physical and mental development and provides an opportunity for healthy social interaction. But as kids get older, time for free play gets less, until adulthood, when it just about disappears altogether.

Is addiction ruining your family?

Is addiction ruining your family?

We usually think of addiction as something extreme; associated with drugs, alcohol or substances, but you can become addicted to many different things.
For many years experts believed that only alcohol and certain drugs could lead to addiction.
