Creating Positive Holiday Habits
It starts with a thought: what practices can I put in place to manifest my good intentions? Each company I’ve launched has focused on positive habit creation. Why? Because creating the right habits helps us achieve our goals. Since the holidays are very food focused, I like to start with what I can control in the kitchen.

Connection Over Consumption
During this time of year we can become concerned with consumption– of food, material goods, or other energies. However, the short days make it a wonderfully dark time that’s optimal for going inward. so, give yourself those quiet moments if and when you can. And of course, enjoy connecting with others if you are blessed with the opportunity. Remember, most of all, the holidays are about connection, not consumption.
