‘Tis the season for cooler weather, colored lights, holiday aromas, nostalgic music, filling meals and heart-felt gifts. It can also be a time of indulgence — too much food, too many mugs of “cheer,” too much money spent, and too many house guests. These all contribute to too much stress.


As a military spouse, we can easily over do it. Either we’re traveling to see family, hosting company, trying to make our new place feel just as homey as the last one, or shopping ‘til we drop to find the best deals on gifts without busting our budget.

In order to feel your best and brightest, consider treating yourself to some special pampering this season. The merrier you are, the easier it will be to spread seasonal joy in your home and with loved ones.
