Getting back into your routine

2015 is here. Your resolutions are made… and in some cases already forgotten. The Christmas decorations have been packed away… or in some cases put on the to-do list for next weekend. The last of the casseroles and cookies have been made, delivered, eaten, or frozen. Now we are back to our regular routine. When most of us emerge from the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, we take a look around as the dust settles and wonder why our holiday is just a blur, where that time off disappeared to, and why you don't feel more relaxed.

The Power of a Christmas Wish

Have you ever thought about what you might remember years from now about the Christmas we have just celebrated? I hope it will be something that makes you feel good as you recall the Christmas of 2014. Every year we spend hours looking for the perfect gift for friends and family. But most of the time it is not the gift that really matters. It is the spirit it is given in.

Challenge yourself with your New Year resolutions

Have you ever thought of the challenge many of us take on every new year? It is the tradition of making resolutions for the year we are about to enter. The calendar we live with turns the page for a new year on Jan. 1. Have you ever thought that almost always the world we face on Jan. 1 is the same one we left on Dec. 31? But the tradition of making New Year's Resolutions is a reminder that though the world might not change, we can change some things about our own lives.

Kwanzaa: Honoring community

It was during the peak of the civil rights movement that the cultural holiday of Kwanza was born. Unlike other similar holidays such as Hanukah and Christmas, Kwanzaa is not based upon religious association.
