This year will certainly be a different kind of Thanksgiving for most of us. There’s a good chance we won’t be able to reunite with family, and share the big, festive meal we all know and love.
While just thinking of an out-of-the-ordinary Thanksgiving might make you feel down, this year, it’s more important than ever to give thanks for what you do have, and find ways to connect with friends and family — even if it’s over Zoom.
The crisp autumn air, apples piling high, and leaves changing to vibrant shades of orange and gold — fall is here, and it’s one of the best times of the year (at least we think so!).
This fall may feel quite different with everything going on in the world right now. Your eyes might be glued to the news, giving you little time to notice the changing leaves right outside your window.
Oh, what a wild week this has been. If you’re like us, all the tension and chaos that’s come with the US elections and global pandemic has been hard on your body and mind. Your shoulders and back might feel stiffer, your head might feel foggier, and your heart might beat faster.
Because this week (and this year!) has taken such a toll on our physical and mental health, we want to encourage you this weekend, and moving forward, to be extra good to yourself.
Remember when you were a child, and you thought you could do anything? Whether that was learning to walk, climb a tree or become president, chances are you were bursting with optimism about what you could accomplish. You expected great things.
But now, as an adult, has some of that optimism vanished? How can we see the glass half full when we keep getting pummeled with stressful and depressing news?
Have you turned on the news lately and just felt … ugh? Or have you binged a podcast series that got you so worked up about what’s going on in the world, that you couldn’t sleep?
Welcome to 2020. It’s been a year, to say the least, and news and social media feeds seem to be getting worse and worse. But for some reason, most of us can’t look away.
There’s a lot of tension swirling around right now. Can you feel it too?
With so much heaviness happening in the world, it might feel like you’re not allowed to enjoy yourself and feel grateful and happy — especially without feeling guilty about it.
While it’s always important to acknowledge what’s going on around the world (we don’t live under rocks, after all!), you’re still allowed to take delight in things that make you smile and feel good.
Earlier this week we told you about our new EveryDay Happy Show podcast and today we have another exciting announcement to help you feel good. Drum-roll please …
Introducing the Feel-Good Challenge — 30 days of happiness, self-love, and ease.
We’d love to have you join us!
So many big, crazy things are happening right now that you may feel like what you do isn’t significant, or what you say doesn’t make an impact.
But you matter, today and every day. You matter to your friends. You matter to your family. You matter to your children (and fur babies!). You matter to the waiter you tip and the delivery person you greet with a smile. You matter to your coworkers, neighbors, and the charities you donate to.
There’s so much going on in the world right now and if you’re like our Savvy Team chances are you’re in need of some nourishment these days — and we’re not talking about the food variety. Just as you nourish your body with what you eat, drink, and how you exercise, it’s just as important to nourish your soul.
When your soul is nourished, you feel alive, joyful, and fulfilled. You’re also able to show up for others in a more present and loving way.
