MIDWEEK MANTRA

POSITIVE THOUGHTS AND ACTIONS TO HELP YOU MAKE IT TO THE END OF THE WEEK.

TRUE CHRISTMAS SPIRIT

AS THE TEMPERATURE DROPS AND THE NIGHTS ARE DRAWING IN LETS TURN OUR THOUGHTS TO CHRISTMAS. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE CHRISTMAS MORE THAN ANYONE I KNOW BUT MANY PEOPLE ARE FULL OF DREAD AT THIS TIME OF YEAR. TIME, MONEY, FAMILY ISSUES, COOKING ARE ALL ISSUES FOR MANY PEOPLE.

THIS YEAR LOWER YOUR EXPECTATIONS. I KNOW YOU WILL EXPECT ME TO SAY THAT PRESENTS ARE NOT IMPORTANT. WHILST ITS TRUE THAT I DONT THINK YOU NEED TO SPEND A LOT OF MONEY, GIVING GIFTS IS VERY IMPORTANT. BUY OR MAKE A PERSONAL GIFT FOR SOMEONE TO SHOW YOU KNOW THEM WELL AND APPRECIATE WHO THEY ARE E.G BOOKS, A SUBSCRIPTION, HOMEMADE BISCUITS OR CAKES. SMALL PERSONAL GIFTS CAN BE MORE MEMORABLE.

THINK BACK TO YOUR OWN FAVOURITE GIFT MINE WAS MY FIRST (70P) VOGUE MAGAZINE AT AGE 15. I STILL HAVE IT TODAY. YOUR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN WILL CERTAINLY REMEMBER MORE MEANINGFUL WELL CHOSEN PRESENTS RATHER THAN THE EXTRAVAGANT ONES. SPENDING TIME WRAPPING THEM BEAUTIFULLY CAN ALSO MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE.

TIME IS ANOTHER WAY TO GIVE. VISITING PEOPLE AT THIS TIME OF YEAR. TAKING THEM TO CAROL SERVICES, LUNCH OR TAKING LUNCH TO THEM. SPEND QUALITY TIME WITH THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE SHOWN YOU LOVE AND KINDNESS THIS LAST YEAR RATHER THAN PARTYING WITH STRANGERS.

SET AN EXTRA PLACE AT THE CHRISTMAS DAY DINING TABLE FOR A STRANGER THAT YOU KNOW MAYBE LONELY. START OPENING YOUR EYES TO ELDERLY PEOPLE THAT LIVE IN YOUR STREET.

THIS IS THE YEAR TO THINK ABOUT CHRISTMAS DIFFERENTLY. LOW KEY , RELAXING AND ENJOYABLE.

MERRY CHRISTMAS

JOJO STYLELIST TIP : YOU WILL BE REMEMBERED BY NOT WHAT YOU DID , NOR WHAT YOU SAID, NOR WHAT YOU SPENT BUT…….HOW YOU MADE THEM FEEL.
