Do you go through stages when you enjoy one particular activity? When you aren't in the mood to do much of anything else for fun but that? Nothing else really cuts it? That's what has happened to me. 🎄💻 Other than my work, which I love, the only thing that really seems fun to me is watching Christmas movies. Yep, we have been watching Christmas movies almost every evening since we went to New York for my mother's funeral. I find them funny, comforting. We have never started watching these movies as early as we have this year. We probably won't decorate until the middle of December and it will be minimal most likely. I just don't feel like doing that this year. But the movies--I can't get enough of them. We have over 40 of them on DVD and hope to watch most of them between now and January 6. So, do you have a particular activity you can't get enough of lately? What is it? Do you binge watch Christmas/Holiday movies? Which ones are your favorites? I love the classics, and the newer Hallmark ones. 🎄💻 #gotoactivity, #favoriteactivity, #Christmasmovies, #holidaymovies, #bingewatching, #findingcomfort, #funactivities, #hallmarkchristmasmovies, #Christmasclassics, #christmastraditions, #nochristmasdecorations, #skippingchristmas, #acnlifecoach, #southernutah, #lifecoach, #lifecoaching, #quietchristmas, #spinabifida, #gowithin,

How is everyone this evening?
I have found the shops are starting to get busy so I'm not going near any till after Christmas and I'm hibernating here in front of the fire with tea! ⛄️
I'm starting a new crochet project. I find it really relaxing and you can learn how to do it on YouTube tutorials. I use organic cotton from Sostrene Grene.
Christmas can be filled with a lot of stress for people. Regardless of your faith Christmas is everywhere in the western world. I like to keep it very simple and not get caught up in the commercialism. One way to avoid the waste is to make gifts. I have subjected family and friends to my creations for years 😁
Let me know how you get through the festive season and how you keep waste low and pop over here anytime you need some relaxation too. I'm all ears 🙏

Calm celebrations ✨
I’m creating the guides for my Calm Celebrations course at the moment, which is making me reflect afresh on how our family will be celebrating all of the festivals - Halloween, bonfire night, Chanukah, Christmas, New Year - coming up over the next few months.
Rather than having an exact idea of how I want things to look, I’m choosing to focus on how I want these celebrations to feel. What values do I want them to reflect? How can they add meaning, joy, and connection to our lives? What do I want to say ‘no’ to - and what does this mean we can say ‘yes’ to?
Personally I’m all about slow, quiet celebrations, with a long lead up and a gentle wind down, with lots of small things gradually building up to a feeling of festivity.
What about you? How does your family celebrate birthdays and holidays? Are you a big party, make allll the food, get the whole extended family over kind of person? Or do you prefer a simple candlelit meal with a cake and a few of your loves? Maybe a mix of both?
(PS. Due to demand, I released some extra spaces on the course today. They’ve pretty much all sold already but there are a handful left if you’re quick! Link in profile.)

At last I get some crafty time! My room is back together after painting, but now I have to wait for a couple items I ordered to arrive before I can finish my craft room project. Guess I’ll just have to make a card!
This is one of my favorite Christmas stamp sets, “Quiet Christmas” by Hello Bluebird.
