Practicing a mindful attitude during the holidays can reduce stress. Begin journaling mindfulness and these other techniques to reduce stress. But first, know that you are not alone if you find your stress level rising as autumn settles in and the holiday season looms large? A 2015 survey by Healthline found that almost two-thirds of people report that their stress level increased throughout the holiday season. I found it particularly interesting that even more women than men reported higher stress during the holiday season. What’s the difference? Could it be because we get carried away with trying to pull off the “perfect” holiday each year?
no one makes delicious apple crisp like my grandma did. My grandma passed when I was only 13, so I can only imagine how much I loved her homemade apple crisp when I was little. I wish I had stronger memories of making it with her, but since I don’t, I can look forward to passing grandma’s apple crisp recipe along to my grandkids. Her old fashioned apple crisp recipe is so simple and easy with only five ingredients. And even better, I get to use some of my favorite kitchen tools!
