Tips for a more Tranquil Christmas

How can you make your Christmas even more meaningful this year?  We thought we’d like to talk a bit about happiness.  Have you ever asked yourself where happiness comes from?   Sometimes Christmas can become about buying lots of gifts in the pursuit of making yourself or others happy, but happiness is a state of mind, and so cannot come directly from a gift, which is quite clearly not a state of mind.   That means (luckily) that happiness doesn’t depend on physical stuff - happiness can be increased merely by focusing your mind on more positive thought patterns.  Instead of an...
