Words of Wisdom by Katherine Nordal

The holidays are about more than presents. This is a time to celebrate family and friends and to take time to relax and enjoy each other.

Take-away messages

  • Don’t get distracted by all the hype going around. Immerse yourself in the celebration and family time!
  • You do not need to follow the buying/consuming routines set by society! Know what you need, know what’s important to you and your family, and enjoy your time with them!
