Black Friday! Have you been up since silly o’clock, logged on to your favourite online shopping store, credit card in hand ready to bag a bargain? Did you camp outside a high street store to be first in to grab your ‘must have’ items? Or, are you happy to let the whole day pass without spending a penny?

I am in the latter camp, having no desire, whatsoever to get caught up in the hype of Black Friday! Even though it is not just Friday any more, it seems to have taken up the whole week! It has taken me a long time to work out that a bargain is only a bargain if it is something you really need. How many times do we see ‘SALE’ or ‘REDUCED’ and automatically think ‘Oh! That’s a bargain, I’ll get it!’ only to put it away when we get home and forget about it? I have, loads of times!

Christmas time brings us more than enough stress and anxiety so why do we put ourselves through even more? Probably because we are ‘told’ we ‘need’ the latest gadgets, the bigger, better, faster items that ‘everyone’ will want this year. Our homes have to decorated perfectly, we have to have a wide selection of food and drink ‘just in case’ someone pops in, Christmas Dinner needs to planned like a military operation and then, the children come along with their letters to Santa, long lists of the most expensive ‘must have’ toys and games which we read with an increasingly heavy heart. How much will it all cost? How can we do everything in time? My head is spinning just writing this!

Stop the bus! I want to get off!

All these negative thoughts and emotions. All this guilt, worry, anxiety, stress. It’s no wonder tempers fray, we are tired, yet are unable to get a good night’s sleep. If this sounds like you or someone you know, Emotional Freedom Technique can help you deal with these issues and the negative emotions causing them. Reiki can help calm the mind and body, bringing a sense of balance back to your life.

So, are you ready to get off the bus too? Ready to enjoy Christmas relaxed and calm? Well, you can. I have appointments available to help you? I will also be launching a brand-new group for anyone who is serious about wanting to change their life for the better in the run up to Christmas.
