Happy Holidays!

by elizabethwiener on December 22, 2010

I don’t know about the rest of you, but as much as I love the holidays – they wear me out! Not sure if I’m just getting old, but I can’t seem to do the seven nights of holiday parties in a row the way I used to. Two nights ago I couldn’t sleep – I think the waitress accidentally gave me regular coffee instead of decaf., or perhaps it was the winter solstice lunar eclipse – so last night I crashed at home.  I watched “Tiny Furniture” written by and starring Lena Dunham – if you haven’t seen it yet, I highly recommend!  It’s hilarious and poignant at the same time.  I couldn’t believe this girl is only 24!  I hear she has an HBO show in the works… I have a feeling the world will be seeing a lot more of her. Check out the trailer here:

Here’s a good article about energy that I think is especially relevant for this time of year.

Another important thing I’ve learned over the years is to recognize my limits. I love being around people, but I’ve found that I need to take breaks in between socializing. I find that even though I can manage going from one event to the next, I’m much better and fresher when I can take even an hour of down time to re-group and re-charge my battery. Check out this personality quiz to help you determine what works best for you.

Newest obsession this week -Fine and Raw Chocolate. Not only is it raw and super healthy – unprocessed cacao has 10x the amount of antioxidants as blueberries! – it tastes amazing! I tried the crystals and sea salt bar, and it had just the right amount of salt + sweet combination. I’m officially hooked.

Loving this site that lets you personalize your own Santa video.

Happy Holidays!
