6 Wonderful Non Traditional Eco-Friendly Christmas Gift Ideas

I really don’t think I would have made a great hippie. My parents were decent at it I suppose but I am too much of an activist. I know hippies were activists in their own right  (some of them anyway) but I am blessed/cursed with a unique combination of being conservative and liberal, feminist yet still finding the value of a woman caring for children and staying at home, a Christian but not religious, oh my gosh, it makes my head spin sometimes when trying to decide where I stand on an issue! But phooey on all of that right now! Let’s talk Christmas. Let’s talk Christmas on a budget. Let’s talk Christmas with meaning and depth and gifts that have a lasting impact! Here are my top 6 Wonderful Non Traditional Eco/Human Friendly Christmas Gift Ideas-

Why & How to Take Peppermint Oil

Young Living Peppermint Oil has been a life saver for me. I have IBS and suffer from a lot of bloating and digestive issues and when I discovered that I had something like this right under my nose (as a Young Living Consultant) that would help me so much I was overjoyed! Digestive issues SUCK! I also drink peppermint tea.

There are few ways to benefit from the oil. One is simply put a few drops in a small of water and gulp it. Other ways include putting 2 to 3 drops in your hands, rub them together, cup our hands over your nose and inhale throughout the day as needed. For topical use you can apply a single drop under your nose, apply 8 to 10 drops neat or diluted 50:50 with water and rub on your stomach. AND of course in a diffuser! Making your home smell wonderful and you feel happy happy and better!

The Basics of Branding

Branding is one of the most important aspects of any business, large or small, retail or B2B. An effective brand strategy gives you a major edge in increasingly competitive markets. But what exactly does “branding” mean? How does it affect a small business like yours?

Simply put, your brand is your promise to your customer. It tells them what they can expect from your products and services, and it differentiates your offering from your competitors’. Your brand is derived from who you are, who you want to be and who people perceive you to be.

Are you the innovative maverick in your industry? Or the experienced, reliable one? Is your product the high-cost, high-quality option, or the low-cost, high-value option? You can’t be both, and you can’t be all things to all people. Who you are should be based to some extent on who your target customers want and need you to be.

The foundation of your brand is your logo. Your website, packaging and promotional materials–all of which should integrate your logo–communicate your brand.

My All Time Favorite Artist

I can not think of anyone in the music industry that has such a long career impacting their audience like Toby Mac. I’ve been listening to every single song, purchasing every single CD, attending every concert near me since I was 19. I’m 46! Ya!

For Toby, making every moment count is about more than just saying it out loud. Whether he’s at home with his wife and five children, mentoring new artists, recording in the studio or on the road with his band Diverse City, Toby’s heart for collaboration is rooted in his belief that no matter where we’ve come from, we are better together then we are alone.

Originally hitting the scene as a part of the dynamic trio DC Talk in the 80’s with equally admirable Michael Tate and Kevin Max, the band reached across creative boundaries and stood firm in their love for Christ and equality, deeply inspiring others to love.

I would really love for you to learn more about this amazing artist and I love what he says-

“I don’t want to gain the whole world and lose my soul.”

It’s Quite Alright To Go With The Flow

It’s ok to be fluid! Alright alright alright! It’s wonderful to set goals and plan but it’s ok to fluid and go with the flow too. It just depends on how you are. I’ve always been more ok I’m doing this oh! No I’m gonna go do that now, just depending on what’s happening or what’s come up. Raising a child with autism has made me have to be that way and I’ve kind of always felt like that’s not good to be that way no I need to plan it all out and follow it perfectly but that’s not me. And that’s ok. Feeling good about myself or you feeling good about yourself is what’s gonna lead to better productivity anyway and help you enjoy life  more! So yes, set goals, make a plan, then allow yourself to work through that your way. You’ll actually get more done.
