Christmas is just around the corner, and chances are that you're not ready. Okay, so maybe you're the 1% who's got everything bought and wrapped.

But, the rest of us still have plenty to do, and I want to give you 3 things to do that will help you enjoy the holiday season a little more.

1. Make a Plan - The first thing you need to do, if you haven't already, is to have a plan. You should have a list of people you need to buy for. Check off items as you purchase them, and make sure to keep track of receipts. Be careful to stay within  your budget for gifts. There's no joy in the holiday if you overspend. 

Once you've bought all the gifts, go ahead and wrap them. Don't wait till Christmas Eve.!!! Ask me how I know. I made that mistake several years ago, and it was not good.

Think about what you'll be serving for the holidays. Plan you menu, and make a grocery list. If you're having a large group, ask others to bring a dish. If you will be a guest, find out what you can bring.

I’m not a gadget girl, but there are a few kitchen items that are worth their weight in gold, and I use them on a regular basis. They each can be used in several ways, making them invaluable.

Sprinkle them generously in your smoothie, yogurt, granola, or on salads.

2. Mini Crock Pot

This is one of my absolute favorites because I use it practically every day. I put leftovers in the stainless steel container after dinner, refrigerate it, and take it to work in the morning. An hour before lunch, I plug it in. In no time I have a piping hot lunch.

3. Blendtec blender

My blender has a permanent place on my kitchen counter because I use it so often. I bought it several years ago since I was making smoothies every day. Bu...

When you're struggling with fatigue, people don't usually see the toll it's taking on their daily life. Undetected, it can lead to weight gain, depression, isolation, guilt, or thinking that you're just plain lazy.

Because it happens gradually, you don't realize that you're performing at less than your best. You notice that you're more tired than usual, but you chalk it up all the hours you're putting in at work.

You catch yourself  yawning in the middle of the afternoon, and you have absolutely no desire to do anything strenuous once you get home. Even when you get enough sleep, you never seem to feel well rested.

Few people realize what their lack of energy is doing to their everyday lives. It affects you mentally, physically, and emotionally and can cause problems in your relationships and at work. 

Sometimes, it may be seen as a sign of getting older, when in fact, it may be your body telling you there's a bigger problem.

Fatigue can be the result of problems with your thyroid...
