1. Engage your mind with things that stimulate you; 2. Go for a walk and breathe in the sweet sights and sounds of nature; 3. Read books; 4. Book a weekend away; 5.

Most societies had and have a celebration of light at the darkest time of the year. It is a pattern followed by most of the world’s great religions. The religious reference is not only to the physical darkness of the sun being below the equator, but also the psychological darkness caused by uncertainty, loss, suffering of the body or the mind, broken relationships and the brokenness of many lives.By allowing the light of Christ to shine into our lives and bring comfort, guidance, courage, strength, we can change direction, start again and have cause for celebration.
