Everyone’s making their Christmas wish lists of all the gifts they hope to see under the tree this year. Toys, tablets, laptops, cameras, and clothes are many of the items most people are asking for, but there are some gifts in life that are so much better. Appreciate these gifts that you can give to yourself and receive through the help of your loved ones.

Happiness

As cliché as it sounds, one of the greatest gifts you can receive and keep all year is happiness. It’s the root of how we prosper in life and what helps us maintain motivation. Not every day is going to be a perfect day, but as long as you’re happy and optimistic, it’s easy to get through the difficult times. Remember to always smile about the positive and not frown too much about the negative. Don’t stress over situations that you cannot control. Everything happens for a reason and all things get better with time. Stay happy my friends.

Love

This is something that many people are always searching for in life and it can be found almost anywhere. The best place to find it? Family. Whether it be your parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles, or cousins, there’s always family members that share unconditional love. Family is where life begins and where love never ends. You can also find love through friends and a significant other. The people who support you and look out for your best interest are the ones who really love you and that is truly a gift.

Health

With all the diseases and viruses that circulate around this time of year, it's important to be thankful for your health and well being. There are many people in hospitals who would much rather be laying at home without feeling sick. It's simple to maintain your health through cleanliness, caution, drinking lots of water, and exercising. Being grateful for having good health is often overlooked especially for those who do not get sick much. A healthy body equals a healthy mind so always appreciate the gift of health and never take it for granted!

Financial Stability

Sometimes this is the hardest gift to receive. With the consumer world that we live in, it's hard to say "no" to all the items we love that we come across at our favorite stores. Although it's tempting to buy what you want, ask yourself if you really need it. The key to financial stability is to focus more on needs and not wants. If you don't have the money for it at that moment, don't spend it. You will only increase your debt and it won't be worth it in the long run. Give yourself the gift of financial stability by only spending on what you need.

The greatest part about all these gifts? They are costless and last a lifetime!

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

Morgan Wooten

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.
