To help us get ready, the Junior and Senior Concert Bands had a very successful full day band clinic at the Red Deer College on Oct. 26th. We met with professional clinicians all morning where we learned specific skills on our instruments and then we had a guest conductor in the afternoon that helped us put together a musical selection. The clinicians and guest conductor were pleased with our student’s behavior and ability to learn. They even extended an open invitation for us to come work with them at the college anytime! Congratulations, concert band students! We would like to extend a huge THANK YOU to FAMS and the

RAY PRINS, MLA LACOMBE PONOKA Christmas Greetings As this Christmas season once again is upon us, we need to reflect on the many blessings that surround us. Like no other time of year, the holidays help us to focus on our relationships with family and friends and to be truly grateful for all we have. It is also a time to reach out to those in need and to lend a helping hand. This past year has been one of many changes and challenges - both for the province and for individuals within the Lacombe-Ponoka Constituency. We have just completed another full session in the Legislature and as your M.L.A. I want to assure you that I am committed to all my constituents and will continue to work hard on your behalf. I appreciate hearing your views, concerns and input on the many issues that we face in rural Alberta. Many tough decisions were made over this past year and as we approach 2010, I am confident these decisions have set the course for a more secure future in Alberta - our province.

It Pays to Advertise

As you celebrate this Christmas season, it is my hope that you will remember God's greatest gift of all - his son Jesus Christ. On behalf of my wife Pauline and myself, have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

A lion met a tiger as they drank beside a pool Said the tiger, “Tell me why you’re always roaring like a fool?” “That’s not foolish,” said the lion with a twinkle in his eye. “They call me King of all the beasts, it pays to advertise!” A rabbit heard them talking and ran home like a streak, He thought he’d try the lion’s plan, but all he did was squeak! A fox came to investigate and had dinner in the woods – The Moral is “Never advertise unless you’ve got the goods!”

Redefining Health Throw Away Your Scale Health is not a numerical concept and cannot be defined using statistics. Human beings, however, tend to want to quantify well-being into easily understandable figures. We feel compelled to ascribe numbers to every aspect of wellness, from the qualities of our food to our fitness levels to the physical space we occupy. As a consequence of social pressures, we turn our attention away from health and focus instead on the most contentious of these figures—weight—checking our scales to see how we measure up to our peers and role models. Yet each of us is equipped to gauge our relative healthfulness without any equipment whatsoever. When we have achieved a state of wellness, we feel buoyant and energetic. Some of us are naturally slim, while others will always be curvy. No matter what our weight, we can use the cues we receive from our physical and mental selves to judge how healthy we really are. When you throw away your scale, you commit to a lifestyle that honors the innate wisdom that comes from within your body and within your mind. It is logical to examine how you feel while considering your health—a strong, fit, and well-nourished individual will seldom feel heavy, bloated, or fatigued. If you have concerns regarding your weight, remind yourself that at its proper weight, your body will feel buoyant and agile. Movement becomes a source of joy. Sitting, standing, walking, and bending are all easy to do because your joints and organs are functioning as they were meant to. When you are physically healthy, your mind will also typically occupy a place of well-being. Mental clarity and an ability to focus are two natural traits of whole-self health. Surprisingly, promoting this type of easy-to-discern wellness within yourself takes no special effort outside of satisfying your hunger with nourishing, wholesome foods and moving your body. The numbers you see on the scale, while nominally informative, can prevent you from reaching your healthful eating goals by giving you a false indicator of health. You will know when you have achieved true health because every fiber of your being will send you signals of wellness. When you choose to listen to these signals instead of relying on the scale, your definition of well-being will be uniquely adapted to the needs of your body and of your mind.

Guiding News by Gale Richardson The Dec. 1 meeting saw 3 Sparks, 2 Brownies, 1 Guide and a Guider enrolled. They each made their promise, received their enrolment pin, program book and a badge scarf. Dec. 2 the older girls helped serve and clean up at the Seniors’ Christmas Supper, and all the girls were there to provide entertainment with poems and songs after the supper. Dec. 8 was the Christmas meeting. The girls made a gift for their parents. Have you ever melted an old 33 1/3 record in the oven?

The Impossible Dream Right in Front of You When it comes to the things we want, there always seems to be an endless list. No matter how many times we get something off that list, we add new things to replace it. In life, this drama of wanting and getting and wanting is all part of the dance. The things we want motivate us to get up and get them. And yet, at the same time, we can torment ourselves with our wanting, especially when we want something we can’t have or can’t find. It is in cases like these that it might be fruitful to entertain the idea that maybe what you really want is right in front of you. Maybe you are using this desire you can’t fulfill to distract you from truly engaging the blessings you already have. It may seem like that doesn’t make sense, yet we do it all the time. It may be easier to see in other people than to see it in ourselves. We have all heard our friends wishing they were more this or less that, and looking at them we see clearly that they are everything they are wishing they were. We know people who have wonderful partners and yet envy you yours. We wish we could give these people a look at their situations from our perspective so that they could see that what they want really is right in front of them. It’s not too far-fetched to consider that we might be victims of the same folly. It can be scary to have what we want. We get caught up in the chase and forget to enjoy the beauty right in front of us—like a child who never wants the toy she has in her hand but always the one just out of her reach. Take a moment today to consider the many things you are holding in the palm of your hand and how you might best play with them.

Everything You Do Matters The Ripple Effect In a world of six billion people, it’s easy to believe that the only way to initiate profound transformation is to take extreme action. Each of us, however, carries within us the capacity to change the world in small ways for better or worse. Everything we do and think affects the people in our lives, and their reactions in turn affect others. As the effect of a seemingly insignificant word passes from person to person, its impact grows and can become a source of great joy, inspiration, anxiety, or pain. Your thoughts and actions are like stones dropped into still waters, causing ripples to spread and expand as they move outward. The impact you have on the world is greater than you could ever imagine, and the choices you make can have far-reaching consequences. You can use the ripple effect to make a positive difference and spread waves of kindness that will wash over the world. Should the opportunity arise, the recipient of a good deed will likely feel compelled to do a good deed for someone else. Someone feeling the effects of negative energy will be more likely to pass on that negative energy. One act of charity, one thoughtful deed, or even one positive thought can pass from individual to individual, snowballing until it becomes a group movement or the ray of hope that saves someone’s life. Every transformation, just like every ripple, has a point of origin. You must believe in your ability to be that point of origin if you want to use the ripples you create to spread goodness. Consider the effect of your thoughts and actions, and try to act graciously as much as possible. A smile directed at a stranger, a compliment given to a friend, an attitude of laughter, or a thoughtful gesture can send ripples that spread among your loved ones and associates, out into your community, and finally throughout the world. You have the power to touch the lives of everyone you come into contact with and everyone those people come into contact with. The momentum of your influence will grow as your ripples moves onward and outward. One of those ripples could become a tidal wave of positivity. Source: DailyOM.com

We would like to thank the Delburne Fire Department, our friends and neighbhours, for all the help and kindness shown to us at the time of our house fire. A special thanks to the passerby who came in to alert us; he shut off the power and gas, and even rescued our dog from the burning building. We will be eternally grateful to everyone. Ken & June Campbell THANK YOU We would like to thank Stettler Hospital and home care for their compassion and care for Wayne before his passing. We would also like to thank the Bashaw Funeral Home and Pastor Jim Sturgeon for Wayne's service. Also, the Hickling Ladies Club, Mirror Legion and Ladies Auxiliary for the lovely lunch at the service. A special thank-you to all of our family, friends and neighbours for your support, food, flowers, donations, phone calls, cards and visits. It means so much to all of us at this sad and difficult time. The recent snow removal by the neighbours is also greatly appreciated. Eunice Matier and family

A Practical Joke It’s a marvelous, wonderful, wise, loving, practical joke. Christmas! The nativity. There’s God, down through the centuries, listening to the prophecies about the Messiah. Some of them were wonderful and beautiful and spoke the mind of God. Others thundered away about the Conqueror, the one who’d come in on a white horse, with sword and shield, a leader that would be better and tougher than King David. So God gave them the gift they so badly needed. But not the gift they expected. It was King David II they wanted. It was a tiny baby they got. What a hoot! They wanted power. So God gave them the power of weakness. They wanted a conqueror. So God gave them love that conquers all. That must have been good for a heavenly chuckle or perhaps even a belly laugh, if a belly laugh is possible for a God who is spirit. It was not the laughter of derision. It was the laughter of a loving, gentle parent waking up long before the kids on Christmas morning, waking up in anticipation of the face of the child when that special gift is opened, the child who receives so much more than it ever dared ask for in the letter to Santa. And the laughter of God is the laughter of a pleased-as-punch parent who receives the Christmas thank-you hug of a delighted child. The joke comes back every year. From “Sermon Seasonings,” by Ralph Milton, Wood Lake Books, 1997

MARY ELLEN'S MUSINGS............ The Season for Sharing This is certainly a winter to tell grandchildren about! “I remember back in ’09...” It’s like the stories heard at grandparents knees which expand with each telling!

The Wii Is Coming!

For interest’s sake I questioned the Silent One with regards to the deepest snowdrift he could remember, and it seems all they ever did was work. No exploring the white wilderness to see if it was really true that: “Walking on snowdrifts was dangerous . . . You could fall in and nobody will find you until spring . . . so DON’T walk on snow banks!” (That was what I heard every time I went outside at my childhood home). When, or if, one fell in - sure breathing was a bit tricky for a few minutes - we all survived!

The Wii is coming to the Municipal Library!! Compete with your friends, or play on your own. Either way, get ready for some awesome fun!! Until January 2, 2010! Games include: Guitar Hero III, Wii Fit, Wii Sports, Dance Dance Revolution, and many more!

I’m glad we’re having ourselves a more traditional winter. We need to toughen up and remember what being a true Albertan really means. Like being snowed in for three weeks – never mind running out of groceries and fuel for the lamps and lanterns, but having to hitch up the old team to see the livestock got fed twice a day and how about keeping the fire going in the old tankheater keeping the water tank thawed until every animal had its fill? Good times? Depends on how you remember them. The joy is in the telling.

Something’s Happening Saturday’s!

This being the season for sharing, I’d like to share the meaning of the Twelve Days of Christmas. Whatever does a partridge in a pear tree have to do with the season? And what about those leaping frogs, and swimming swans and ladies milking, what’s with that?

Check Out What’s Happening For FREE!

Kids aged 2 to 8, Come Join the fun at the Municipal Library every Saturday from 12-1 pm! Be entertained with Puppet Theatre, Story Time, Crafts, and Cyber Games! (All kids must be accompanied by a parent) After School Cyber Mystery Club! Calling all Mystery lovers aged 5-18! After School from 4-5pm every Tuesday, come on down to the Municipal Library for some super sleuthing! Play mystery cyber games, magic tricks, mystery board games, solve mystery stories, read mystery books, and write your own mysteries for others to solve! Each week will challenge you to work together and use your creativity and brainpower to gain mystery-solving skills! Seniors Computer Basics

In England between 1558 -1829 Roman Catholics were not permitted to openly practice their faith. This catechism song was written for young Catholics with two levels of meaning; surface and hidden. Each element in the carol has a code word that youngsters could easily remember. -The partridge in the pear tree is Jesus Christ. -Two Turtle doves were the Old and New Testament. -Three French Hens stood for faith, hope and love. -Four Calling birds were the four gospels; Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. -Five Golden Rings recalled the first five books of the Old Testament. -Six Geese a-laying stood for the six days of creation. -Seven Swans a-swimming were the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit: prophesy serving, teaching, exhortation, contribution, leadership and mercy. -Eight Maids a-milking were the 8 Beatitudes. -Nine Ladies dancing were the 9 Fruits of the Holy Spirit: Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self Control. -Ten Lords a-leaping were the 10 commandments. -Eleven Pipers piping stood for the 11 faithful disciples. -Twelve Drummers drumming symbolized the 12 points of belief in the Apostles Creed.

Learn all about e-mail, web surfing, Word document, and basic computer skills for FREE! Every Saturday from 10-11am, or prebook a time more convenient for you! All ages are welcome! It’s never too late to learn!

Keep this in mind the next time you hear The Twelve Days of Christmas, may it bring you extra good cheer and appreciation of our freedom to worship openly.

The Library Needs Your Support!

An Indiana candy maker wanted to make a candy that would be a witness for his Saviour, so he made the Christmas Candy Cane. He incorporated several symbols; the birth, ministry, and death of Jesus Christ.

The Municipal Library has undergone some serious expansion and we need you to participate in enjoying this beautiful facility! Take advantage of some of our FREE programs, buy a membership (now only $10), READ a book or magazine, or just stop by and have a coffee or tea! We’d love to see you!

What does the Christmas Candy Cane signify to you? Anything special? For it really has special meaning:

First he formed a stick of pure white, hard candy symbolizing the Virgin Birth and the sinless nature of Jesus. The hard candy symbolizes the Solid Rock, the foundation of the Church, and the firmness of the promises of God. The candy was formed into a “J” to represent Jesus, who came to earth as our Savoir. Turn it over it represents the staff of the Good Shepherd. The candy was somewhat plain, so the candy maker stained it with three small red stripes, representing the stripes of the scourging Jesus received prior to His crucifixion for our healing. The large red stripe represents the shedding of His blood on the cross for our salvation. If you get one that also has a green stripe, this represents the gift of everlasting life – Jesus gift to us from the Cross. May this blessed season shower you with an abundance of the precious things in life: Health, Happiness, Enduring Friendships and the great Freedoms that are ours.

The Morning After the Night Before Author unknown

The Village is pleased to honour Elmer Klein. For many years, Elmer has delighted kids of all ages as “Santa.” It all started in l978. Just for fun Elmer showed up at Bill Cosnick’s family Christmas and that was the beginning of a Klein Christmas Tradition. Elmer and Vicky, his wife, have been surprising area children and parents since. Many of those visited have no idea who brought their children a gift and a memory that has lasted a lifetime. Many of these children now have children of their own and have asked Elmer to carry on this tradition for their family. There has only been two Christmas’ that Elmer was unable to be Santa. In one evening the Klein’s have travelled a record distance of 98 miles. Asked why he is still doing this Elmer replied that this was his contribution to the community. He has expanded in recent years to being the Santa for the Delburne Playschool children. Elmer’s family moved to Nevis in l948 and then to the family farm in l949. Elmer is married to the former Vicky Sager and they had three boys, Emery, Blue and Gage. We want to thank Elmer not only for the smiles he has put on hundreds of children and adults faces, but also for the time he has sacrificed away from his family to make others experience the Klein Family Christmas Tradition. THANK YOU ELMER and Merry Christmas

‘Twas the night before Christmas When all through the house, Nothing was stirring, Especially my spouse. My spouse was zonked out After spending the night, Wrapping the robot With its laser light. We’d had a big supper Where we both dropped our diet, Then an hour in church Telling Junior, “Be quiet!” The robot was big, It had batteries included. All over its frame Deadly weapons extruded. Wrapping was hard, Guns poked through the paper, And my spouse cut a hand, On the robot’s steel rapier. So my spouse had a scotch, Then a hot rum or two, And the robot got wrapped Though a ray gun stuck through.

Delburne, Lousana, Pine Lake, Elnora, Trochu

The robot, we thought Was a most fitting gift... A good Christmas trifle To give Junior a lift. Junior’s asleep now. The child’s tired right out. He threw a huge tantrum, We’re not sure what about. Yes, a robot’s the right gift To give to our sleeper To remind him of Jesus. It’s called the “Peacekeeper.”

Your Community Needs You Winter is the season when we hear a lot about charitable donations for campaigns like United Way’s Coats for Kids™ and families. Winter can be tough for those less fortunate. It is also the time you will see creative initiatives such as decorating a workplace Christmas tree with mitts, socks, hats or scarves. Later, the tree “decorations” get donated directly to social agencies that provide the clothing to special community members. Look through your closets and pick out some of the winter clothes you do not wear anymore and are in good condition. Find a charity that gives clothes free to those who need them. Tips • Develop a list of local charitable agencies that are running low in winter clothes and boots. Differentiate the agencies that give clothes away free and directly to those who need it most versus agencies that sell reused clothes to the public. • Initiate a conversation with your colleagues and friends and come up with an idea to capture their attention and involvement. • Make a poster or send electronic information around to make folks aware of what you are collecting and remind them a couple of times to bring the stuff in. • Make it more than a one-time event. Winter goes on for months in Alberta so continue collecting during January, February and March. Did you know? The action words in the three R hierarchy are Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Giving to your community will reduce old clothes going into the waste stream and they will be reused directly by people who need them the most. Together, we can make a difference. Share one or two things you do to be green on the One Simple Act website (onesimpleact.alberta.ca). Add Your Voice. ___________________________________

The day we flew kites by Frances Fowler "String!" shouted Brother, bursting into the kitchen. "We need lots more string." It was Saturday. As always, it was a busy one, for "Six days shalt thou labor and do all thy work" was taken seriously then. Outside, Father and Mr. Patrick next door were doing chores. Inside the two houses, Mother and Mrs. Patrick were engaged in spring cleaning. Such a windy March day was ideal for "turning out" clothes closets. Already woolens flapped on back yard clotheslines. Somehow the boys had slipped away to the back lot with their kites. Now, even at the risk of having Brother impounded to beat carpets, they had sent him for more string. Apparently, there was no limit to the heights to which kites would soar today. My mother looked at the sitting room, its furniture disordered for a Spartan sweeping. Again her eyes wavered toward the window. Come on girls! "Let's take string to the boys and watch them fly the kites a minute." On the way we met Mrs. Patrick, laughing guiltily, escorted by her girls. There never was such a day for flying kites! God doesn't make two such days in a century. We played all our fresh twine into the boys' kites and still they soared. We could hardly distinguish the tiny, orangecolored specks. Now and then we slowly reeled one in, finally bringing it dipping and tugging to earth, for the sheer joy of sending it up again.

Friday, December 18, 2009 What a thrill to run with them, to the right, to the left, and see our poor, earth-bound movements reflected minutes later in the majestic skydance of the kites! We wrote wishes on slips of paper and slipped them over the string. Slowly, irresistibly, they climbed up until they reached the kites. Surely all wishes would be granted. Even our Fathers dropped hoe and hammer and joined us. Our mothers took their turn, laughing like schoolgirls. Their hair blew out their pompadour and curled loose about their cheeks; their gingham aprons whipped about their legs. Mingled with our fun was something akin to awe. The grownups were really playing with us! Once I looked at Mother and thought she looked actually pretty. And her over forty! We never knew where the hours went on that hilltop that day. There were no hours, just a golden breeze now. I think we were all beside ourselves. Parents forgot their duty and their dignity; children forgot their combativeness and small spites. "Perhaps it's like this in the kingdom of Heaven," I thought confusedly. It was growing dark before, drunk with sun and air, we all stumbled sleepily back to the houses. I suppose we had some sort of supper. I suppose there must have been a surface tidying-up, for the house on Sunday looked decorous enough. The strange thing was, we didn't mention that day afterward. I felt a little embarrassed. Surely none of the others had thrilled to it as deeply as I. I locked the memory up in that deepest part of me where we keep "the things that cannot be and yet they are." The years went on, then one day I was scurrying about my own kitchen in a city apartment, trying to get some work out of the way while my three-year old insistently cried her desire to "go park and see ducks." "I can't go!" I said. "I have this and this to do, and when I'm through I'll be too tired to walk that far." My mother, who was visiting us, looked up from the peas she was shelling. "It's a wonderful day," she offered; "really warm, yet there's a fine, fresh breeze. It reminds me of that day we flew kites." I stopped in my dash between stove and sink. The locked door flew open and with it a gush of memories. I pulled off my apron. "Come on" I told my little girl. "You're right, it's too good a day to miss." Another decade passed. We were in the aftermath of a great war. All evening we had been asking our returned soldier, the youngest Patrick Boy, about his experiences as a prisoner of war. He had talked freely, but now for a long time he had been silent. What was he thinking of -what dark and dreadful things? "Say!" A smile twitched his lips. "Do you remember -- no, of course you wouldn't. It probably didn't make the impression on you it did on me." I hardly dared speak. "Remember what?" "I used to think of that day a lot in PW camp, when things weren't too good. Do you remember the day we flew the kites?" Winter came, and the sad duty of call of condolence on Mrs. Patrick, recently widowed. I dreaded the call. I couldn't imagine how Mrs. Patrick could face life alone. We talked a little of my family and her grandchildren and the changes in the town. Then she was silent, looking down at her lap. I cleared my throat. Now I must say something about her loss, and she would begin to cry. When she looked up, Mrs. Patrick was smiling. "I was just sitting here thinking," she said. "Henry had such fun that day. Frances, do you remember the day we flew the kites?"

Lifestyle changes help prevent and manage diabetes Diabetes affects nearly three million Canadians. In Alberta, more than one in every 20 people has diabetes. It is estimated that 90-95 per cent of all diabetes cases are Type 2, which happens when the pancreas does not produce enough insu-lin or the body does not effectively use the insulin it makes. Type 2 diabetes usually develops in adulthood, although increasing numbers of children in high-risk populations are being diagnosed. Only 5-10 per cent of people are Type 1, which is usually diagnosed in childhood and occurs when the pancreas is unable to produce insulin. If left untreated or improperly managed, diabetes can result in complications, including diseases of the heart, kidney, and eyes as well as nerve damage. Recognize the signs and symptoms The first step in preventing or delaying the onset of these compli-cations is recognizing the signs and symptoms of diabetes: • Unusual thirst • Frequent urination • Weight change (gain or loss) • Extreme fatigue or lack of energy • Blurred vision • Frequent or recurring infections • Cuts and bruises that are slow to heal • Tingling or numbness in the hands or feet Healthy lifestyle changes for everyone Research shows lifestyle changes can help in the prevention of Type 2 diabetes. The changes below are options for all people, not just those at risk of developing diabetes. • Be more active: add 30 minutes of moderate walking every day. • Eat more whole grains, beans and lentils, fruit and vegetables, and low-fat milk products. • Reduce weight, if overweight. Overweight people are at risk of developing diabetes.

Fire safety tips for every room in the house •



• • •

Here are some tips to help keep your family and home safe from fire. Ensure that every member of the family knows the location of the fire extinguishers in your home and how to use the unit. Make sure your unit is fully charged. There should be a smoke detector on every level of your home. Replace your smoke alarms every 10 years. Carbon monoxide is colourless and odourless, making it a silent threat. Replace the batteries in your smoke alarm and carbon monoxide alarm every year. Replace your batteries when you turn back your clocks for daylight savings. Every family should have an escape plan in case of fire. Talk about your plan and practise it at least once a year.

Tips for fire safety in every room of your house: Bedroom • Install at least one smoke alarm outside or in every bedroom. • Check electrical appliances regularly. • Bedrooms should be non-smoking areas. Living Room • Always use an appropriate-sized fireplace screen. • Do not overload electrical outlets. • Never leave lit candles unattended. Kitchen • Check kettles and toasters for damaged electrical cords. • Never leave your cooking unattended. • Keep a pot cover nearby in the event of a stove fire. Basement and Attic • Remove all flammable materials from the basement and attic. • Do not store propane indoors. • Have a professional check the furnace yearly. Garage and Workshop • Remove garbage, paper products, oily rags and wood shavings regularly. For more information, visit www.albertahealthservices.ca

Journey Down The BoomTown Trail

Money Language for Couples Community Capital is excited to be working with Family Services of Central Alberta to provide a new program: Money Language for Couples. This program is open to couples who wish to learn more about the financial language they are speaking and how that impacts their decisions and relationship. We know that finances is the number one reason couples split up so it stands to reason that the better your understanding about finances the stronger your relationship. There is no right or wrong language to be speaking, the key is to know what connection you have to money and, from there, examine the connection your partner has. It is very likely these connections will be different. This insight will allow you to better communicate with each other when it comes time to make big financial decisions but also help you understand the motivation behind the day to day financial function of your household. Money has a great deal of emotion associated with it and represents power and control in our society. When that power is more balanced in a relationship everyone benefits. Achieving that balance is hard work! Change is always a challenge because there is an element of fear there: what if things get worse, what if this doesn’t work, what if I lose out? All of these are valid concerns and are often what prevent us from making changes even if the current way isn’t working. At Community Capital, we believe: Change is good! For more information, please contact me or call Family Services of Central Alberta at 403-343-6400. Community Capital is a non-profit organization based in Central Alberta that is committed to helping people make better financial decisions. Call 403-340-1323 or e-mail [email protected] for more information.

Healthy Alberta The Link Between Breakfast and Obesity About two-thirds of Canadian adults are overweight or obese. While there are no easy solutions for preventing obesity, recent research suggests that eating breakfast can make a difference. People who eat breakfast are less likely than "breakfast skippers" to overeat at other points in the day. In addition, choosing a nutritious breakfast that contains foods from at least three of the four food groups can help to rev up your metabolism and make you a better calorieburner! Holiday Stress The holidays are a fun time of the year, but can also be quite stressful. There's so much to do and so little time to do it in! A great stress buster at this time of year is to take a bit of time for yourself to be physically active. The activity - whether a brisk walk, shovelling the drive, or a snowball fight - will give your mind a break and leave you feeling invigorated.
