FEELING S.A.D. DURING THE HOLIDAY SEASON? YOU’LL BE O.K.

The holidays are wonderful, but there is also a great deal of stress at this time of year. Not only are people expected to eat more than they should, drink more than they should and spend more than they can really afford, but they are also expected to be joyous and merry and full of good cheer. For some people, however, the holidays are not something they look forward to.

MAKE A WISE ENERGY INVESTMENT IN 2018

Happy New Year, friends! For many of us, this is an important time of year as we work on making changes and accomplishing new goals. I hope you are very successful in whatever you choose to work on in 2018. I have some things I want to work on personally. One of my goals may be something you’ll want to consider.


One thing I want to do is maximize my investments, especially in terms of my energy. The goal in any investment is to expend the resource in such a way as to have a return that is greater than the expenditure. If you invest $100 in the stock market, you want to be able to withdraw $200 someday. It’s the same with other investments, even in the ways we invest our energy resources. I often hear in the therapy room examples of people investing a lot of energy into areas from which there is little or no return.

I could go on and on. You know which of these apply to you and all the others that are on your special list of ways to waste energy. Like me, you’ll get it right sometimes and goof up others. But I hope you’ll at least take an accounting of your energy investment portfolio and strongly consider pulling some funds from one of the liability categories to drop a few more energy bucks into healthier commodities. The market is ripe! There are gains to be made! Get in on the opportunity!
