News you can use about the holidays & Sunrise Yoga Studio

December Newsletter

Notes from Valerie
The holiday season is in full swing!
Do you have your to do list,
your grocery list, your decorating list,
your holiday card list, your holiday gift list
all prepared and ready to check, check, check?
List making can help keep anxiety and stress levels in check. List making can protect mental and physical energy levels from being depleted. List making can also keep priorities in balance. And list making can also be a means for remembering the joys in life as well as the many reasons we have to celebrate.

We hope you’ll consider adding one more list to your lists. Sunrise Yoga Studio is again supporting Senior Services this year for the holidays. Senior Services’ mission is to help older adults remain at home for as long as possible and to help them live with dignity.

Nothing is more important than one's personal sense of dignity. Maintaining it, however, can be challenging, especially to the more vulnerable, and even more so during the holidays. Our self-worth can suffer from lack of acceptance, disregard, as well as lack of financial resources.

Will you help us give the gift of dignity this holiday season? Someone’s list of reasons to celebrate could use that big check mark you make possible through your gift!
