Are You Dreaming of A “Green” Christmas…..?

What does Christmas mean to you?

Connecting with loved ones?

Decorating your home and enjoying festivities?

Buying gifts and presents for everyone to enjoy?

How can we do this in an environmentally friendly way?

The COP26 conference took place last month with a strong message that we all have to be responsible for the health and wellbeing of our planet.

So with Christmas being the biggest spending spree of the year…..why not take time to plan your festive celebrations?

Discover how you can reduce your carbon foot print whilst being kinder to yourself and the planet.

Before making any changes to big family traditions, gather your loved ones, have a conversation about why you would want to “Go Greener” this Christmas.   

Check in that everyone is onboard with a newer version of Christmas to avoid disappointment during the festive season and the BIG day itself.

Here are some tips to help you on your way!

Buy Less Food

According to the Soil Association, “food is the single most important, everyday way for people to reduce their own environmental impact”.
Buy food with less packaging.  
Buy organic meat to avoid intensively farmed produce. 
If you cook too much, prepare to store, freeze or share with a neighbour.

Use recyclable Wrapping

Use brown paper, tied with string or ribbon.
Add foliage from the garden or create your own stamps.
It brings an understated elegant look.

Eco Friendly Tree

Buy and FSC approved Christmas Tree
Buy from a local trader to reduce carbon foot print.
Once Christmas is over take it to a recycling centre where it can be shredded and reused for local bark and clippings.

Breath Work

As we enter into our fourth week of quarantine or cocooning, I’d like to ask you how are you breathing?

Are you filling up your lungs with air regularly each day?
Can you fill your lungs up with air or are you stuck in fear and anxiety?
Can you move out of that fear and breath not only into your lungs but into your tummy and torso?

Sarah Weller’s Conversations With Calm Therapy

Conversations with Calm Therapy is a project where I interview a series of holistic therapists and business owners during the Covid-19 pandemic.  This is to create connection amongst business owners during isolation.  It also offers the viewer of these interviews tips on how to cope with sudden change, how to manage your fear that rises with uncertainty and perhaps learn how to release that fear from your body.  I’ll also be asking each guest for any useful rituals or activities we can add to our daily routines during lockdown.

My first interview is with Sarah Weller, a qualified Parenting Consultant and Family Relationship Coach.
