Mindfulness tips for a contemplative Advent
It's finally that time again: The Christmas season begins with all its beautiful sides, from the wonderful Christmas delicacies to the annual Christmas songs (whether you love it or hate it, that's an open question), which are supposed to get you in the Christmas spirit. We all know that this special time of year also has its pitfalls and causes us stress every year when it comes to getting beautiful gifts that are suitable for the person and, ideally, personal...
