November Raising Happiness Newsletter & Blog Recap

November 28, 2012 | Newsletters | 0 comments

Hello there!

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving; this year I am particularly grateful for my job and to have such wonderful readers like you! Thank you for making my work meaningful. 

This week I posted a new article about the needs of teens, which was really fun for me to write. (And a welcome follow up to “The Kids Are Not Alright”).

If you’re already feeling over-whelmed by the holidays, I hope you’ll use the resources on our website! Lots of tips and tricks for preventing holiday fatigue and getting the most out of this “happiest time of the year.”

Warmest regards,
