Hi readers, I’m Roxanne Rhodes and I’m a psychotherapist, clinical hypnotherapist and coach with a private practice in Clowne. Christmas is almost here!! I absolutely LOVE it but as always it brings the usual stresses of present buying, socialising and the expectation of being merry. This month I wanted to offer you some quick tips for fighting the Christmas stress! 1) Remember and repeat – “this too shall pass”! This is a phrase I learned to believe in whole-heartedly when I had my son a couple of years ago. It may feel like it’s never ending, but you won’t be queuing forever. The work Xmas party will be over in a few hours. Hang in there - it passes. Christmas lasts a couple of weeks and then it’s all over for another fifty! 2) Learn how to calm down. I’ve mentioned 7/11 breathing in a heap of previous articles. It works! Use positive self-talk and conscious muscle relaxation to cope and ease the strain and the panic. 3) Check your diet. Boring – it’s Christmas which means a box of orange Matchmakers definitely counts as one of my 5 a day. But too much indulgence will leave you sluggish, tired and probably in a sugar crash where you’ll feel extra

grumpy and bah-humbug like! Grab a satsuma and some nuts! 4) Get more sleep. It’s the season of office parties, kid’s plays and seeing absent relatives, often who live far away. We cram a lot into our Christmas holidays (if we’re lucky enough to get time off from work) and this often leaves us sleep-deprived, rather than rested. Take time to get some extra sleep where you can. You don’t have to cram every minute full and you don’t have to accept every invitation. 5) Plan ahead. As much as there is to fit in, there’s nothing quite as head exploding as being ready to set off to a family party only to realise that you need to wrap some presents for some people that you won’t see again. It’s not worth the stress. Get organised avoiding stress is a whole heap better than dealing with it!! I hope that some of these tips are useful and I wish you all a very happy and calm Christmas and huge best wishes for the new year ahead! See you next month. Roxy www.mindmatterstherapies.co.uk roxy@mindmatterstherapies.co.uk

Office Christmas Party We couldn’t get away without a festive film in December. Although this isn’t the usual sweetness and light serving we usually get at this time of year. This film focuses on the renowned office Christmas party which is dreaded for a number of reasons including the consequences of having a little too much to drink and making a fool of yourself in front of the boss. The CEO of a large company (Jennifer Aniston; Friends, Horrible Bosses) tries to close the branch run by her bard-partying brother Clay (T.J Miller; Deadpool, Cloverfield). So he decides, along with his Chief Technical Officer (Jason Bateman; Horrible Bosses, Juno), that they must rally their co-workers and host the most epic

Collateral Beauty A successful New York advertising executive (Will Smith; Independence Day, Men in Black) begins to worry those that care about him when he retreats from life following a great tragedy. While his concerned friends desperately try to reconnect with him, he seeks answers from the universe by writing letters to Love, Time and Death. It’s not until his notes bring unexpected personal responses that he begins to understand how these constants interconnect in a life fully lived, and how even the deepest of losses can reveal moments of true meaning and beauty.

That's when the New Moon will mark a career breakthrough. TAURUS April 21st May 21st A team project will be very frustrating in early December.

It will be hard to get a straight answer from your boss in early December. You will have to muddle ahead as best you can. Be prepared to start a job from scratch. This situation will be frustrating, but it can't be helped. Take your cues from an older colleague who has lots of experience. By taking a philosophical approach to setbacks, you'll become a valued member of the team. The Full Moon on the 14th is ideal for making a serious commitment.
