Countdown to Christmas
Do you every year say the same thing ‘ I will be more organised this Christmas and not leave everything to the last minute?
As of today, there are 45 days until Christmas. Yep 45 days of Christmas carols being played on a loop, madness in shopping centre’s and main streets and endless parties and hangovers to remind us that the festive season is in full swing.
Here at Tarian Pantry we want to encourage two main things this festive season:
- Shop more mindfully
- Be more organised
Avoid the rush, start planning now
Christmas is more than a mad rush around the shops contributing towards higher than normal stress levels, its about enjoying some down time, time with family and friends and appreciating what we have; its about moderation not excess.
To help you plan your 2016 Christmas we are getting in early. For the next 6 weeks we plan to arm you with essential Christmas tips from food to fitness helping you consume more plant-based fare and most importantly, helping your avoid the festive bulge.
To kick-start the festive season, today’s focus is FOOD. From online shopping to local grocers we will have you first thinking of your festive menu before presents even get a look in.
