Blogmas 2017 – Day 4 – Favourite Christmas Songs

In recent years, I have found myself interested in a combination of classic Christmas tunes and alternative, slightly more modern releases.

Even when people try to relax, they can feel lazy, guilty and/or selfish for taking time for themselves. If you are anything like me, you need a measure of both pressure and chill time, and with stress also being such a widespread health concern, we need to forget the negative thoughts about relaxing and accept that we need to achieve some balance.
