I’m ready to embrace the comfort of the holiday season. While my mind remains on the many crises occurring around the world, I’m also feeling the fatigue of worrying about it all. You see, it’s personal. With family in Israel, and a child in (now a heavily guarded) Jewish school, I’ve felt a lot of stress and anxiety in the last few weeks. While I won’t turn away from what’s happening (and you can read reporting I’ve done online), I also recognize the need to give myself some grace; feeling helpless all the time isn’t healthy. That said, this issue of VITA is full of holiday cheer, from a very merry content creator to an advent calendar extravaganza to gifts that give back. On my wish list? A cool hair-styling tool from Dyson’s Ceramic Pop line—and peace on Earth, please.
