I’ve always enjoyed the month of December.
Whether it’s the festive vibe of the season or the opportunity to connect more with family and friends, it’s one of my favorite times of the year.
It’s also a great time to take a moment to reflect on what you have accomplished during the past year along with what you are grateful for.
Personally, I’m grateful for many things this year.
I’m grateful for - the support I’ve received as an entrepreneur from my family, friends and a growing network of fellow entrepreneurs I’ve met over the past year.
I’m grateful for - the local businesses who have partnered with me on events that have helped widen the reach of a company that previously operated just online.
I’m grateful for - the ambassadors who have contributed to this blog to share information and suggestions on how you can lead a healthier lifestyle.
And, I am also very grateful for - the customers here in Hong Kong – and throughout Asia – who have sampled products from this website and keep coming back for more. I cherish each and every order that is placed.
While the pandemic has certainly made operating a business – especially a small one – more challenging than ever, I truly believe that anyone can succeed regardless of the obstacles in their way if they have desire and resilience along with a strong support system.
Yes, the pandemic has tested all of us in ways we never imagined – physically and mentally. However, I am optimistic we will get through this and be stronger for the experience.
Celebrate a Green or Purple Christmas!
While many people around the world will be enjoying a White Christmas, here in Hong Kong we are once again expecting to celebrate a green one with no snow. I’ve become used to that over the years and a lack of snow doesn’t mean the Holidays are any less festive or fun.
In fact, to encourage everyone to celebrate a HYGGEWellbeing Holiday, we're offering 20 per cent off our specially sourced organic matcha or organic acai powders through December 31, 2021. Just use promo code XMAS20 to enjoy a Green or Purple Christmas!
Recipes for some festive drinks or dishes that you can prepare using the powders – including a refreshing matcha green tea or acai smoothie – are available on the recipe page of the website and in recent posts on Instagram. Enjoy!
If you are running out of time to find that special gift for someone in your life, tickets are still available for the Sensational Mindfulness Wellbeing Retreat we are participating in on January 9 and 10, 2022 at the WM Hotel in Hong Kong. More details are available on our Instagram page and you can email us at email@example.com to reserve a spot.
This is also a great time to consider contributing to a worthy cause or organization (part of the proceeds from our sales and special events throughout the year go to the Angels for Children organization).
Welcoming a new year
As 2021 comes to a close and a new year beckons, I am approaching 2022 with a measure of optimism and confidence of what lies ahead. While I’m extremely proud of what I’ve achieved as the founder of HYGGEWellbeing – including a recent honor through Hong Kong Living magazine – I also realize this is no time to become complacent. Every day brings a new challenge – and opportunity – and it’s vital that you seize the moment.
Thanks to your continuing support and well wishes, I have no doubt that next year will be just as successful as this year was. The future is bright and now – during the month of December – is the perfect time to celebrate.
Wish you and your family all the best during the Holidays and for a great 2022!
