I did a double take when I saw the mail truck at the same gas station I was using – somehow, I never think of mailmen needing to refuel, or at least not doing it at a commercial station. But there he was, putting gas into the tank just like the rest of us.

Use the mail truck as a metaphor for your wellness as we head into the Christmas madness. No one can run on fumes. Make the time to stop and refuel your own energy – whether that be through a few stolen moments alone, ensuring that you get a good night’s sleep, or taking a brisk walk with the dog. Christmas will deliver more joy if we keep our emotional tank full.
