The Dime Roll: Treat Yo'self (in More Ways Than One)

December 1, 2017

For better or for worse, the holiday season is in full swing. Not only is it officially December (how did that happen?!), but earlier this week, hordes of Americans took to the Interweb for Cyber Monday, and then had to alleviate their buyer's remorse by donating on #GivingTuesday. If you missed out on the latter, don't worry: we Coloradans will have a second chance to support causes and organizations doing good across our fair state on Colorado Gives Day, which takes place this year on December 5. So, if you're interested in giving to yourself while also giving to others, check out our (selfish) guide to getting the most out of charity

Speaking of treating yo'self (well, sort of), one of the best things you can do as far as personal growth is concerned is practice mindfulness, the psychological process of bringing one's attention to experiences occurring in the present moment. While the concept may have originally seemed kinda hippie-dippie to some, mindfulness has quickly gained mainstream traction, and for all intents and purposes, is here to stay (we're not mad about it, either). Think you're ready to introduce mindfulness into your life? Read on

Are you a diehard Dimer? If so, we'd love for you to pass us along to your friends and family (dogs and grandmas included). We also love hearing from our readers, so hit us up on Facebook and Twitter if you've got something to share. (C'mon...you know you want to.)
