This time of the year most of us seem to be set on high speed. We are trying to do everything and be everything to everyone. This should be a time to slow down and reflect. Reflect on your life and the lives of those around you. Reflect on all of the good in your life and yes even if you feel like you are in a bad place right now, there is good in your life. Look for it. Reflect on how you can bring that good into the lives of others around you.
Sounds simple. Of course you are breathing, right? The truth is most of us hold our breath when we are hurried, anxious and stressed. The breath is a wonderful gift our creator has given to each and every one of us. Start paying attention to how you are using this gift. Practicing some simple breathing exercises can drastically lower your stress levels helping you to have a very Happy Holiday Season, from Thanksgiving through the New Year day celebrations.
Embrace the Parts You Love
I love singing Christmas carols (even though I can’t carry a tune LOL), I love baking Christmas goodies and spending time with my family. I also like preparing for the New Year with the giddy excitement of a child on Christmas morning. Creating a vision board and organizing my business makes me feel empowered. What do you like?
Let Go of the Parts That Create Stress For You
You really don’t have to do everything. I stopped decorating a few years ago because I really didn’t enjoy it. I don’t think I am good at it and I find it stressful. I love to bake though, so I make sure to save time for making Christmas goodies for families and friends.
