Setting Intentions For a Peaceful Christmas and Successful New Year
With time ticking down to the New Year, I’m taking time to just Be this holiday season, with a capital “B”. It seems like the crazy just gets crazier every year: more to do, people to see, work to accomplish and somewhere in there, time for what’s really important. The people you love -- including yourself. Yes, you. Now is the perfect time to take 20 minutes a day to breathe, evaluate, and plan.
“But I don’t have time for that! I could actually DO something in those 20 minutes!” You might be thinking. Just being; that is doing something. Whether it’s closing your eyes to meditate, resting with a good book, or enjoying wherever you are withOUT being on your phone, you’re actually helping your body and mind to reset. Meditation has been proven to reduce stress and help control anxiety -- two things that are overwhelmingly common during what is supposed to be the happiest time of the year. We want to do it all. But letting go a little is actually the best thing you can do, to do it all. By releasing some of your expectations of what must be done and going with the flow will help you handle stressful situations better.
All easier said than done, right? I know between cramming in the annual family holiday visits, traditions, not to mention work, it’s hard to justify taking “me time”. Yet when I do, the other moments seem less intense, and I actually enjoy myself in the present more instead of stressing over whatever’s coming next! So this holiday season, I’m taking the time, and I’m setting an intention for the New Year: focus only on what’s absolutely necessary, be positive, and the rest will fall into place.
