Last night, during a yoga class I was taking, I was reminded of a blog I wrote last year for the Institute for Health and Human Potential. Getting prepared for the holidays can be such a stressful time trying to figure out how to get all of your work done before you leave the office and how to set yourself up to not be really stressed when you return.
You can read the article with my suggestions of how to set yourself up for the holidays here: How to leave work behind this holiday season
With all of the hustle and bustle, sometimes we just need to take time to slow down. We’re going to get done what we are going to get done, but the key is to try and stay as calm as we can through the whole experience and stay present and enjoy ourselves and this season with friends and family.
My yoga instructor last night was having us inhale and say the word “slow” to ourselves and exhale and say the word “down” to ourselves. I thought that was another helpful tip for the holidays.
Here’s wishing you all a safe, peaceful, loving and joyful holiday season and a HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Until next year…
