Welcome! Today I would like to share with you tips to not only help you survive but thrive during the holiday season and beyond. You can take these into 2014 as well.
For a lot of us the holidays can be super stressful and just really increase our stress level for lots of reasons. So today I’d like to share with you five tips:
- Get out and move your body: Some of you might like to run or walk. We often get too busy and forget to take care of ourselves. Moving our bodies helps to releases physical, mental and emotional stress from our bodies and burns calories as a total bonus! Make time, at least 15 minutes, to move, even if it’s dancing in your living room.
- Slow down, and do less. Take more time for you. Delegate, ask for more support and let go of what is not really important. The voice in our head tells us that everything is important and everything has to be done. But the truth is, that is just not true. You can still grab my free gift I put together for the holidays, which helps you recharge during mid-day or late afternoon. Check out the link HERE
- Release your perfection. For all of you out there looking for the perfect gifts or throwing the perfect party or decorating the house perfectly, let go of it. Tell that perfectionist that it needs to take a break for the holidays. In fact, why not all of 2014? Let go of it. I’m saying this as a recovering perfectionist.
- Stop people pleasing. You know who you are. Whether it’s with coworkers, friends and family, this is a big one for the holidays. Let go of saying yes to everyone. Before you say yes to something, tell them you’ll get back to them via text or email in an hour or tomorrow. Then take some time to really think if you want to do something. This is essential if you’re a yes person.
- Don’t take anything personally. Again, this comes in really handy when dealing with family during the holidays but also our friends that we love and usually live in harmony with. People get crazy during the holidays — not just us — everyone else. So don’t take it personally when someone blows up on you. That doesn’t mean you accept it and take it, it just means don’t take it personally: it’s probably not about you.
Thanks for joining me today. I’m wishing you a peaceful, joyful holiday season. Remember to take time for you and that it really is possible to feel peaceful and joyful all season long.
