hol·i·day – a time of festivity or recreation when no work is done
I find it humorous to read this definition as we mostly find ourselves during the holiday season running around more frantically with deadlines, obligations, and piles of “stuff” we must DO.
Wouldn’t it be fantastic though if we could pause with a bit of intention this year and look at how we are choosing to spend our days?
Often while I’m working with clients as a therapist I ask them to take a moment to settle, close their eyes (now don’t do this while you’re driving) draw in a slow breath in through the nose, wait, and then gently release. They then repeat this cycle for a few rounds.
We get into the habit of moving so fast in our words and actions that we miss out on what is right in front of our cold noses. Let’s go ahead and be intentional. Bring in the good vibes, just for today.
Wishing all of you a safe and restorative holiday season.
In well health,
