Whew! It is the week OF Christmas! And I can say that for myself, I am a little guilty of getting swept up in the holiday bustle this year! We all get caught up in work, travel arrangements, “obligations”, buying gifts – the list goes on and on. This time of year is supposed to be a time of traditions, family, friends and to remember all that we have. But, too often we let the commercialism and “bottom-line” take hold. We put our physical health and emotional sanity on the back burner. I am personally making an effort TODAY to slow down.
We all get so swept up in the hustle and bustle that we let our healthy diets and sleep patterns falter…DON’T let Christmas time be a recipe for burn-out. Remember to stop and smell the poinsettias. Take care of yourself, take a breath (or a hot bath), and have some FUN.
Remember that your full calendar and busy schedule is a great thing. It means you are loved. Change your perspective and approach things with a new-found sense of calmness this season. I have found that a change in heart makes all the difference.
