Hello folks, I have here ten quick tips to brighten your holiday season, and your health.
1) Meditation – Slow down and enjoy… Your health and activities will be more fruitful.
2) Plan Ahead – Know what you have and want to do and let the rest go. Don’t try and do it all.
3) Keep it simple this year – Cut out stress by taking it easy. Some of the greatest gifts are those money can’t by (like simple, quality time with loved one’s).
4) Gratitude – Giving thanks is what the holidays are all about. When we take time and remember to be genuinely grateful we affirm and solidify what we have, as well as create space to draw in more happiness.
5) Rest and Hydration – These are two pillars of health and go hand in hand. We tend to be very busy and on the run. Don’t let crazy days and late nights swallow you whole during the holidays. Make sure to carry a water bottle with you during your daily activities, and treat yourself to some early evenings to be fresh and enjoy the days.
6) Organize – Know what works for you and stick to your plan. Don’t get sidetracked and carried away by little obstacles.
7) Routine – A routine is invaluable. Create time for your self in this routine. Make a point to emphasize several times throughout the day to take a break from your to-do-lists and do what you want in that moment.
8) Tradition – Why not take this year and establish a family tradition. A Christmas Eve hike or a New Years Day ski trip creates memory and is something everyone will enjoy for the years to come.
9) Test yourself – Take one action that does not serve your health or happiness and create change. If not now, when? Instead of partying on New Years Eve (like every year) maybe suggest a midnight Yoga session to your local studio, or stay home with family and make someone extra happy.
10) Big Meals – We love to eat during the holidays. It is interesting how based around food our holidays are in the west. It is great to enjoy our food! However, let us put these calories to use by doing some fun exercise that appeals to us in the days following the all the pecan pie and mashed potatoes (Mmmmmm).
All the warmest wishes of health and happiness to each and all of you during this beautiful Christmas Season. Wishing you all courage and will in gaining the momentum necessary to fulfill all of your deepest desires and attainment in this upcoming year of 2010.
All the very best, always
