Mindfully Cruise Through The Holiday Season


While most of us find the holiday season a relaxing time when friends and family come together, for some people the idea can been less than pleasant. If this sounds like you, here are a few tips to help you through.

  1. Don't feed your boredom with unhealthy non stop treats. Savour every mouthful mindfully.
  2. Dodge the dog fights. Stick to topics everyone can agree on. Cute baby, how's the golf swing, wow its hot!
  3. Practice kindness with estranged family or in-laws. Families can be complicated. How others see things is not necessarily the same way you do. Everyone wants ease.
  4. Don’t feel obliged to eat everything. Take a dainty bite say thank you and move on.
  5. Find some quiet time. Press the pause button and take some time for NO-THING. Disappear for a while - a solo walk, a nap, a meditation.
