Before we get swept away with a tide of whirlwind and frenzy, let’s set an intention to experience the holidays with mindful merriment this year.
Why you should be giving yourself these 3 gifts FIRST to keep you happy, healthy and merry this holiday season.
1. The Gift of Time
You may already be seeing the holiday invites start popping up in your newsfeed or in your email but it’s not too late to plan purposely for the holidays.
Block out time between busy days even hours for quiet time or even the potential for spontaneity. Balancing out the busy with some mindful moments will keep you refreshed, recharged and in the right mindset to enjoy the next activity.
2. The Gift of Presence
If you find that you're short on time, you can't catch your breath, and your mind has future tripped to what you'll bring to dinner at Aunt Beattie’s house... Be Here NOW, warrior.
There is no greater gift to give than your full attention, love and awareness.
Not only will you reap the benefits of taking a mindful pause, soaking up all the beauty of the season, feeling all those holiday feels but those around you will feel the love light of your full attention.
3. The Gift of Gratitude
Before your heart starts to race with thoughts of your to do list or how you need to find that ONE perfect gift, it’s not too late to reconnect with the true spirit of the season - the simple act of giving.
Give thanks for all your blessings y’all.
Invite the simple practise of recounting all the people and things you are grateful for. Infuse this into your morning routine.
I’m talking first thing folks, when your pretty little lashes open in the morning, immediately start taking blissful stock!
It will set a beautiful tone for your day and remind you of the gifts you joyfully receive every day and not just at the holidays.
Here is what I use to keep my gratitude game strong all year long!
Remember during the season of giving that you deserve all the love and light you so easily give to others!
