The holidays can be quite overwhelming for many of us. With extra tasks, amplified emotions, and subconscious expectations it can be a difficult time to navigate. So, how do we get through the overwhelm? By remembering that there is only one time and place that we have any control over—the present moment. When we can let ourselves be fully aware and accepting of the right now, we find not only a renewed sense of calm, but an open invitation to joy.
Tips to living in the now –
Gratitude - When we focus on appreciation for the good things in our lives, we develop a sense of positivity within ourselves which then also radiates to others.
Slow Down – “I’m just right here” is a good mantra to help us stay focused on the moment and keep the mind from dwelling on what was or what could be.
Breathe – Taking a few moments to simply be aware of our breaths, or deep breathing—3x in through the nose, then releasing through the mouth—is wonderfully relaxing and strengthens focus.
The greatest gift we can give to ourselves and to others is the practice of awareness and acceptance of each moment. Within this space we find joy and harmony for every season.
We carry inside us the wonders we seek outside us. – Rumi
