The holidays are fast approaching, and this year there seems to be an additional frenzy about holiday shopping due to supply chain issues.
So, I’ve got a feeling that staying grounded and calm is going to be extra challenging. That’s why I wanted to share a few tips to help you.
1 – Give yourself a minute
Get up 10 minutes earlier, or give yourself a few minutes before bed to do a quick meditation and or simply reflect on the day and name three things you’re grateful for. (Bonus points if you get your partner or family involved in the gratitude game.)
2 – Say No!
No is a full sentence and it’s ok to use it without explanation. Setting a few boundaries and getting more intentional with what you value, who and what you want to focus on, and what is important to you before we go into full-blown holiday mode, will help you to practice discernment and say no to the things that don’t bring you joy or fulfillment. Grab a pen and write out what you’d like to experience this holiday season and who you really want to spend time with. What can you do to help you attain the experiences you want? Who do you need to say no to?
3 – Schedule some space
Look ahead at your schedule and block off a few hours here and there to do whatever you want. Bonus points: schedule something fun for yourself. Allow these blank spaces to be times where you do whatever you feel like. Not sure what to do during that time? Ask yourself: what do I need right now. Allow yourself to indulge in whatever comes up.
Have a happy holiday season!
