It’s the time of year when we can all get stessed with our busy to do lists. The holidays don’t have to be stressful. Here are some ideas to destress and get some busy-ness
out of the business of living a well balanced life this holiday season.
- Less is more. Clutter stresses our physical environment and emotional lives. Do we really need all the stuff? Get rid of things that no longer delight you. Perhaps you can make agreements with people in your life to give money to charity instead of buying each other presents this year.
- Permit yourself to just be. Get off the treadmill. Ahhh…that feels nice.
- Take a walk and enjoy the outside air.
- Have a holiday party if that is something you enjoy. Skip it if you are doing it out of a sense of obligation. Life’s too short. Stressing yourself does not put out good energy for yourself or anyone else. Remind yourself of what the holidays are really supposed to be about: God’s love, the love of your family and friends, being thankful, etc.
I am stopping here for this post is going to be simple. A long list of ideas would be too busy.
