While the SCV Home Team and I have been busy with real estate this month and will be for the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day, we’re taking a break for the next couple of days to wrap and open presents, enjoy our families and count our blessings.
The holiday season can also bring stress, and even depression, for some. The major stressors of the holidays are typically things like family pressures, money pressures, and often just the sheer amount of things to do — a list that’s longer than the day.
This holiday season do the following three things to slow down your pulse and lower your stress for the holidays:
Take control of yourself and make decisions on what is best for you and your family and don’t get caught up in trying to please everyone else.
Choose to be fully present in the special moments. Just notice the blessings, the beauty, the abundance and the wins of 2018. Reflect on the things that are important to you.
Remember, there’s so much to enjoy during the holidays. Choose joy, not stress. Choose inner peace.
Take a few deep breaths. Tell yourself, “I will allow no one to ruin this holiday.” It’s up to you. Choose joy, choose peace, and have a Happy Holiday.
