As we are entering another holiday season it is so easy to get into the habit of automatic “giving.” We create our shopping lists, brainstorm for the perfect gifts, and are so focused on “giving” gifts. We often experience stress during the holidays trying to navigating everyone's expectations for where we should be “giving” our time during the holiday season.
This celebration, that event, this food drive, that charity auction, etc. They can all be good things, but in the mix of all the stress to “give” during the holidays, we tend to forget our health and self care we all deserve and need. The things we need to do in order to stay healthy, energetic, and present in your life – during the stress of the holidays and beyond.
We cannot "give" from an empty vessel. We must fill and maintain our vessel with health, joy, respect, and happiness, so much so that it spills over to others. Taking the critical time needed to stay healthy and take care of ourselves is important. This kind of "giving" is remarkably infectious and effective — but it can’t happen until we give ourselves the gifts of health, joy, respect, and happiness first.
Schedule time to take a breath during the holiday season.
Take the time to go for a walk, enjoy a yoga class, or even do some breathing exercises. And, fuel yourself with plenty of fresh, whole organic foods that will nourish your body, give you energy, and support your immune system. Stick with healthy habits that build you up, and give yourself time to rest and recharge.
Don’t wait until the first of the year to make a resolution that you know you will break! Say “yes” to making healthy choices and taking one small step at a time now.
Health starts with each small choice we make.
