Holiday Wellness Strategies

I know you’re already in the thick of things when it comes to the holidays. Did you know that there are approximately 41 days every year from the beginning of Thanksgiving week to January 1st, the end of the holiday season? It’s a fun and festive time and it can be stressful. Even our furry friends get bluesy.

Since we’re only half way through the season, now would be a good time to checkin with yourself. If you haven’t put wellness strategies in place STOP and consider doing this now. Maybe you’re enjoying yourself and sailing through the holiday season with bells on. In that case, wellness strategies are important to maintain your happiness. You might, however, be struggling with the down side of the holidays- anxiety and depression. You may be grieving. Many people feel sad during the holidays. In that case, wellness strategies are important to manage your moods and to push you to be with people and do activities that are uplifting.

The most important thing you can do to ensure your wellness during the holiday season is to plan ahead. Focus on what really matters. Then, focus on you and what you need. Finally, focus on others. When you focus on self-care, you’re more available to others. You’re more mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually aware and you bring your best self to the party. You can be there for others when you’re there for yourself.

25 Ways To Find Joy And Balance During The Holidays

Restoring Faith To The Approaching Holidays

Hope and Peace in Response to Terrorism

 

Two weeks ago a Russian airliner exploded in the sky killing everyone on board. Over the weekend, gunmen and suicide bombers killed 129 and injured more than 375 people in Paris. Both incidents were well planned, coordinated acts of terrorism conducted by ISIS. As the world seems to be at war and under siege with these senseless violent acts by Islamic extremists, and the coalition’s response, what can you do as an individual citizen besides watching it play out on TV?

You CAN begin with the power of prayer. If there was ever a time to talk your talk and walk your walk, it’s now. It’s not the time to throw your hands up in despair and lose hope for peace. Instead of fear and panic, send love and healing to the families who’ve lost loved ones, those injured, countries who’ve lost citizens, and to heads of state as they respond to these vicious attacks.

You CAN meditate on peace and send powerful healing energy to all violent extremists to stop these unspeakable acts of terrorism. Ask the Universe to show you how you can be of service. Instead of angry thoughts – send out loving thoughts. If you believe that, “Thoughts are things,” send your prayers and visual images of positive solutions for a peaceful world as your response. Do not to just sit on the sidelines. Get involved in a spiritual and energetic way.

Love and light,
