Less Psychic Stress as a Gift for the Holidays



Less Psychic Stress as a Gift for the Holidays

At a time when folks could be laying back to enjoy the coming Thanksgiving/Christmas/New Year’s season, most of what I find is people who are stressed--and they probably don't need a psychic reading to let them know they are stressed!

Where is preparing the heart to welcome relatives and friends? Where has the season of joy gone that presages new beginnings of the coming year?

Perhaps we need to be in receiver mode like when we were young and we weren’t responsible for making the lists and checking them twice.

Here are some things I am keeping in mind to help me be not only sane, but happy during these holidays:

I feel good about myself when I include exercise, prayer/meditation and nutritious food each day. My body loves me for this self-discipline and my self-worth meter scores big time for these activities.

When I keep present in the moment I am not worrying about all the lists that follow the one I am focusing on today. Sometimes I restrict myself to simply watching what I am doing in order to bring myself back to present moment.

It’s easy for me to think of others’ needs; I do even better when I think of my own needs. There is a little girl inside of me that needs attention too.

As I mentioned before, my own happiness is very important. It is also contagious—when I am happy, those around me are affected in a positive way.

Less stress and more play is the order of my day. How about you?
