The holiday season is a time of slowing down, resting & enjoying the present moment. However, the holidays are filled with dread for some because of the need to be a part of the holiday rush.
The holiday rush mentality is filled with the urge to be in the hustle and bustle; however, what if you adopt a new mindset of relaxing, relating & releasing your stress into the atmosphere.
Here are seven ways to relax under the holiday stress, relate to the emotions you feel & release them with ease.
- Journal the stress, doubts & anxiety away.
My journal has become my therapist because I can express my concerns without judgment & organize my thoughts. Overall, journaling your thoughts can be therapeutic.
- Ask yourself the critical questions.
Sometimes we can overthink ourselves into a frenzy, so realizing what is really important helps you get insight into the bigger picture.
- Do What Makes You Happy.
What is logical to someone else may not work for you, so finding your balance is essential. Happiness is an inside job, so make sure you do the inner work to create your own place of joy.
- Let go of the knowing.
We are curious human beings with a desire to know everything. But when you let go of control, you create a space for the unknown adventures to come to fruition.
- Make space for self-compassion.
Sometimes we can be our worst critics, but taking time to create a space of grace for yourself will take the pressure off & eliminate the need to overextend yourself.
- Boundaries are boundless.
There are no limits to the boundaries you need to make to keep your mental, emotional & spiritual well-being secure.
- Support systems save lives.
Creating a healthy support system of family & friends will relieve some of the daily life pressures. Remember, no man can be an island & thrive by themselves. ReplyForward
