Holiday Survival Guide

wellness Nov 24, 2017
Wow...the holidays! While intended to be a time of joy and delight, it is often a time of stress and self-sacrifice for many.
 
1. Be sure to prioritize the things you have to do. Many have time deadlines, many do not.
2. Breathe. That 30 minutes you give yourself to just be and do nothing or something relaxing can reinvigorate you for hours, even days.
3. If you are going to let your activity slip away then accept it. If you don't you will create a situation of resentment towards yourself and the things that are getting in its way.
4. The more stress we have the less we tend to take care of ourselves. You are still number one. Without you, you can't make time for everything and everyone else.
5. You can't do it all and that's okay.

But it's also exhausted me at times.
 
And this past weekend was one of those times. I had a moment where I thought that's it, I'm selling everything, leaving my studio and moving to India!
Then the messengers came, and the reminders started showing up. And I listened. I quieted myself. I reminded myself that ever since I was a young child I wanted to positively influence as many people as I could in my life. And abandoning everything would serve no one.

Not everyone has the same opportunities at the same time, just as in life we all pedal the bike just at different speeds. However, each opportunity you have, every fear or obstacle you overcome is a reason to be grateful.
 
I sit here in Costa Rica, having arrived on Thanksgiving on a solo trip...at a Denny's no less, while waiting for my bus at this pick-up location.
 
I'm so grateful for having this opportunity, for not having the fear of solo travel; for the excitement of meeting new people and learning something; and for the adventures that I will have and for the peace and relaxation.
 
It's a chance to restore, reflect, re-center and remind myself of all this life has to offer. And I am especially grateful to the amazing people who surround and support me.
 
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
