Festive not Frazzled

Posted on December 3, 2018 at 5:55 PM

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Christmas is upon us and at this time of year, we can feel a mix of joy, anxiety and maybe even dread as the hustle and bustle approaches. Are you feeling the pressure? If you are beginning to feel stress about your last minute present-buying, here are a few tips to help you feel festive, rather than frazzled.

Breathe. As soon as the tension starts mounting, try to stop whatever you are doing and breathe in through your nose. Let your belly expand just like a balloon and when you exhale, let that balloon deflate. Sit for a moment and just listen to the sound of your breath. It is the most healing sound there is. You may be amazed at the difference this pause and focus can make.

Practice Gratitude. The moment you notice a negative thought come to mind, you can change it by thinking about something you are grateful for. Take this a step further by reserving a minute to write that blessing down. Gratitude is a stress buster.

Shop Local. Forget about internet shopping; there’s nothing festive about that! Instead, come on down to Setting the Space in the Pinehills and I will be glad to help you finish your shopping. I’d love to gift wrap your goodies, too. Step into the store and explore. You are sure to find a unique gift for everyone on your list and find lots of inspiration to help get you in the Christmas spirit.

Focus on Giving. This is what the season is all about: in the giving, we actually receive the greatest gifts of all. When you find just the right gift for someone special, it tickles your soul and delights your heart. It is that spirit that makes the holiday season so magical. Without that spirit, the holiday season can be hectic and chaotic.

Following these steps are a choice you must make, but if you do, you will reap the benefits of a calm and positive Christmas season. I hope you choose to enjoy each and every precious moment of the most festive time of the year.

Festive and frazzled certainly don’t have to be synonymous. By centering yourself and focusing on what truly matters - gratitude and giving to others - you will find what truly matters in this season. I wish you all a very happy and festive Christmas!
