Have yourself a Whimsical little Christmas
here to go to the treasury.
It's made up of cute and whimsical stuff to give as gifts, or keep for yourself, lol!
Well, we are in the first week of December, and before you know it, Christmas will be here, and then the New Year. I can't say I have accomplished what I wanted to this year, but isn't that belief pretty typical? We rarely think we have done enough. Must be the society we live in that keeps telling us to do more, be more, have more, buy more, no wonder so many people are stressed around this time of year. I think we can all use a little break from the insanity.
A helpful tip is to take at least 15 minutes each day, to just sit, breathe, and recharge yourself. Take slow, deep breaths, and concentrate on your breathing. On the inhale when your lungs are filled, hold your breath for a few seconds, then exhale. Your mind will wander but stick with it. After each exhale, feel your body sinking deeper into your chair. Keep your eyes closed, unclench your jaw, and soften your facial muscles.
After a few moments, you will realize that the chatter in your mind has slowed down, and you feel so good. Continue as long as you desire, and when you open your eyes, you may find yourself smiling and at peace.
Give it a try, and let me know what you think. In fact, if you are sitting on your computer reading this, what a perfect time to take a few moments and see if it's true, or if I am full of crap.
And don't say you can't spare 15 minutes for yourself.
YOU are the most important person in your life, and don't you forget it :-)
