Simple Strategies for Relieving Stress During the Holidays! #10


It’s the Holiday Season! Strategy #10

Oh boy here it comes ~ the holidays! It is 1 days until Thanksgiving and 30 days until Christmas! It can be a time of hustle, hurry, and unfortunately stress and worry. So between now and then we’re going to be talking about, and share ways to have a happy enjoyable holiday season from now through Thanksgiving and until Christmas. Each day I will share a tip, secret, or simple strategy on how to keep yourself balanced and centered through the holiday season. It will take about 5 minutes a day.

Hello and Welcome back! We are on strategy day 10 and the final day of this collection! Let’s recap our strategies and see how you are doing. Here is what we have so far:

  • Visualize your holiday and what your desired outcome is.
  • Manage the amount of time it will take to create your desired outcome.
  • Stay out of judgement on yourself. Do what you can.
  • Get some rest.
  • Eat good food.
  • Feed your mind positive thoughts.
  • Plan simple activities.
  • Self Management Techniques
  • Get some exercise

And now step 10~ meditation. I have been asked many questions about mediation: “Deanna, how do I meditate?” , “How do I still my mind?”, “When do I find the time?”, “Every-time I meditate I fall asleep, how can I stay awake?’.”

Well there are more techniques out there than I can possibly digest and teach you in a lifetime. And yes, it can be quite puzzling on how and where to start ~ but let’s get you started with a quick, fun, and relaxing meditation that will take you about 3 and a half minutes. 



Action Step for today: Use this brief and fun meditation to help you center and balance. I recommend that you keep it close for those moments when you need a breath. If you are already familiar with meditation I highly recommend that incorporate it into your holiday season.

Deep Breath in! Cleansing Breath out! Say to yourself – simple strategies I put in place now will help me to walk in ease and grace, more centered, more balanced.I can do this!

Big Hug and I will see you then!
