Staying Stress Free during the Holidays

The Holidays are a wonderful and busy time of the year, friends, family, holiday parties and so much more...

During this time of the year, it's important to take time for yourself.
Finding ways to stay stress free will help you go through the season and make for a joyful time.
  • Meditation: take some time for yourself everyday. Find a quite space and time at least once a day for 10-15min. You may find that guided, mindfulness, mantra or clearing the mind meditation works for you. Explore and find the one that connects to you. 
  • Healthy Eating: As we enjoy our holiday parties, food, wine, many tempting treats make sure your are getting some healthy alternatives in. Check in, make sure you are eating balanced meals and plenty of fluids to keep the body nourished during this time of the year.
  • Enjoy a nice cup of tea or hot cocoa and just sit back and enjoy.Herbal teas can be nourishing, healing and calming, find the tea that speaks to you (I go towards my meditation tea during this time if year). I love a good hot cocoa, I enjoy creating and sipping chocolate and adding herbs, yes I add herbs to my hot cocoa. When I have time to relax with a cozy hot cocoa I have two blends that I pick from, one is a heart balancing cocoa with rose and hawthorn and the other is an immune boaster (perfect for this time of the year.
