Holiday Highs and Lows

I’m sure we all have experienced the holiday chaos. There are holiday parties, family get-togethers, shopping extravaganzas, house cleaning before and after each activity, and in the middle of all that our emotions and stress level may be getting a little out of control. But we brush that aside because we have too much to do, we can’t slow down.

Doing this can help you fully appreciate the holiday season and start the new year off in a more positive place.

Let’s do it now! Take a couple deep breaths, look at your surroundings, acknowledge how you’re feeling, no judgements, and take a couple more deep breaths. There, wasn’t that nice? Now get back out there!

Everyone has their own way of getting back to their happy place. A blogger/designer, Holly Becker, I enjoy, recently wrote a post about how she gets herself out of a funk. Take a look.

And of course if you still need some help come talk to me! I care!
