Holiday Self-Care December 12, 2010

Holiday time can be a GREAT time for spiritual growth, if we can learn to step back and take care of ourselves. At holiday time there can be too much to do, and therefore a great opportunity to practice self care.  

Life’s challenges do not stop because it is holiday time. There are always concerns in our families about our loved ones and our pets. And if our good friends need our support at the same time, holiday time can become incredibly stressful if we let it.  This is the time to practice stepping back. This is the time to remember those three important words “Keep It Simple.”  It is not necessary to create the perfect holiday and in fact it is often impossible.

Some of us try to make up for all of the problems of the year during holiday times. We have expectations surrounding visits with our family and friends that simply cannot be met.  Life keeps happening all around us, and people still get sick and pass on,  jobs are lost by some, and all the things that can be difficult to cope with do not stop happening because it is holiday time. 

Holiday time is the time to us to stay in touch with ourselves, do some spiritual reading and reflexion and pay attention to our breathing.  This is the time to monitor our stress and keep stress symptoms from building up within us.

We must remember a good holiday is a day we feel good, really good, instead of trying to pretend we feel wonderful when we are actually exhausted. If we take care of ourselves throughout this season, we can feel good on the actual holidays.
