When we enter the holiday season we are entering a whole new way of life.
We are expected to be able to navigate it with grace and glee, but let's be honest here, it's not always like that!
How many times have you walked into a room over the holiday season and been less than thrilled to have Great Aunt Betty exclaim her surprise over something your body does or doesn't have?
Or perhaps you get to the snack or dessert table and your mother snugs up against you to whisper that you might not need that on your plate....?
Well I have FIVE tips/ideas/tools for you to get started with not only surviving the hardships of the holidays, but THRIVING though them!
1.) Find a system or supportive group NOW. Not in a week from now, not after Thanksgiving had wreaked it's havoc with the delights of Pecan Pie, but now. Find it, get comfortable with it.
2.) Repeat after me, "I am worthy of love and respect at all times." And I mean AT ALL TIMES!!! So, no negative self talk. Bolster yourself up with learning and cultivating this belief, which is TRUTH.
3.) Allow yourself the indulgences you look forward to all year long. Be mindful in your consumption and don't beat yourself up or tear yourself down for it. See #2
4.) When you are confronted with a situation or temptation that feels overwhelming;
*Visit the pros and Cons
*Choose what feels right for you with confidence
5.) Learn to manage the stress with a few well placed deep breaths. For our Yogis out there, we call this Pranayama, and it is an incredibly powerful practice!
The Holiday Season Is To Celebrate, Find Love And Compassion In All The Right Places! It Starts With You Loving You For the Wonderful You That You Are.
