Taking Care of YOU in the Flurry of the Holiday Season
In the flurry of the holiday season, waves of emotions may arise. Remember to breathe, let go and to meet all that arises with loving awareness. Easier said than done perhaps but here is a powerful concept to consider; Take One Minute for Yourself!
It is the self that we need to take care of because when we take good care of our "selves," we are healthier and happier and are more able to help other people.
How do you take care of you in one minute? Make a point several times a day to STOP and ask yourself this question: "Is there a way, right now, for me to take better care of myself? You have the answer within exactly how to nurture yourself but here are a few ideas to consider:
- Simplify your life
- Change your attitude
- Tap into the power of self observation through prayerful meditation
yourself as you would like others to treat you
- Encourage others to take better care of themselves
- Be loving
- Give yourself a daily hug
When every person in the world takes better care of themselves, everyone in the world will feel better taken care of and then we may finally begin to care more about each other.
