Stay Happy & Calm this Holiday SeasonHolidays should be fun. But let’s face it – from the mile-high end-of-year to-do lists to the family politics to shopping overwhelm, this time of year can be a drag. Then add on the natural dip in our moods due to less sunlight and colder temperatures and you’ve got a recipe for the humbugs. You need to make an effort to focus on yourself in order to stay happy & calm this coming holiday season. If you want to enjoy this holiday season to the fullest, staying on top of your mental health is key. Thankfully, all it takes is a little daily self-care and the motivation to make merry.
Check Out Our 3 Steps To Stay Happy & Calm This Holiday Season
Tip #1: Make meditation a morning habit.
Mornings set the tone for the whole day. Start it off right with a powerful meditation. This guided meditation is quick (less than 10 minutes long) and perfect to listen to right after waking or while you’re waiting for your morning coffee to brew. Book a session in the Salt Cave at On-Point Health & Wellness in Beckley WV for your next meditation morning!
Tip #2: Say “No!”
This may seem like strange advice, but at a time of year where everything seems important, you have to make cuts. It’s not easy to say no, but if you fill your schedule with too many commitments, you won’t be your best for any of them. You’ll only add to your stress levels, sabotage your sleep, and reduce your immunity.
Say yes to only the invitations and projects you desperately want to do, and let the other opportunities go. You’ll be able to give your all to your priorities and actually enjoy the season.
Tip #3: Keep up with your wellness habits.
It’s easy to let self-care take the back seat around the holiday. Staying on track is crucial to your health and happiness – especially during this more stressful time of year. Plan time each day to do something that soothes you (even if it’s 20 minutes of quiet time). Book yourself relaxation time NOW for later in the month. You future self with thank you!
