As you unwrap that final Milky-Way from your leftover indulgences at Halloween, let’s not forget that butterball turkey, piles of mashed potatoes, pies, pies and more pies will be coming within the next couple of weeks. Before we know it tis the season shopping is here & the lists are ginormous; 3AM black friday shopping, coupons, sales, savings, THAT SWEATER IS NOT IN STYLE, put up the tree, deck the halls, holiday grab bags, holiday cards, holiday caroling, volunteering, baking, cooking and OH! you’ve forgotten the cranberry sauce!… Through all of this stress you’ve stress drank every gifted bottle of wine straight through to that glorious hang-over of the New Year!
Project Zen would like to remind you:
“There is more to life than increasing its speed…”
-Finding 5-10 minutes for daily meditation, will help focus your mind, slow your breathe, collect your thoughts and begin to organize your day.
-Do not push aside last years resolutions of this years healthy eating habits; look up recipes now on how to eat healthy through the Holidays.
-Keep up with your exercise, it will help strengthen your daily routine.
-Water, water and more water; holiday coffees, lattes, mocha’s and hot chocolates can lead to dehydration, which can result in fatigue.
-Plan a family day! Shutdown the computers, television and hang up that cellphone; it can wait for tomorrow. Planning a day of fun family games, baking or traveling for a favorite drive.
& most importantly, at the most wonderful time of the year, if things are feeling chaotic;
breathe it in and count to Zen.
