The holiday season is here and I have trouble staying calm and centered during these full throttle weeks. The truth is I have no idea how to cope with my stress, or how to find a place in my head where I can feel well.
However, because I am trying very hard to learn how to find some restoration in my mind, I made a point of looking for a nice place to relax and re charge during the Thanksgiving break. Because I knew the weeks ahead are going to be fast and furious. Because my mind will be going a million miles a minute these days. Because I can’t afford to break down now, physically or emotionally.
So I chose the beach; I longed for sunshine and breathing in ocean air. I woke up to healing, warm light and walked on wet sand. Listening to the waves was key but the visual perspective of it all tuned me in to my surroundings even more. It was GLORIOUS! I only needed two days to disconnect and let go – the perfect antidote for the overwhelming days ahead of me. I may not be as serene as I’d like to be during the holidays but, at least with my memory of the beach, I’ll hopefully be able to navigate them free of any (or less, for sure) stress.
Mindfully wishing you very happy holidays,
