Reduce Stress, Increase Peace, and Celebrate the Holidays

November 23, 2012 8:00 pm

So often, we forget that nourishing ourselves with down time is just as vital as eating, breathing and drinking water.

As the busy holiday season begins, I encourage all clients to build into their lives, times for meditation, relaxation and rejuvenation.

One way you can get into the habit of making self nourishment a part of your routine is to put up post-it notes with affirmations that remind you to take care of yourself well.
  • “I take 10 minutes every day, at least twice a day to engage in breath work and meditation.”
  • “I allow myself to rejuvenate through 30 minutes of bodywork, facials, and exercise each week.”
  • “I slow down to make healthy food choices and savor each bite with gratitude.”
  • “I schedule mini breaks to break out of my daily routines and environment.”
Start paying attention to your internal chatter and thoughts and notice how many times you tell yourself as you move through the days, “Oh I don’t have time, money or energy to take care of myself.”
You might notice a predominance of these kind of thoughts, but the reality is that everyone can create the time, financial resources, and energy to take a little down time every week.

Whether it is at Aiki Healing or another relaxation venue, take time to care-take yourself well during the holidays. You deserve it!
