Embracing Wellbeing during the Holidays

Leave a comment

For me December has become a time of reflection, a time of turning to family and friends and appreciating all that they are to me and the difference they make in my life.

Because I can, I choose not to be part of the frenzy, the shopping craziness.  Instead I love to just breathe in the myriad ways that people decorate their homes and businesses. As I travel every day in my “commute” about the Island, I try to change up my route so that I can see something different. Occasionally, I find myself slowing down and even stopping for a moment to take in yet another well lit front yard, filled with every possible holiday inflatable.

In fact I think slowing down – becoming more mindful is fitting as each day becomes shorter and shorter as the Solstice draws nearer. This is the time I breathe a little more deeply and choose to be more aware of my breathing. This is a time of year I embrace the quiet of dawn with an early morning run. This is the time of year I look not to gorge, but rather to bless my food and acknowledge the difference that healthy eating and optimal nutrition has made in my life.

What one thing can/will you do to embrace your wellbeing during the holiday season?
