We need to stop worrying and start working. We’re moving into the last month of the year where things can get quite overwhelming and hectic.
How do we stay centered, grounded, and focused? By giving ourselves some quality time to slow down.
December is an interesting month. The energy is powerful but also a little conflicting. On one hand, the air is filled with holiday cheer and good vibes. On the other hand, I feel overwhelmed and overbooked. Wtf?
When it comes down to it, December is a really fun month but also an intense one, and that’s ok. Isn’t it weird how our brains want to automatically go to that place where we hear intense and we want to label it “bad”.
Intense just means that we have to work even harder to stay aware of ourselves and the choices we’re making. When we learn how to focus ourselves, ground ourselves and center ourselves even in the most intense moments, we can find the time to take a step back from whatever is going on wherever we are, and take a deep breath.
As a yoga teacher, something I practice daily is embracing the power of the breath. Every single breath is a moment to reset, reconnect, let go, and slow down. As you’re reading this, think about today alone. How many times have you acknowledged your breath?
So as we move into the busy holiday season filled with lots of delicious eats, delicious sweets, travels, parties, shopping, drinking, snoozing, aka all the things, let’s commit to taking some moments to ourselves to take a deep breath and slow down.
If you’re not sure where to start, I’d suggest getting in the kitchen and making something you LOVE. Something delicious. Like this creamy vegan mac and cheese, stuffed in a pepper or not. It’s super easy and seriously tastes like happiness.
