Joy Fulfillment during the Holidays
No need to let the common stresses of the season wear you down. Lets talk through a few of the big causes of stress for many of us during what now feels like the two full months of holidays.
A feeling of overwhelming family obligations can be quite stressful and boil over during the holiday breaks and trips and parties.
Take a mental step back from these concerns, fears and decades old anxieties. Try seeing the positive, what makes the holidays special for you?
Letting go of obligations and feelings of stress over the holidays will help your whole family be happier and more rested.
A common source of stress is past memories or feelings that we do not express during the rest of the year. Often we visit people we only see once in a year and any negative feelings pool up during the time we do not see them. What is the best way you feel would resolve some of this kind of stress for you personally?
For late November through early January give twice as much love as you get. Hand out smiles and share joys, even small ones, wide and far. Sure, grumpy (cat) people (aka stressed people) may make fun of you or will simply not understand but bring out the joy and keep it out: Joy Flashing can be great for your emotional health. Lord knows I can be a grump, get off my lawn sort of person but making a conscious effort to create happiness not only in my life but in others goes such a long ways towards better health, a good state of mind and my bliss-ed out heart.
