Quick Tip to Enjoy the Holiday Season

vczh1joyre8-eli-defaria

As we go rushing into the week after Thanksgiving and heading towards the holiday season I thought it would be a good time to remind us all about the benefits of slowing down and reflecting.  I came across a post written by Leo Babauta in which he encourages us to “Breathe”.  My hope for you is that you give yourself the gift of time and take advantage of this simple way to “be in the moment”.

Breathe.

Breathing can transform your life.

If you feel stressed out and overwhelmed, breathe. It will calm you and release the tensions.

If you are worried about something coming up, or caught up in something that already happened, breathe. It will bring you back to the present.

If you are discouraged and have forgotten your purpose in life, breathe. It will remind you about how precious life is, and that each breath in this life is a gift you need to appreciate. Make the most of this gift.

If you have too many tasks to do, or are scattered during your workday, breathe. It will help bring you into focus, to concentrate on the most important task you need to be focusing on right now.

If you are spending time with someone you love, breathe. It will allow you to be present with that person, rather than thinking about work or other things you need to do.

If you are exercising, breathe. It will help you enjoy the exercise, and therefore stick with it for longer.

If you are moving too fast, breathe. It will remind you to slow down, and enjoy life more.

So breathe. And enjoy each moment of this life. They’re too fleeting and few to waste.

Enjoy your week! And take time to Breathe

“Realize deeply that the present moment is all you ever have.”- Eckhart Tolle
