We all know that 2020 has been a challenging year, but we can also recognize that it has been a year of incredible resilience. As the holidays are only a week away and 2021 begins in less than two weeks, now is the time to recharge, reset, and find some quiet peace.
It's so easy to feel overwhelmed around the holidays with the never-ending to-do lists. This year, I urge you all to pause and show yourself some extra love and self-care. Here are a few ways you can truly enjoy the holidays and find that peace:
Don't give in to the toxic emotions and tensions that surround you, whether it is within the workplace, your home, or in conversations with family or friends. This doesn't mean that you can't be sensitive, practice empathy, and try to lift the spirits of those around you, but be careful to not let those strong emotions and tensions affect your own well-being.
Show yourself some TLC
You've done the best you could to make it through the year, and to take care of those around you. Set yourself free and give yourself the gift of no regrets this holiday season. Be kind to yourself and do something special, like prepare your favorite warm beverage and make some cozy time for relaxation.
Focus on the positive We can admit that this year was filled with negative happenings, but if we are only choosing to focus on the negative, then we are not recharging and finding inner peace. Choose instead to focus on the positive, on the things that are going well for you. Allow gratitude to come flowing in and you will feel so much happier.
Continue to embrace the things you enjoy most
Whether you've taken up some new hobbies this year, or you want to get lost in a good book, set aside time to enjoy the things you love. And with the holidays, there's even more you can do to sprinkle in your favorite things, such as baking, watching holiday movies, and listening to some jolly holiday tunes.
