I would like to wish all of you a very happy and healthy holiday season! During this busy and festive time of the year, many of us can find ourselves (ironically) getting stressed and overwhelmed with all the holiday activities and demands – let alone, family triggers. Sometimes it does seem challenging to find the holiday spirit. Crowds and traffic in NYC are at all-time high, and that can wear thin as well.
So this is the perfect opportunity (whether it is a full class or only 15 or 30 minutes at home), to find some quiet time for reflection and contemplation, gentle yoga and breathwork, qigong, meditation, or guided relaxation. By continuing with our healing practices during busy times, we can counter any negative effects of mental stress. Not to mention, our bodies will feel more balanced – even if we are partaking in the egg nog or, my personal favorite, Swedish glogg!
So with that in mind, let us all enjoy the festivities, and maintain our balance and equanimity too!
