Sunday Wisdom // Beating Seasonal Stress

Sunday Wisdom // Beating Seasonal Stress
With the coming Holiday Season, we can inevitably expect those annual stressful pressures of entertaining, shopping, cooking, cleaning, wrapping, etc...sandwiched between parties and traditional family meals that offer perhaps one-too-many temptations to over-indulge. The irony here is that if you take any of those “obligations” outside the realms of the holidays, they alternatively provide moments of calm, self reflection, self care, valuable family time, and selfless thinking. It might not help that the season for holidays piles one right on top of the other, but we’re aiming to take one day at a time anyways, aren’t we? Living in the present, which is a gift in and of itself. So this year, I challenge you to change your perspective on any anticipated “Seasonal Stress". Here are few ideas...
  1. Approach each of your goals and obligations with gratitude.
  2. Give thanks for a family to feed, a house to entertain in, a child to indulge.
  3. Remember how you used to shop in order to “de-stress.”
  4. Appreciate how cleaning up the last bits of dinner party/holiday remnants gives you back a bit of quiet time.
  5. Take a soft moment to reflect on the joys of sharing the love, light, and joy that so powerfully fill these few days of the year - these “Holy” days.

For me, this time of year brings 40+ performances of The Nutcracker! A lot of professional dancers dread this season because it is so taxing on the body...show after show after show... missing out on all of those holiday parties and the rush of Christmas shopping.. If I'm honest, it does seem a bit ominous, but on the bright side, it gives me 40+ chances to make magic for children! Every performance brings to life snow flakes and flowers and dancing dolls and Sugarplum fairies..I get to call this my job! We have so much to be grateful for. Let us seek an enlightened perspective on the Season this time around!
