Are you eagerly awaiting the most wonderful time of the year, or does the sound of mince-pies and mistletoe fill you with dread? If December feels more fretful than festive, perhaps it's time to mindfully re-connect with yourself through meditation or yoga, or even time for a new adventure?
Taking responsibility for our own well-being, opens the door to connecting with the infinite source. We must fill our cup up, nourish ourselves in order to give to others, creating deep inner fulfillment. In the darkest part of the year, this takes a little extra effort and planning, and with a full diary, self care can be low priority.
Being mindful of small changes and the tipping point that these can amount to, over days and weeks is not to be underestimated. Making sure we stay adequately hydrated, getting a few early nights in before the party season, and remembering to prioritise some time for the things we found so easy in the sun are all ways to top up. But refreshing and creating deep wellbeing can be more of a task.
There are so many routes and so many elements to creating wellbeing, which is why we feel the immersion of a retreat is a fantastic way of removing the distractions and concentrating on what is important.
How do you prioritise YOUR self care around Christmas? How can you invest in your health and make the best start to 2017?
We'd love to hear from you...
