Have Yourself a Mindful & Healthy Christmas
Christmas can come and go in a flash!
Seems like the years are getting shorter and faster every year don't you agree?
It's that time of the year where some of us might be feeling some mixed emotions.... we love it as it's rejoicing and celebrating God's divine love for us - the birth of Jesus Christ, we love it because we get to have some quality time with our loved ones and eat lots of yummy food and enjoy the beach and the sun! (if you are in Australia like me) My goodness! Seafood, Cherries, Mangoes, Pavlova they're all my favourites whist eating outside in the sunny beach! Those are just some of the things that i love about Christmas!
It is also the busiest time of the year.. traffic, line ups... wrapping gifts (though i enjoy this), angry and tired people.... extra and long hours at work.. and if you're an entrepreneur.. you might have some deadlines to meet, meet ups upon meet ups and so on.... it can get really stressful even for the most prepared and organised because there's simply just so much going on!
So to help us busy entrepreneurs out there, here's my top 5 tips on how to stay mindful, chilled and relaxed this Christmas + a very yummy & healthy recipe specially created by our guest blogger Alyssa Mak!
Let me start off my sharing with you my
Top 5 tips on how to stay mindful, chilled and
relaxed this busy Christmas season:
1) Write a to do list! This will help get your thoughts down on paper and will help you feel on top of your game once you start ticking those tasks off your list.
2) Create Your Quiet Space.
Find a quite spot where you can meditate every morning (or during the night if you want) to get your mind focused on the things that are really important to you.
3) Go For A Mindful Walk.
Taking a simple, short walk during the course of your day can help you order your thoughts + get fresh air!
4) Be Thankful For Little Things.
Find time each day to look for one small thing to appreciate where ever you are - a simple meal, the branch of a tree, the smile on a strangers face or the hearty rumble of a passing train. Being grateful and thankful for the little things.
5) Live Life One Day At A Time.
Enjoy every moment and be present!
