It is that time of year! Whether you say Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanza, or just simply Happy Holidays, the holiday season is upon us. I find this time of year, I flux between anxious and excited almost every  second. So how do you find time to just breathe? To embrace the pure joy of the holiday season, and to focus on the important things- family, friends, love, joy… wine, cookies!

You have to purposefully invest in you. I know it sounds hokey or cheesy, but if you don’t invest in taking care of you who will? Commit to giving yourself at least 30 seconds of pure silence. If you have to lock yourself in a closet, a bathroom or in the trunk of your car… just 30 seconds to listen to the small voice in the back of your head saying “it’s going to be ok.” Suddenly, you’ll find the hustle and bustle of this season isn’t so stressful, and for just 30 seconds… you’ll see the beauty that is this season!

‘Tis the Season to take care of you!
