We all want to enjoy this special time at Christmas – the sharing, the caring, fun and family.
But know it can go horribly wrong – tension, strained relationships, conflict and loneliness.
How can we avoid the pitfalls and make the most of whatever we have?
Even the people who are not looking forward to the next few weeks. Maybe you are alone, or have lost someone close, or are dealing with a challenge – is there any help out there, any comfort?
Mindfulness at Christmas – Simplicity is the answer
Yes. Instead of ‘rushing around’, ‘doing too much’, ‘getting anxious about having everything just so’ and becoming STRESSED, why not choose to cultivate Mindfulness: our capacity to be aware, right here, now.
We all have this ability naturally but our tendency is to get ‘lost’ in worrying, planning, the never ending stream of thought which makes us overlook the moment we are in. Those ordinary times which can be so special when we are there for them.
Maybe, to enjoy hearing our child’s laughter, smell good food cooking, feel an embrace, a smile, make someone happy, offer a gesture of kindness…
Mindfulness at Christmas – The best PRESENT you can give
