The holidays can take a toll on our personal habits and commitment to yourself. We get so busy and so wrapped up in the extra holiday cheer that we put ourselves on the back burner. Well, this is not the time to put YOU on the back burner. These hectic times, especially holidays, are when you need to pay extra attention to your mindful practices. Just taking 4 minutes a day, to breathe deeply and exhale deeply, can reduce anxiety and tension. Get motivated and keep yourself motivated by scheduling 4 minutes of mindful breathing each day. You will be surprised and delighted when suddenly you find yourself easily spending 10 minutes in mindful practice. The benefit - you won't feel negative stress as much during the hectic holiday season and you'll be able to enjoy the holiday cheer!
