Can you feel the holiday hoopla momentum picking up? We’re on the cusp of more celebratory nights out, less sleep, added stress and obligation anxiety.

And because you can’t pour out of an empty cup, we tend to end up cranky, resentful, exhausted and well, feeling like crap.

If feeling frazzled all holiday season long isn’t serving you anymore, PAUSE before being swept up, and know this:

“You have a say in your life. There is so much that we can intentionally select in creating our reality.

What comes into our cupboard and closets, what goes into our bodies, the people with whom we spend our free time, the gifts we give, how we worship, the thoughts we focus on.

Clutter is a choice. Anger is a choice. Resentment is a choice. So are spaciousness, flexibility, laughter, compassion, tenderness, and resilience.” – Danielle Laporte

So, before it all begins, I encourage you to take the time to get clear on how you want to feel within yourself throughout and on the other side of the holidays.

Get curious with what helps you to feel calm, at ease and nourished. Begin by brainstorming options and then experimenting with what will work for you.
