‘tis the season

December 14, 2011

You know how much I love the lululemon manifesto:

So it only makes sense that I write a holiday season guide-of-sorts based on some of my favorite phrases from the big red & white word collage.

Stress is related to 99% of all illness.

How to manage holiday stress:

  • Make sleep a priority.
  • Eat nourishing meals, but allow yourself the occasional treat. Especially those all-time holiday favorite fresh-baked cookies and homemade pies.
  • Practice yoga! Go for a run. Ride your bike. Dance. Sing loudly. Meditate.
  • Choose a positive thought.

That which matters the most should never give way to that which matters the least.

How to juggle a busy schedule:

  • Prioritize. We can do anything, but not everything.
  • Make lists. (Utilize this information-packed post for guidance.)
  • Be flexible. Plans change.
  • Make time for peppermint tea and hot chocolate.

Breathe deeply and appreciate the moment. Living in the moment could be the meaning of life.

How to appreciate the moment:

  • Have a meaningful (all technology aside) conversation with your friends and family.
  • Take pictures at parties, events, and family gatherings.
  • Remember why you are celebrating.
  • Look and see. Hear and listen.
