Tis the Season……………….
Tis the season to be busy?
Do you feel like the lead up to Christmas is full?
Do you have long list of things to do?
As I write this there is only 22 days until Christmas Day.
Yes, 22 days!
I love this time of year I love the whole celebration of Christmas and to me it is really important. I love the decorations up at the shops, I love Christmas Carols and I love Christmas movies.
I want to enjoy Christmas Day and I don’t wake up on Christmas morning exhausted.
I want to embrace the whole day and soak up every bit of the experience.
How do I get to Christmas Day and still have the time to enjoy it?
Today I had the intention of getting up early and going to boxing at 8am. After boxing I had planned to go and help at one of the schools I am at.
I woke up had breakfast and then was having my coffee (I love coffee) and thinking okay I really have to hurry up if I am going to make it to boxing. In my head the plan was great but my body today was not willing. I then decided that it was okay not to go to boxing first.
I had to be kind to myself.
So, my thought is to be kind to yourself.
Look after yourself and say no to things, it is okay.
Plan your days, make a list if you need to.
Plan to have some rest time.
Schedule in to do the things that you enjoy.
Acknowledge what you have accomplished.
Does this really need to be the season to be busy?
How can we simplify the lead up to Christmas?
This afternoon I am choosing to just watch some TV and to read. This afternoon for me is a time to recharge because tomorrow I have to…………………..
Tis the season to be jolly.
