While the holiday season is a time full of gatherings with friends and family, many of us can find ourselves feeling stressed and overwhelmed.
At Healing Hands, we prioritize the health of our mind, body, and soul. We believe that in order to promote wellness in your life, these three key elements need to be in balance. We incorporate this into our teachings by offering classes such as Spiritual Healing and hosting events like our Holistic Living Retreat. We are passionate about giving our students every opportunity to enhance their lives, and in turn, the lives of others.
Juggling the health of each of these elements on a regular basis can be difficult, so it is especially important to stay mindful during this time of year.
Try these tips to keep you feeling balanced during this hectic season:
Mind: Stay Organized
Although December is known as the most wonderful time of the year, it can also be the most chaotic time of year. It is easy to get caught up in the clutter of tasks when you are not organized. Whether it is your work life or personal life, planning ahead is the best way to steer clear of stress. Creating lists and scheduling out your days can keep you on track and help you establish a productive agenda.
Body: Eating Clean
The holiday season includes many parties, which means a ton of delicious food. It can be easy to overindulge in your favorite holiday cookies or that extra glass of spiked eggnog, but try to limit your unhealthy intake as much as possible. A great way to ensure a healthy balance is by saving your guilty pleasures for the weekend. If you maintain a clean diet during the week, don’t be afraid to enjoy yourself at your next holiday party.
Soul: Morning Meditation
Staying grounded during this time is extremely important for your overall health. With emotions running on high from everyone around you, it can be easy to start feeling anxious. Creating time for yourself is crucial. By taking even as little as 5 minutes of your morning to meditate can set a positive and productive tone for your day. Now is the best time to start a meditation routine as you can carry it into the new year.
The team at Healing Hands School of Holistic Health wants you to cherish the holidays. Taking care of your mind, body, and soul during this time of year will help you genuinely enjoy this eventful season.
