In my world, Christmas is always a busy time of year. Up on the mountain when other play we work. Our busiest time of the year is often the Christmas Holidays. A busy work schedule has never deterred my family from enjoying Christmas. Our Christmas tradition is skiing as a family on Christmas day.
When life gets extra busy, I find it important to focus in on what matters. I find it important to honor myself and respect the energy (and or lack of energy) that I have. December is tough month at the office, at home, in to do’s and in general. The lack of daylight totally cramps my style and makes everything seem harder.
When life is superfluously busy, I have to remember to schedule myself some “ME Time.” It’s okay to cut back on routine, as long as you still make time for yourself. Exercise daily; try 20min instead of an hour. Take a time out to breathe and meditate. I always find that stress dissolves and life falls into place with breath.
