Gift to Yourself
During the holiday season we find ourselves rushing around to do so much for others yet forget the much-needed time for ourselves. We can find ourselves running ragged and yearn for peace. Yet, we go and go and go until we snap at each other and break down with exhaustion.
Gift yourself during the times of busy-ness, regardless of the time of year. Give to yourself to nurture your own well-being. Take care to care for your own needs to prevent those moments of high stress and anxiety.
During those days, weeks, and months that are full of busy times, separate yourself each day for those quiet moments. Take a short walk, alone, to release the stress, but to gather your own thoughts. Let the fresh air cleanse your cells and refresh your mind. Remove yourself away from the crowd of craziness to find silence. Let this silence in the moment to settle your rushing thoughts. Let this silence bring peace as it re-centers and grounds your body and mind.
Gift yourself the time of peace and quiet, even for a few moments to recharge your own body. Gather up divine energy at this moment to help you carry on to the next moment where you will gift yourself again.
