IF YOU FEEL LIKE YOU HAVE TO DO IT ALL THIS MONTH…

GET PRESENT. 

That’s right…

I’m asking you to stop thinking about what you need to do tomorrow, or all the things you did yesterday, or the laundry list of things you need to do today.

Just be here now.

Being “in the moment” helps you:

  • Bring the energy so you can actually enjoy the holidays
  • Feel relaxed (not stressed or frazzled) when holiday events roll around
  • Check-in with your body to see if you need rest, food, more water, a day off, etc. 

And, it helps you stay focused on what truly matters, so you don’t get caught up in all the hustle and end up burning out. 

Just a few minutes of slowing down, catching your breath, and noticing your surroundings can help you feel better.

It sounds counterintuitive, but slowing down and checking in with yourself can actually increase your productivity and your energy levels!

So, do what you can, but be gentle with yourself. 

That means to get good sleep, eat nutritious food, and get your workout in…

But don’t forget to stop and appreciate the scenery while you get it done.

So before you get back to your to-do list today, here’s a challenge: set aside ten minutes to look at your calendar for the month and pencil in time for you to feel your best. 

Then, guard that time like you would an important business meeting or a special event that you can’t reschedule — because YOU are your most important commitment! 

Wishing you a happy & healthy month ahead,
