With Halloween past us, my attention now turns to the upcoming holiday season. It can be a stressful season with decorating, cooking, hosting the influx of house guests, and the pressure to find the perfect gifts for all our loved ones. Despite all this, it is still my favorite time of year! I look forward to seeing family and friends, seeing the joy on my children’s faces as we enjoy our family traditions, and the break from our normal routine and obligations. However, amidst all the festivities it is easy to forget to actually rest! Be present and mindful in your choices this holiday season and try a few of my favorite ways to relax and re-charge.
