Feeling the pressure of the holidays build? Find some release with these tips to help you thrive through the season and beyond.
Get PresentOne of the most valuable gifts you can give your family, and yourself, this holiday season, isn’t something you can buy at the store. The gift of presence—being able to be truly in the moment with your loved ones, leaving behind the stress and expectations that often come with this time of year—can help foster an energy of calm and relaxation that will radiate to those around you. But how can you cultivate this energy shift? Meditation can be a great way to de-stress, relax, unwind, and get present. Check out these earlier posts on Flora’s blog that go over the basics of meditation and provide some helpful suggestions to get you started, then take your practice to the next level: http://blog.florahealthy.com/what-is-meditation/ http://blog.florahealthy.com/meditation-part-ii/ Chances are, with a bit of self-care time invested in meditation, you’ll be energized and inspired to tackle the holidays, and radiate a renewed sense of love and gratitude.
