Need a nice simple "rule" to help you through the holiday season? Try this one:
Keep it simple!
When you find yourself stressed, running here and there, trying to please everyone, stop. Pause. Be still. Breathe. Ask yourself: "Is this really what the holy season is about? Is it about stress and tension? Is it about buying the perfect present? Or is it about being Present?"
Keep it Simple!
Being present in your body, in your life, is the greatest gift you can give yourself or anyone else. Isn't this what life on earth is about? Yes! The more you are present, the more others can benefit from your presence.
