I know not everybody enjoys and thrives during the holidays. Most actually don’t and struggle. I’m sorry if this is you. Tackling our Holiday and Year-End Process™ (HYP) might help… I know that our clients that fully embrace this process fare much better than those that don’t when the new year comes around… If you struggle please Gift this process to yourself!
I’ve been writing about Gifting and Giving and how being generous is a key element to feeling happy. How Gifting and Giving adds meaning to our lives. What I’ve noticed with this Theme, is that people might be awesome at Giving to others but they are not as awesome at giving to themselves… And, I’m not talking about buying ourselves the latest new thing. For those that care for themselves with material things might not be caring for themselves in more important and impactful ways…
I’m talking about Giving ourselves the gift of our own Presence… Of good nutrition. Of exercise. Of sleep. Of free time. Of pampering. Of leisure and pleasure. Of playfulness. Of support. Of a Mindfulness Practice. Of mental spaciousness… This is being Generous with ourselves!
Remember from last week’s article, that generosity stimulates the same neural network that lights up with physical pleasure… It makes us feel happy. Being generous with ourselves gives us the benefit of not only caring for ourselves and all the benefits that come along with that, but also the benefit of actual Giving. This is a 2-for-1 deal!
It behooves us then, if we care about our happiness and wellness, if we care about our success, to Give to our ourselves as diligently as we give to our loved ones, and even strangers.
So how about it? As you are working through Aspects1-3 of the HYP, be mindful of this concept and weave it into your experience… This will make or break your month! (a little dramatization for good measure is always fun to add!).
Select and implement a way to Give to yourself that makes life easier, smoother and more rewarding. Keep it simple, choose something that recharges and replenishes. Enjoy!!
