Actively plan for a quiet night after the kids are in bed – even though it’s late and there are projects to check off and floors to clean and plans to make and and and… You need this – you need rest and refilling. So mark your calendar and keep this appointment! Make a cup of hot cocoa or tea. Light the room only by the Christmas tree lights and maybe a favorite scented candle, and curl up under a quilt. Use these few quiet moments to breathe, slowly and deeply, and reflect on what this season of gratitude and miracles means to you.
Take intentional time to reflect on what this season of gratitude and miracles means to you. #LessStressHolidays <– tweet this!
