The Most Wonderful Time of the Year?
It's the time of year for Ho! Ho! Ho!, Happy Hanukkah, and all things Holly Jolly! Sadly, there's often an undercurrent that's at odds with what is supposed to be "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year." People don't lay down their responsibilities or cares, but they often add more. The heartaches that plagued them in November are just as present in December.
So what exactly can an over-worked, over-wrought, over-stressed person do? It comes down to two words: Self Care. It's like the situation on an airplane where you are asked to put on your own oxygen mask before assisting others in case of an emergency. Why? Because if you can't breathe, you won't be of help to anyone, yourself included.
There are many excellent ways to provide this self care, with only a minimal investment of time or money. You can go for a walk, take a bubble bath, or take the time to enjoy a favorite song. Another excellent option is to stretch and strengthen your body.
BlindAlive can help you do just that with two new workouts that have arrived just in time to de-stress your holidays. Consider taking the time to enjoy our Whole Body Stretch or Chair Yoga programs. They'll help you to become more calm and energized, and if getting more fit is on your list of things to do in 2017, either one will gently start you along that path.
I would like to take this time to wish all who have read my posts a very happy and healthy holiday season, and a 2017 full of wonder, joy, and vitality!
