So it’s officially Holiday Season! In my mind, there are endless to-do lists to check and gatherings to attend in the coming months. While I am a very extroverted person, I 100% need my quiet, alone time. It’s often difficult to say no to things when you’re always told to just show up and say yes! However, I’ve learned this year that sometimes saying no allows you to more effectively say yes to those bigger, more important things and actually show up with your undivided attention and efforts. Do you ever feel overwhelmed during this time of year? I know I do! It’s now that we must re-commit to our routines and simple things that keep us grounded - whether that’s your Sunday morning yoga class (my fave ritual), top-to-bottom apartment cleanings on Wednesdays, or nightly walks to decompress - it’s these rituals that will remind us to stop, take a few deep breaths and appreciate all that we’ve worked so hard for and enjoy the fruits of our labor. As trite as that may sound :)
