The weather is blustery, you are closing out the calendar year at work, holiday parties abound, and the malls becken...followed by a pile of presents to wrap.
Did you remember to breath?
The holidays can be a fun, exciting time, celebrating with family and friends. But they can also be stressful for many reasons--if family relationships are strained or non-existent, if money is tight, if challening travel is required. It's easy to feel frazzled.
While it's easy to let your yoga practice fall by the wayside, it's more important now then ever to connect to yourself, and to your source of faith or inspiration. If you can't get to a class, there are plenty of ways to stay grounded and connected as the holidays whiz along.
If you find yourself skipping classes over the next few weeks, for any reason, try finding a few minutes alone and take my advice. It just might help you sail through the busiest time of year feeling a little more calm, thankful, and happy.
