And now the more important question: if you are stressed this holiday season, how are you coping? Wherever I go, I see people rushing and trying to make decisions on the spot as to what to buy, how to get to their next stop in time... stressed faces everywhere! Whatever is going on during the day, I'm trying to wind down a bit in the evening.
How do you de-stress? Do you meditate? Breathing exercises? Yoga? Going for a jog? What really works for you?I am trying to journal everyday. Writing things down on paper relaxes me and the problems begin to seem a bit smaller. Usually, I have multiple journals going at the same time. But right now, I am happy to have consolidated things into one journal. It's my Holidays 2015 Memory Journal. I am not all caught up, but every day, I write a page. Not too many bells and whistles, just writing how I truly feel and what's going on around me. Every now and then I add a tag when I have more to say, add a few photos for a visual of life right now to tell the whole story and some embellishments from the Painterly Christmas Memory Journal Kit and 12 Days of Christmas Add-on kit. Here are some pages from my journal.
Don't be shy!
