Maybe you can relate to this?
For 30+ years I've gone all out with tree decorating, house cleaning, shopping, cooking, setting the beautiful table, and wrapping gifts. I even read The Night Before Christmas every Christmas eve to my children and put cookies and milk out for Santa.
Whew....When I think back on all the years I worked so hard to create a magical experience for my family, honestly, it kind of wears me out. Often times, I would end up in bed by Christmas Day afternoon, exhausted, watching Disney movies.
Don't get me wrong....I loved every minute of it, especially when my mom was still alive.
This year I've decided to take it much easier and pass the torch on to my children more, and just relax and enjoy. As I reflect on the Christmases gone by, I realize I didn't really take time for myself. It's crazy to think about the overwhelming exhaustion that hit me after Christmas presents and our big breakfast on Christmas morning with the entire family, and the dynamics of all the in-laws and personalities, etc.
I haven't even talked about office parties! OMG! That too...always wanting to show up with best foot forward and remember to gift those wonderful co-workers, clients and bosses. It really starts to take a toll on your wallet too. When you add it all up this time of year can get a bit hectic, making it extremely important to take good care of yourself. Whether you have an upcoming party to attend, numerous gifts to buy, or a long list of family activities; it's easy for your stress levels to skyrocket.
Maybe, like me back then, you forget to stop and smell the joy. There is an often-overlooked solution to self-care, and controlling anxiety during these busy times and it exists in the form of hypnosis! Hypnosis can help you relax more and focus on enjoying yourself throughout the holidays instead of stressing out about everything going on around you.
