While chocolates or bottle of wine is always received with a smile, this holiday season, gift mindfully. After a year like 2018, everyone’s body and mind could use a break from toxic sugar, stimulants and alcohol. Right now, the greatest gift of all may just be helping someone feel better and sleep easier.
An exercise on mindful giving:
Take a deep breath in, and breath out. Another breath in, and breathe out. Now really relax your face muscles, your jaw, your tongue. Say to yourself: I am peace. I am strong. I am calm. I love myself. The world is an abundant, ever flowing, loving place. I am enough.
When you connect to yourself and make space for mindfulness, you are more likely to gift from the heart and a place of love and connection. Avoid shopping malls, Amazon.com or “Holiday Sales” as these environments are well planned to through you off center and spend unnecessarily in the name of giving.
Three Rules for a Mindful Holiday:
- Don’t kill yourself trying to show people how much you love them.
- Do not go home to visit family if it damages your mental health.
- If someone comments on your ripped arms, tell them how much you love Pure Vibe:)
Gifting presents to your family and friends can be a great way to express your love and gratitude. Just make sure you’re doing it from a place of joy, for yourself and the other person. Sharing the gift of health wellness is always in style!
