Stay Calm–It’s The Most Wonderful Time!

Happy Holidays And A Wonderful New Year!

As wonderful as this time of year can be, it brings stress with it. From decorating to other’s standards, to getting the house in shape, to finding just the right gift, I offer these 3 pieces of advice:

1. The gifts shouldn’t mean that much. Enjoy time with friends and family. Take time for you!

2. Try to get some quiet time. Parties are loads of fun, but take some down-time. Take time for you! 

3. Be kind to yourself. Remember to breath when the stress rises. Deep cleansing breathing works wonders. Enjoy yourself and keep hope for the New Year!

Happy Holidays from Karl Robb, Writer at ASoftVoice.com! Thanks for reading my blog!

  1. The holidays can be difficult! Unfortunately when a person has family problems, the holiday season may bring on depression. Unfortunately this is true for me.

    Your suggestion of deep cleansing breathing is a good one. And so is taking some quiet time to reflect on what is good in your life. That often will give balance against what (or who) brings on life’s difficulties.

    Warm wishes to all this holiday season – your friend, jean
    PS. And I really enjoy your blog!
