Holiday Self-Care Tip #3 – the Juggling Act

JugglingI’m not completely freaking out and that’s a good thing.

When you read this, I’ll be getting on a plane to visit family (where it’s warmer than Dallas.)
But yesterday morning all I could think about was how much I had to do & how there wasn’t enough time to do it. I felt a little tightness in my chest as a result of what I was thinking. Sound familiar? Preparing for Thanksgiving travel or dinner guests (or Black Friday, if you prefer) doesn’t exactly require a degree in Project Management, but it could help.
How do you juggle?

Because I don’t beieve in one-size-fits-all recommendations, try some of these on for size. They helped me manage my mini freak-out, and this morning – I feel more anticipatory excitement than overwhelm. Although there’s still plenty to do in the next 6 hours. . .

  • Accept that everything might not be perfect, but can be “good enough.
  • It’s a great time to practice that “being in the moment” mindfulness thing. Breathe.
  • Simple can be Wonderful!
  • Ask yourself what would bring you pleasure and enjoyment – right now. Do it or schedule it.
  • Mind your thoughts & say something like “I have all the time I need to attend to the important things.”

You’ve got this.
