During this busy time in our year, when the holidays are fast approaching, it is so easy to get caught up in all the hustle & bustle. It is also a time of even greater stress in our lives as we try to get a multitude of things done.
We may worry about money or running out of time to get things done. We may worry about all the family we will be seeing or the lack of family at this time when others are with theirs.
Even when we are excited about the upcoming holidays and if things are all coming together perfectly, it can still be stressful on our emotional and physical selves.
Do take time to reflect on all the good things that are in your life, no matter how small. Take time to touch base with family, friends, neighbors or others you haven't seen in a while - just to say hello. Smile at a stranger - you may just make their day!
Focus on the positive things and more will follow!
