Whether you’re excited or mildly dreading Christmas (I don’t like to presume which), here are a few ideas of things you can do over the holidays to boost your well-being.
1. Catch up on sleep at night
2. Gaze at a fire (a candle flame will do)
3. Breathe in the smell of pine or cinnamon
4. Have a day (or more) without alcohol
5. Get outside during daylight hours and walk
6. Take a screen break every day
7. Enjoy a lie-down during the day
8. Listen or watch something completely different to broaden your mind
9. Keep hydrated with water
10. Enjoy your food more by eating slowly
11. Help someone else out
12. Do what works best for you for your best self
Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Something to remember at this ‘giving’ time of year perhaps…
A rich person is not someone who has more, but someone who desires less.
(True, or a bit bah, humbug?!)
Flexibility is often viewed as a sign of body fitness. But what about a flexible mind? When we consider that our minds can be flexible too, we can adjust to and accommodate most things, whilst maintaining a sense of well-being. True tolerance makes us flexible. The ability to bend without breaking is linked to the amount of tolerance we develop.
When we are fully flexible in our minds, we are then more able to adjust to unexpected, negative and difficult situations. Perhaps something to consider at this time of year… And whilst you’re at it, avoid sitting or slumping for too long and try to move around a bit more to maintain your body’s flexibility!
