During the busy hustle and bustle of the season, it is easy to fall out of the habits that are sustaining to us. With good tidings of the season come all of the extra activities that we try to fit into our schedules. Christmas shopping, gift wrapping, and holiday parties bring joy to ourselves and others. However, many of us with an already full schedule start skipping workout classes, morning meditation, and stop making healthy eating choices during this time. Of course, it’s with good intentions of doing it tomorrow because the gift needs to be wrapped for the party that night, etc.
This is a time when one needs to keep strong to the daily habits that make them happy and keep them healthy. Whether it’s waking up ten minutes early to be able to meditate or choosing to bring a healthier snack for the holiday party, little choices make a big difference. Black onyx is a great stone to help foster self mastery and self control. If you are feeling centered from meditating (even as much as ten minutes) you will be able to complete all your tasks that day with more ease.
It helps to prioritize the upcoming holiday tasks and parties. If it is too overwhelming, then see what holiday festivities can be eliminated or shortened. I find that blue lace agate and tiger eye help me in organizing and prioritizing all the various daily and holiday related tasks. Plus blue lace agate is very calming and soothing.
Having a fun festive holiday season while continuing healthy daily routines can be done. It just takes a little prioritizing and realizing that health and peace should be at the top of that list. From that perspective, everything else falls more easily into place.
