Making a point not to miss my daily yoga practices 2. And, consciously choosing fresh and nourishing over sweet and chocolatey :). I'm slowly learning, when things are the busiest and I think, "I'll just skip yoga/meditation today" or "I don't have time for lunch"...that is actually when I need it the most or else the chances of overwhelm and sweet cravings knocking on my door is much more likely. :) I know it's not as easy as it sounds...but even when you're on the go....grabbing an afternoon smoothie over a pumpkin latte or Chipotle Veggie Bowl over some other kind of fast food is an alternative that is most likely going to give you a boost in energy rather than make you feel dull and lethargic. And sometime my meditations may only happen for 10 mins...but in my book a little is better than none. Being hard on ourselves does not really help stress levels, lol :)....believe me, I know! What's in your HOLIDAY SELF- CARE TOOLBOX? Leave me a comment below....I'd love to hear what you do! Before I go, I wanted to give you a little sneak peek into this month as we have a lot of special and fun things coming up!
