Wellness Wednesday

Be Present This Holiday Season

Whether you are going to be the host or a guest this year, the most important element for a happy Thanksgiving gathering is the reminder to be present. When we are present, we have such a greater chance at enjoying everyone around us, dancing with unexpected twists and turns and most importantly, being grateful for what we have.

Below are a three quick tips to help you be more present this holiday.

  • Be present – Take a few minutes before you leave your house or before guests arrive to breathe, relax and set the intentions to have a wonderful time.
  • Be open – Things probably won’t go exactly as you imagined – go with the flow. Embrace that new tradition, try that new recipe, have a talk with that new friend.
  • Be grateful – Thank your host or thank those around you for attending this holiday. Share specific things you enjoyed and appreciated.

We wish you and your family a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!
