This year-end is even more jammed packed than usual for me, what with packing and moving on top of my weekly clinical practice, a rare December teaching engagement this last weekend, starting a state non-profit chapter of reflexologists, and my stepped up social calendar.
People assume that I’m stressed, but that’s not the case. When I examine why that it is, I find that my dedication to the following not only keeps me sane, but relaxed:
* limited intake of alcohol, caffeine and sweets
* 8 to 9 hours of sleep/night
* regular reflexology and massage sessions
* a nightly review of all that I am thankful for from that day
* lots of time with friends, sharing good food, silly memories and thoughtful conversation
I want to wish you all a blessed holiday, filled with good friends, loving family, delicious food, lots of rest and time to give thanks for the year just past.
Whether you are in a snow-covered landscape or basking on the beach, the meaning of this time of year is the same. Boots or flip-flops, it doesn’t matter – I know from experience having moved from the Canadian prairies to the Sunshine state years ago.
My appreciation and gratitude to all of you. You are the reason I do what I do.
