As we reach the mid-point of November, people are increasingly turning their attention to the up upcoming holidays. For many this would be stressful in any year, and this year things will certainly look different due to COVID. It may first be helpful to accept that this year will be different and, to some degree, less than perfect or ideal and accepting with this that some strong emotions may arise. Practicing mindfulness will help protect us against the effects of this, and have a purposeful response rather than difficult reaction as we come up against these challenges. As such, now more than ever, it will be important to prioritize self-care, which is the focus of today’s exercise.
