Oh my goodness, is it me or does everyone seem to be stressed out these days?! I was humbled last week when I realized that nearly everyone I talked to was stressed to the hilt about the upcoming Holiday. When it hit me, I got really sad. The Holidays are supposed to be a time of joy, togetherness and merriment. And while I know for some it can be a triggering time of year, it should not be that way for everyone. We get so stressed about finding the perfect gift or making sure the ham is done at the exact same time as the potatoes that we forget to just BE IN THE MOMENT. We forget to enjoy each others company. We forget to take some time to rest. And when we forget all those things, our bodies respond poorly. It does not have to be this way!
