How to Have the Most Incredible Festive Season
Updated: Jan 26
Are you ready to design your best year yet? Christmas can invoke so many emotions from joy, sadness, anxiety, loneliness and peace. Why not turn the festive season into something to truly celebrate and enjoy.
I've created this wee ritual and reflection following on from a really rubbish last Christmas. Last Christmas was sad, cold and far from festive. This year I'm switching it up. Want to join me? Grab Your favourite festive oil. Pop a drop in your palms and take a deep inhale.
Lets look at how you want your Christmas and New Year to feel. Get clear on how you want to show up. Set some intentions, kick back and enjoy!
Find a quiet space. Grab a pen, paper and a warm drink. Here’s some questions to write and reflect on:
How was your November?
What do you need to celebrate, what was successful?
What did you not enjoy about November?
Bring forward the successes and leave the things you didn’t enjoy firmly in the past. That month is gone!
This is the last month of 2018. How was your 2018? Was it epic or poop? There is still time to turn it around.
Lets focus on the festive season now.
What brings you joy at this time? What lights you up?
What makes you anxious, edgy or you don’t enjoy?
Can you switch up any traditions to make it more enjoyable?
How do you want to feel?
Do you want to be social and visiting people, nights out or cosy at home? Go put it in the diary even if its staying at home in your pj’s go put it in the calendar and make it happen. This is your time to enjoy!
How can you honour your needs at this time? This is your chance to create. Tune into how you want to feel. What can you do to take care of yourself at this time?
What healthy habits, rituals and routines can you set to keep your December smooth and enjoyable? We’re looking at ways to reduce stress to help you physically and mentally enjoy the festive season. Maybe its getting outside for a walk, scheduling meditation time, getting enough sleep or even laying out clothes the night before.
Lets look at a new type of festive period. Write down your best bits, feelings, emotions and activities. You can design it the way you’d like it to be.
Once you’ve done this inhale that oil again and allow the universe to work its magic!
Feel into reality and love it and live it!
Have the most amazing festive period and please share some of your festive ideas. I’ love to hear.
Love and Live Your Light
