Slow Down and Do More

Has the Holiday Season officially started?

Yes, according to the stores that have already set Christmas trees and decorations.

And yes, according to my granddaughter who announced that school is off for the whole next week.

The Holiday Season is a fun time with family gathering and dinner together. It can be stressful when we try to accomplish too much in such a short time.

According to a friend who is a PhD in psychology and also a pastor, if you feel stressed, look for the signs in your life that are drawing your attention to areas where you need to re-balance yourself.

Most people are in a hurry and spend their time running from one place to another. When we are in a hurry, we become insensitive towards the people around us; we don’t care how people feel; we don’t think about the impact of our actions on others.

Time is like money to be spent. Love cannot develop without the investment of Time.

Before we become too stressed, we need to slow down. Work less and Do more; take time to Rest and Reflect. Allow ourselves to relax.

WISHING YOU ALL A HAPPY THANKSGIVING

NO VACATION PLANS:

Emotional, Sensual, Humorous

Surviving on Courage

“Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear—not absence of fear.” Mark Twain

Every day, every hour, and even every minute we are struggling to show courage, to resist fear, to face the stress in our life or around us. People believe that laugh is a good antidote to fear. I received daily jokes about the Coronavirus. At the beginning I found them highly amusing, but after five months I stopped laughing. The statistics listed on TV are heart-wrenching. In addition my husband and I lost four relatives in one month, and I am constantly worried about very dear people working in hospitals.

I don’t want to depress you with sad stories, and I don’t have the heart to relate any funny anecdotes. So I would like to share something I read.

“We need four hugs a day for survival. We need eight hugs a day for maintenance. We need twelve hugs a day for growth.” Virginia Satir

“Hugging is healthy. It helps the immune system, cures depression, reduces stress, and induces sleep. It’s invigorating, rejuvenating and has no unpleasant side effects” — Except in time of CoronaVirus!

“Hugging is nothing less than a miracle drug.” But in time of pandemic we are advised to distance and wear a mask. How can we hug a person in need of a hug? How about replacing hugs with kind words? Think of the people in your life. We all need a virtual hug and words of encouragement.

“Hugging is the ideal gift.” No, sorry! Instead of a hug, give a kind word–You can’t even smile behind your mask!

“Hugging is practically perfect. When we open our hearts and arms we encourage others to do the same.” ~ Charles Faraone
