Paleoista Holiday Tip # 29: Savor the Moment

During the holidays, it’s all too easy to get caught up in the hectic nature of buying gifts, planning parties and making sure we’ve got every last little detail checked off of our to-do lists.

It’s so important to take just a little time each day to savor the moment, the pure enjoyment of the nostalgia of Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza or whichever special day you celebrate.  

Whether it’s a quick break mid day with your feet up and a nice cup of tea if you’re at home  the long weekend from work, watching your favorite classic film or a stop into your local bookshop to peruse the best new offerings of the season, stopping to smell the proverbial roses and remembering what this time of year is all about.

There is so much to be thankful for, yet we all tend to get caught up in the day to day trials and tribulations of life’s daily grind.

Try and take time to really be in the moment; it’s quite refreshing to see how quickly your perspective can change from feeling stressed out and pressed for time to being calm, present and filled with gratitude…which is a particularly nice way to spend the holidays.
