The fact that it is snowing today on Halloween (jeepers) got me thinking of the holidays that are going to be here in a blink. I am determined to have a zen holiday season & winter ahead. And zen - to me - does not mean that this season will lack the festive vibe that we all love so much.
Zen is the sprinkles on top of overall wellness. Whenever you are truly loving yourself & making wellness a lifestyle, a feeling of 'zen' starts to come through your pores. It just takes over.
The Urban Dictionary defines zen as "One way to think of zen is this: a total state of focus that incorporates a total togetherness of body and mind. Zen is a way of being. It also is a state of mind.
Zen is a 'way of being' just as wellness is a 'way of living'. Combine the both and well, you will have a blast because both bring so much JOY to life!
Now that we understand 'zen', I wanted to share 5 things that I am personally doing to create a zen holiday season and winter ahead. I hope that my ideas create a mental stirring of your own to get you thinking of how to really bring some zen-joy-wellness into your holiday season & chilly months ahead!
5 Tips to Create a Zen Holiday Season & Winter ahead:
Combining these 5 approaches to the holidays - for me - guarantees a lot more zen than any previous holiday & winter season. I never thought to 'prepare' for a winter season but due to last winter being so brutal and the stress I have felt during some holidays (being so hectic), my mind turned to wellness this year. What are some ideas that you incorporate wellness & an overall feeling of zen into your holiday season and winter?
And Happy Halloween everyone!
