It’s an enchanting time of year. Brisk December days are brightened by glittering lights and warmed by holiday festivities with friends. However, if anxiety is beginning to creep up on anticipation as you go from here-to-there doing this-and-that on your to-do list, take a breather. As you prepare for the big party or tropical vacation, slow down and treat yourself to the gift of tranquility. There’s nothing that you need to buy or apply, only something to unwrap within yourself.
The winter solstice is almost here and nature enters her restful season. Immerse yourself in her beauty. Put away the technology and let your senses guide you to stillness, a state of being fully present. Pause. Admire the beauty of bare trees lightly coated with delicate frost. Observe how the low angle of the sun hovers close to the horizon and illuminates wispy, wintry clouds. Listen. Delight in the chatter of birds flitting about in evergreens while searching for food. In the midst of stillness, treasure the moments of luminous well-being. Feel the glimmer of peacefulness radiate outward into a glowing smile.
