Bring awareness to your inner stories, especially the ones that no longer serve you well. Habitual thinking patterns can cause enormous blockages in life if we do not make time to examine them in the moment. For instance, if you have always thought it is your responsibility to host a Christmas event every year due to family tradition and you now feel overwhelmed by the task, it is important that you consider different options for maintaining wellness. Perhaps you may want to collaborate with another person or the entire group and reshape the event, skip the event entirely this year, or make it smaller and more intimate event over a few different dates. There are many things we can do to continue our connections in meaningful ways and maintain mental and physical health at the same time!
