Take Time for a Mindful Moment

Christmas is fun, exciting, and... busy. Christmas Day can be exhausting, the children over-excited and it can all feel too much. Even though mindfulness is not itself about chilling out, taking time out for just a minute or two can result in a calmer, more relaxed state of mind.

Mindfulness is about consciously and deliberately directing attention to the present moment without making any judgements. It’s about stopping for a moment; stopping being pulled from one manic activity to another; stopping your mind and your heart from racing around. And it’s something all the family can do together. How? Follow this routine and bring some calm back into your day.

Enjoy Christmas. You’ll enjoy it more if you take a moment of mindful calm.
