3 Quick Tips to Staying Present During
the Holiday Season
There's something magical about presents. Whether it's wrapped in exquisite paper complete with colour coordinated ribbon, or tightly wrapped in newspaper, like the cooked cray from my neighbour recently, presents have the power to make us feel special.
There is also something magical about presence. In fact, I believe that presence is the greatest present you can give someone. Presence is about being present. It's about being self-aware. At its core, presence is awareness.
Here are my three top tips to stay present with yourself and others.
#1. An Attitude of Gratitude
Start your day with an attitude of gratitude. It's so easy to overlook the little things that go together to create your world. I love acknowledging the fact I'm alive when I wake up, knowing there are people in the world that won't be experiencing that today. An attitude of gratitude reinforces joy and positivity in your daily life because it focuses a light on what is resonating with you.
#2. Check in with Yourself Before You Check in with the World.
Do you reach for your phone and check your emails, check the news, or your social media feeds before checking in and connecting with yourself? Every time you check into the digital world, you check out of your own world. When you wake up, spend some time to truly be with yourself, even if it's a couple of minutes, before you engage with the rest of the world. Remember you are the most important person in your life.
#3. Get Some Perspective.
Perspective impacts on how you see things. My passport says I'm 159cm tall. When I think of my 8 month old grandson, I feel tall. When I think of my 188cm son, I feel small. Both of these perspectives do not change the importance of me, nor diminish my awesomeness. They simply help to remind me that I am a part of a greater whole.
This festive time of year is all about connecting, and that starts with you. Being 100% connected with yourself allows you access to a better understanding of yourself which opens up the space for you to experience your uniqueness.
Do you feel 100% connected with yourself?
If not, isn't it time you reconnected to yourself so you can
enjoy your life to the fullest?
