Stretched too thin?

Are you stretched too thin and feeling stressed?

Finding time in the span between Thanksgiving and the December holidays can be a huge challenge. And I am guessing that many people feel like they are stretched too thin.

Are you one of them? Here we are approaching mid-December, with Hanukkah, Solstice, Kwanzaa, Christmas and New Year’s all waiting in the wings.

So, how do you prepare for the celebrations that your family cherishes?

And how do you get everything else done, and take care of yourself, too?

It’s a tall order, AND it’s most definitely do-able.  You’ll need to do some planning, find your comfort zone, set your boundaries, and then be prepared to be disciplined about your follow-through.

Stretched Too Thin? Self-Care is Key.

You may not have all the “me time” that you really need. You may have to make some compromises or fit things in. And you may need to accept a less than optimal way. That’s how it works for most of us. The thing is, it only works, if you savor the time that you do have.

Whether you have five minutes or an afternoon, make sure you are present for the time that you devote to yourself. Savor and cherish.

And don’t forget to breathe.

Know Thyself:

When you’re stretched too thin, navigating the holidays in a way that enhances everyone’s experience, including your own, also involves staying within your comfort zone.  That, in turn, means knowing yourself, and then making choices that put that knowledge into practice.

What happens when you commit to working within your comfort zone?

As you create exciting holiday alternatives, remember; every time you add something, you must let go of something else. This involves setting boundaries.

If you usually spend time juggling others’ needs, managing your time according to your holiday comfort level may seem revolutionary. And yet everyone benefits when you set boundaries. By taking the responsibility to work within your circle of contentment and competence, you give everyone the best of yourself.

Do you know your comfort zone?  How will you put what you know into practice?
