The holidays are upon us, and if you’re like me, you’re running around like mad, decking those halls and jingling those bells and doing everything that you can to make this a wonderful holiday for everyone.

Sometimes, though, when we take on too much, we end up giving ourselves stress. This is unhealthy, and can make us miserable and no fun to be around. Stress can actually spoil a holiday.

So stop. Give yourself a present. Give the people who love you a present too.

Take a moment or two now and just r-e-l-a-x…

This is a long video. You don’t have to watch all of it. You don’t have to do anything in particular.

You can watch the flames and take deep breaths. You can use flame gazing to chill out. You can put it on as company as you wrap a few more gifts or write a few more cards.

Just take a moment and relax. The holidays will still be here when you’re ready for them.

Happy (and relaxed) holidays

Well the holidays are fast approaching, and they bring presents and good food and fellowship and lights..

And stress..

No matter which spiritual path one follows, with everything that folks try to accomplish during the holidays, it’s not surprising if folks feel overwhelmed, cranky or downright “bah -humbug” at points. Even if we’re working hard at making merry, we all can use a break or two during the holiday season

Let me make you an early holiday gift of one…

(It’s a gift that keeps giving…)

The next time you’re feeling anxious, angry, overwhelmed or down, instead of suffering, try this:

Take a deep breath, and

Look up at the ceiling.

(Repeat as needed…)

Give it a try now. Think of something that brings you down (income taxes, your least-favorite co-worker, cleaning out the fridge…) Notice how it makes you feel,where it hits you in the body and in the spirit…

Then breath deep and look up. Feel the difference?

While it’s no substitute for Prozaac, most people find that when they do this, they feel more positive, centered and able to cope with whatever’s going on in their lives.

Why’s this work?

When we’re stressed, we breath short and shallow. Breathing deeply and slowly triggers a mind-body connection saying “all is well”, and actually puts us in a better place, health and emotion-wise. Looking up seems to strengthen this reaction (and when I’m facing challenges, I find looking up valuable for spiritual reasons as well…)

I like to think that we’re all hardwired with ways to change our beliefs, heal ourselves, find our centers and create our own best lives.

And, by the by, this technique is not just for the holidays, but works all year long. …

In any case, remember next time you’re feeling overwhelmed or down, breath deep and look up… and have a better day (or holiday.)

Acupressure is one of the alternative health techniques I use to keep me up and dancing. I like it because

  • you can do it yourself
  • it’s easy to learn the basics
  • it’s easy to do
  • it doesn’t take a huge time commitment in my busy life
  • there are few side effects.
  • and it worksworksworks :)

I’m going to be teaching a couple of classes at Changing Times, Changing Worlds this November that include acupressure. One is A Touch of Acupressure, which is acupressure to relieve the ailments that crop up when you’re at conventions, and the other is Alternative Pain Management , a hands on, practical tour of alternative practices, including acupressure, for dealing with pain.

Want to know more? Check out my post Acupressure and Me on the blog for Changing Times, Changing Worlds. For that matter, ramble about the blog and the website itself and get acquainted with some of the other speakers and events

Hope to see you at Changing Times, Changing Worlds
