The holidays are coming - time for good cheer, happy memories... and the stress of getting through it all unscathed. This time of year can be a lot of fun, and it can also be incredibly stressful. There's travel, family relationships, cooking, cleaning, cold weather, shopping, and any number of other things to stress out about. There's also the anxiety of "what if" that gets your mind spinning: What if my sister pushes my buttons? What if Fred gets drunk and hits on mom again? You know what I mean - the commercials make it all look perfect, but in real life it's a whole lot messier.
Before you get too spun up about all the things that could go wrong, take a deep breath and relax for 10 minutes with this guided meditation (below). You'll learn how to banish the worry and create a calm and peaceful place for yourself any time you need to.
Here's to your calmest, happiest holiday season!
