Prioritise plans and parties: It may be tempting to give up on your fitness goals over Christmas and go to every single party you’re invited to, but to avoid risking stress and burn out, it’s OK to say no. Identify everything that is a 'must do' or 'must attend' and draw a line under or gracefully decline the rest.
Practice self-care: small or large, give yourself a self-care gift every day. Be present in the experience of the time. Do something to nourish your body, mind or soul. Notice how this fills you with a sense of peace and has a positive effect on your wellbeing.
Exercise differently: Try something seasonal like ice skating or going for a long, winter walk. Plus, exercising in the cold burns more calories than doing the same workout indoors!
Meditate: One of the simplest and easiest ways to harness your inner peace is to focus on your breathing and practice meditation. For more tips, see our blog post about practicing mindfulness: http://www.bodhi-movement.co.uk/blog/tips-for-practising-mindfulness.
Random acts of kindness: do something kind each day. Smile at a stranger or buy them a coffee. Email a friend you haven’t spoken to for a while to tell them how much you appreciate them.
