Holiday season

Published in the Republican 2019

The holiday season is a time to enjoy the company of loved ones, rituals and traditions.  Yoga trains us to deal with the change of seasons and the stress of the holidays.  For example, winter signals a time to slow down with fewer daylight hours and colder temperatures.

To deal with the change of seasons and the holidays, we become aware of the need for more meditation and distressing yoga poses.  It is important to listen to our minds and bodies in order to increase our energy level while giving ourselves the self-care that we need.

Even though the holidays are a time to celebrate, eat and exchange gifts, yoga reminds us to be mindful.  One important aspect to remember is to take time to rest and conserve our energy levels.  Always take the time to sit in silence to be in the present moment.  By doing this, we are reminding ourselves what is important in life.  Most importantly, practicing karma yoga, the act of servicing others, is the true meaning of the holiday season.

I have always believed in treating others with love in the same manner as we want to be treated.  This includes how to treat people, giving gifts and being respectful.
