5 Secrets To Turn Your Holidays From Stressed To Success!

We can choose to replace them with thoughts that make us feel successful and confident and good enough. For example, reminding yourself you are making the best choices you can to be in integrity with your greatest values and priorities over the holiday season.

Tip #5: Let Go  

One of the best ways we can release and reduce our stress is learning to let go. Letting go of our tendency to be so attached to the outcomes.  Letting go of the need for things to be perfect. When we are so focused on the outcome and perfection, it is difficult to enjoy the moment.

For example, when we are choosing gifts for someone we might feel worry or concern over whether they will like the gift or if it is the “perfect” gift. As a result it can be hard to fully enjoy the process of giving. Or we experience stress about choosing which family to visit and when over the holidays. As a result we are so worried that we have upset someone we never completely enjoy whom we have chosen to spend time with.

When we make decisions based on our deepest values and priorities and learn to say no to those that don’t agree with them is the moment we can give ourselves permission to “let go.”  Knowing that we are living in integrity with who we are at the core no matter what the outcome might be.

What are you ready to “let go” of this holiday season so you can free yourself to experience the true joy and fulfillment of this time of the year with your family? I’d love to hear your comments below. For more tips visit www.thepassionshift.com
