Very often with the holidays slowly creeping up on us we forget to take time out to just sit. Taking just even a simple moment will change your day for the good. So with Thanksgiving creeping up on us here in Canada, take the moment to just sit and think about yourself.
While this sounds selfish, it is not. When we take time to do something for ourselves out of our busy day, we further ourselves. Perhaps you wanted to enroll in a course to further yourself or finally tell someone your feelings. This moment will allow you to follow through.
This moment can also help you recall things that need to be done for the holidays even. How many times over my life have I forgotten to add something to the shopping list? Too many to count, this moment would allow the mind to become calm and you will gain focus for what is to be next.
If you really need a true moment just for you then try to meditate or take time to brew a cup of tea. Such simple acts will lift your mood and help you focus.
