What are you planning to do for yourself today?
-Make sure to carry your list around with you. Try to look at it a few times today. We can forget even the simplest self-care techniques if they aren't part of how we normally move through the day.
-Remember to refrain from self-judgment. If you don't reach your goals today, don't worry. Even thinking about them is a start. If you really want it you will get it!
-Are you having fun yet? Changing habits won't work if it isn't enjoyable (of course, right?). There is a certain element of nose-to-grindstone, but expended effort can feel great.
-Regarding holiday stress, today would be the day to employ visualization techniques to imagine a series of lovely holidays ::Om shanti shanti::
Update on the list
I have been reading about intuition. There are scientists and psychologists who value the idea of intuition, and even validate it's existence. This is a link with detailed information and some ways to increase your intuitive chops. I'll let you know what works.
“Love what you do and do what you love. Don't listen to anyone else who tells you not to do it. You do what you want, what you love. Imagination should be the center of your life.”
