The health of our relationships depend on how we show up - not what we show up with. So as the holidays approach, cherish the moments you have with your loved ones WHILE they are happening.
Use your mindfulness practice to express how you feel, when you feel it, to the people you care about most. Because we all know deep down that being present, really being there, is more important than anything material we could give or receive. It will not only feel good, but it will do good for YOUR health AND the ones you care about most ... A Harvard study that began in 1938 and is still running today ( 😳) found that “Healthy relationships protect people from life’s discontents, help to delay mental and physical decline, and are better predictors of long and happy lives than social class, IQ, or even genes.” So whenever you can, forget about the crazy rush to make everything perfect, and just focus on being present, moment by moment with those you hold dear.
