It’s a very busy time of the year full of holiday shopping, long work hours, year-end meetings, goal-setting for 2013, dinners, parties and other events. And I’m full of anxiety… attempting to accomplish everything I set out to do before the year is over. Am I the only one that’s feeling the pressure? Any good tips for maintaining a sense of balance during this time of the year? I’m getting enough sleep; I’m sticking with my usual meditation routine, allowing time for myself and making self-care a priority… Yet I still feel a bit overwhelmed. Please share your advice for coping with life’s ups and downs… I’d love to hear what you do to stay sane.
