[ #GentleNudge ] 10Dec2014 ~ 5 Super Tips to Create a Stress-Free Holiday
Here’s Your Weekly Wednesday #GentleNudge To Get You Over The Hump…
and into the weekend!
[ A Recap ]
I often send out emails asking what my clients and audience would like to read about. I feel there is VALUE in writing, and POWER in writing that speaks to the solving of everyday problems that the motivated people and Entrepreneurs I work with have.
Recently, a client inquired about “How to move away from the stress of NOT Having enough”, essentially in order to have an abundant and exciting business as an Entrepreneur. Here’s the response I posted.
I received another ask to blog about “how to relax when I just make what I need and not more”. My client went on to ask a few other things, and I responded in a post entitled, “The Top 3 Wrong Ways To Create The Life You Want: A Story In Images”.
Since the holidays are here, today’s Gentle Nudge is about Stress Management.
[ 5 Super Tips ]

With places like Amazon, for example, you can literally send E-GiftCards that can be used any time and for gifts your family and friends will truly enjoy (because they get to choose them).
So, next year, start earlier! By this time next year, you’ll wish you did! Aside, aren’t the holidays seemingly starting earlier anyway?
There’s Only One Step
The other day, this amazing two minute video was posted on my Facebook page. In it, Oprah chats about a simple principle: At any given time, there’s only one step. So, instead of being overwhelmed with all the things you have to get done this holiday season, focus on the one thing that you can get done now, then the next, and then the next… Which brings me to #3:
I’ve been doing a 30 Day Yoga Challenge, and what I’ve learned in my 19 days is that yoga is not about poses and being flexible, contrary to popular belief. In fact, Yoga is about tapping into the power of your breath; for in the breathing comes the ability to handle anything that comes your way. So does, #4:
In my popular Gentle Nudge 3 Smart Strategies To Create More Time In Your Day, I outline the importance of learning to delegate and the reason why. If you were to only master this one tip, you’d truly become more relaxed this holiday and in your daily life. By the same token, you can reduce overwhelm by learning to
At the end of the day, you only have 24 hours. You can do everything, and you will feel exhausted, resentful and not happy in the process. Find ways to be more generous to yourself. Start by remembering that you always have the power to say no if you feel overwhelmed. Say yes to a stress-free holiday by kindly, respectfully saying NO.
