A Merry ‘Resilience-filled’ Holiday!
As 2019 draws to a close, here is a reminder that there’s no better time than the holidays to build resilience for overcoming anything that life has to throw at you. It’s time to focus on the most important investment in life… you!
I’d like to wish you and your family a resilience-filled holiday season and a Happy New Year!
The Digital Detox Challenge
For those of us who feel the grip of technology is getting a tad too tight, I offer my Digital Detox Challenge (‘DDC’), where for one day (C’mon! You can do THIS!) you turn off all your screens and take the time to catch your breath and bring things back to center. This is guaranteed to energize, improve focus and boost your resilience.
The first step is simply deciding when you will start your DDC. So, choose a day – and commit! See if you can get significant others or the whole family to join in, as this will make the experience more powerful for everyone.
Once you have circled the date on your calendar, when the day arrives make sure you allow time to reflect on the following three questions as you reflect back on the past year:
- What are you most grateful for? This could have to do with anything in your life that is a source of strength, that brings joy – your health, relationships, freedom, the blue sky above.
- What are you willing to let go? Is there something that is causing you angst that you can do something about – a concern, a worry, a troubled relationship? By deciding to let go of something that holds us back we are able to clear the mental clutter.
- What is your intention for the year ahead? What is the one thing you want to work on, make improvement to or learn and what is the first step you need to take to put it in motion?
Take the Digital Detox Challenge this Holiday Season and take time think of these three things as you look to the year ahead. See if you notice a difference! You may want to make it a permanent part of your routine. I did and I love the results!
