Happy Holidays Yogis!!!! from Love Yoga Love in Byron!
This is the time of year that many of us look forward to reconnecting with family and friends and spending lots of time together with them to celebrate the season.
Although this can be a happy and loving time of year it can also be one where we are more emotionally charged and sensitive than usual. This can cause us to hold high and perhaps unreasonable expectations of our loved ones. It is important during this time to remember that we are all human and are all experiencing many of the same stresses, hopes and fears. Try to bring with you a sense of gratitude and acceptance. Try to be ‘present’ with your loved ones, really truly listen to what they are really saying and look into their eyes. One of the greatest gifts you can give is that of really hearing someone, of giving them your full attention. You would be surprised how rare a gift that can be!
