Feeling Crazed? Here Are 5 Tips To Stay Mindful During The Holidays
It can be hard to be mindful during the holidays, with all the travel, stress, and a longer than normal to-do list. Not to mention, we’re all thrown out of our normal routines and might struggle to create structure in our days. But despite it being challenging, it’s important to slow down and savor the moment—the holidays will be over before you know it!
