Successfully Managing the Holiday Stress

As a mother, I can’t tell you how many times, Holiday Stress became an accessory to my holiday wardrobe.  Keeping up with everyone’s plays, musicals, class parties, gift purchasing, service projects, cards….well scratch that, I rarely got to the cards.  There were, and are so
many  wonderful occasions to participate in during
this joyous time of the year, and I really wanted to enjoy them all.

I know that keeping an eye on the true focus of the Season, plays a major part of what keeps me grounded.  Scriptures and prayer are always a big part of my day, yet let’s be honest here, we are having a human experience, and it’s not always roses.   Because of my sensitive, intuitive nature, if I am not feeling my own stress, I will usually feel the stress of someone else. So, many of the techniques I teach my clients, I have also used in our own family.

The Secret to Success

The secret to success is in developing habits and routines to help you unplug from the emotional chaos that hits top of the charts during this time of year….the holiday season.

Years ago, John Maxwell said, “If I could come to your house and watch you for 24 hours, I could tell whether or not you are going to be a success or a failure.  You pick the day, but let me watch you from the moment you wake up till the time you go to bed, and just by observing you in one 24 hour period I can tell if you will be a success or failure. The reason I say that is because, the secret of  your future is hidden in your daily routines.

A plan that will help you grow into your goals and dreams.

John Maxwell was also asked earlier in his life, “What is your plan for personal growth?’  He started listing all of his education, all of his degrees, and so on.  The man said, “No, I mean your plan for personal growth?”  At first this confused John, and then he realized he didn’t have a plan. to grow personally.  We all have goals and dreams in our heart, but you have to have a plan that will help you grow into them.

Many individuals grow to a certain level, and then stop their personal growth, which causes them to begin to plateau.  By making a plan for change, your building success for yourself as you progress to move forward.

Here is a List of 5 simple things I practice every day.

  1. Spend time with God, everyday, thinking, meditating
  2. Listening to a motivational, faith-building message.
  3. Read something that is uplifting every day for 20 minutes
  4. Keep your goals and dreams out where you see them every morning, and through out the day.
  5. Exercise

I am convinced that the secret to your success is in your routine.  If you can focus on a routine, you will change your whole life.

Jim Rhon said, “I found with a few reading disciplines, and a few disciplines of mind, and a few disciplines of activity, that when exercised, can begin making all the difference in the world as to where you will arrive.”

He also said, “Success is something you attract by the person you become,  If you want more you must become more.”

We all want our circumstances to change; we want a better salary, we want to have better relationships, a better body,  better opportunities.  The way to have better is to become better.

For myself personally, the more I focus on changing myself, my life becomes better.

Now I have a plan for growth. And I have developed an emergency, support discipline to help me unplug from a situation that begins to set my emotions exploding.  I believe that life is worth living to the fullest, and we are the only one who determines that.
