find the support you need

Press the Pause button before the “season” begins –  using the pause button may be a  important skill to develop, especially before the “season” begins – should I say it? I probably don’t need to say but in the spirit of being clear “holidays”, which for many of us can be a little bittersweet.  Here are a few ideas – suggestions – thoughts, that you can use or add your own to press the pause button or unplug.

  1. blue-308748_960_720limit how much news your watch, read or listen – also limit your time on social outlets
  2. turn off all sound – meaning books on tape, radio, pandora etc, try it for 5, 10 minutes or all day
  3. sit on the floor
  4. follow your breath – stop – inhale and exhale
  5. find a window with a view nature and just look
  6. practice yoga for  for 5, 10 minutes or take a class

This list could go one. I would encourage you to find ways that might prompt you to pause.
