Glowing in November
November marks the beginning of the festivities at home and within my Family. There are Birthdays, Family gatherings, Family dinners, lunches, Baby Showers, Births, X’mas tree arrival, family getaways, school breaks, X’mas, New year..uh la la….all the way till January…It is definitely one of the most antecipated time of the year.
A little bit late – but always on time – It’s Nov. 9th in my Calendar – i will post about having a Healthy Holistic Month and help you get prepared to the festivities ahead in case you have a busy agenda like myself.
We want POSITIVE VIBES ONLY!
Instead of ruminating about negative things, try to savour, relive, enjoy and share the positive events of your day!
It is very important to observe our emotions. One common negative emotion is anger. Anger comes in all shapes, sizes and features. When we observe that anger is present and mindfully identify it, it will loose it’s destructive nature.
Only when we are angry and not observing our anger does it become destructive.
Try concentrating on your breathing and follow this:
Breathing in, I know that i am angry. Breathing out, I know i must take care of my anger.
Breathing in, i know that anger is still here. Breathing out, I know that anger is in me and i know that mindfulness is in me also.
Breathing in, I know that i can take care of my anger. Breathing out, i calm my anger.
