For many people though, Christmas comes with challenges of its own. Christmas can be down right stressful and at times isolating.

MINDFULNESS SKILLS FOR MANAGING THE CONCERNS AND COMPLEXITIES THAT COME WITH CHRISTMAS
Hacking the breath
When it comes to real-time stress management, the benefits of hacking the breath, cannot be overstated. The power of the breath is that it is something that you take with you everywhere you go, and can harnessed in every situation you are in, to radically alter the body’s fight and flight response.
Acknowledge your feelings
There is no escaping the occurrence of anxiety producing circumstances in our lives. Allowing and acknowledging the range of your emotions – including anxiety, anger and disappointment can actually reduce the disorienting impacts of your difficult emotions.
Treat yourself as a friend
Your thoughts take place as a kind of inner-conversation. The quality of your inner conversation massively impacts your resilience across your career. Supportive self-talk is the key to staying well even in the midst of set-backs and stressful situations.
Observe, name and nurture
Learning to observe our thoughts and feelings as mental events is a very important part of our toolkit. This can help us feel more in control when anxiety strikes. If we can describe our feelings this also and also the content of what we are thinking, this can help us feel calmer and more emotionally safe.
