Slow down to the PACE of the festive season

Christmas and New Year is just around the corner.  Although this is the time of year where we reunite with family and friends and recharge our battery for the new year, sometimes it can also feel quite stressful and overwhelmed with all the things going on (especially if you happen to be in any of the major supermarkets in the running up to the Christmas). 

Today I am going to share with you my top topics for a less stressful and more joyful holiday season. Click and play the short video below:

So in summary:

Pause: Slow down and take a pause to review your “to do” list or calendar. Can you cut down a few items that is not necessary and leave some space for yourself?

Appreciate: Being grateful for what you already have takes away the stress of having to get every detail correct and perfect.

Connect: Sometimes we need to disconnect (e.g from blackberries, iphones or social medias) to truly connect with those around you. Being present is the best gift you can give.

Enjoy: Expand your capacity to experience, enjoy and savour the moments as it happens, whether it is enjoying a glass of champagne with friends, or looking forward to your kids’ expression when opening the gift box.

I hope you find your own PACE during this holiday season. Rather than rushing around worrying that you are going to miss something, why not slow down to the pace of life so that life can catch up with you?

Wishing you and yours a wonderful festive season and an amazing new year full of love, joy and peace!

  • Hi Jessie. That’s a fantastic video-blog. The content is resonant and rich. However, your silky voice and friendly facial expressions give it a pleasant and sincere tone that let the message sink in, infuse and inspire. I also browsed your other posts and liked them all. It’s obvious that you deeply believe in your messages. I admire your passion and would like to invite you to write (occasionally) for Positive Psychology Program. This would allow more people to hear your message and help them become, as you put it, “their best self”. I wish you all the best, for you and your family in 2015.

    • Hi Reza. Really glad you enjoyed it! Thank you for your kind words and encouragement. I’d be very happy to contribute to the Positive Psychology Programme if my message can inspire the community. We can discuss more when we meet the week after. Best wishes to you and your family for the new year! Jessie
