After the holidays, we all need time for stress relief.
Starting the New Year off with a routine of taking time for yourself to unwind is the best gift you can give yourself.
Creating a serene space at home is the best part. If you want to try yoga or meditation, make it a project to clear out a space in a room for just that activity. De-clutter the area; keep it simple, perhaps a candle, an iPod player for meditation music, and a small table for incense or jewelry. Keep the floor clean so that it is inviting to sit there or do yoga. Leave the cell phone out of the room while you are meditating, so that there are no distracting sounds. Even choosing an outside area is a great idea, as you get the fresh air, the sounds of the birds, and the peace of being in nature.
