Remember that relaxation doesn’t have to be a waste of time. Learn about many, different ways to relax and use your free time wisely. Who says that you cannot be productive, motivated or effective during a day off? We can always learn new things, practice and develop our skills even or especially during the holidays.
Life is unpredictable. Learn to embrace chaos, accept what you cannot control and learn to live in the present moment. Be mindful and learn to live a conscious life. Because, observing and accepting strong, unpleasant emotions and the complexity of a difficult situation is the only way to be able to get through this.
