Try this relaxation meditation together before bed or simply when the “dial” of energy needs to be turned down during the holidays!
Let's practice some Holiday Card Breathing together today!
Have you received Christmas or Holiday Greeting Cards where you live this year? We hope so! Cards are so fun to give and to get!
Pick out your favorite holiday card, perhaps your sister or brother picks a different one or it is OK to share the same one too!
Spend a few moments looking at the card and thinking about the person who sent it to you.
Now hold the card edges with your fingers and thumbs and as you open the card up wide take in your first deep breath....
Then as you close the card breathe all of that air out - here's an added challenge... try your best to do it through your nose with your mouth closed...
Open the card again and take in another deep breath -all the way down until it fills your belly! Go ahead and close the card and let that breath out :)
Continue to open and close the card as slowly as you can... breathing in as you open and out as you close... all the time thinking about the person who sent you the card with love and kindness.
Perhaps you add the challenge to say the words " I am so excited" as you breath in and "I can be calm and restful" as you breathe out...
The holidays are so exciting, and when we use our breath we can feel our body calm and find a moment of rest. When we are calm and restful we can fully enjoy all of the excitement together!
Perhaps now, you take a quiet relaxing moment with your someone special to tell them just how special they are to you….
P.S. Remember you can do this breathing with your favorite card or even with your favorite book after the holiday cards have been put away!
Truly wishing you a special holiday,
