Have you been letting the everyday stress of your life control you and all that you do? It is very easy to let that happen, especially as we move further into the holiday season. Remember to take time for yourself. To allow yourself to find a bit of solitude so you may recharge your batteries, reconnect with yourself and just plain relax. Whether you spend 5 minutes locked away in the bathroom so no one can reach you or you spend hours on your own communing with nature all that matters is you take the time to focus on yourself. Allowing yourself the to be in solitude creates the opportunity for you to let the stress and the worry to melt away. It allows you to find yourself again, your true self. It is one of the greatest gifts you can receive.
