Be Present With Your Family and Loved Ones

[Originally posted December 23, 2019]

BE PRESENT with your family and loved ones.  Not just this holiday season, but as a daily practice.  Christmas is such a wonderful time of year–for many of us. For some, it is a reminder of the loved ones they’ve lost or from whom they are separated.  Sadly, this Christmas season will be tough for a lot of people I know.  Their stories serve as reminders to me on how precious life truly is and how it should never be taken for granted.

Use the magic of this holiday season to give family and friends an extra tight hug and words of cheer.  Be PRESENT with them, spending quality time, void of iphones.   I speak for myself — it is easy to be distracted, busy, not giving the time that I should be giving to my family.  But, those times when my family and I slow down, TALK, and show our love and affection–those times are priceless and truly are the best gifts ever.

[Every Monday, a new ‘habit’ will be posted as part of my 52 Weeks of Healthy Habits for Bright Light Living series. These ‘Healthy Habits’ encompass habits for the mind, body, spirit, and one’s perspective of lifein order to LIVE BRIGHT.

You may wish to implement the habits each week (if so, I encourage you to download the

Healthy Habits Assessment form).


Or, the week’s habit can simply serve as a journal prompt or something to ponder.  It’s up to you. I do hope you will check in each week.]
