The Heart of Christmas

christmas_nights-1920x1200“He who has no Christmas in his heart will never find Christmas under a tree” -Charlotte Carpenter

The 25th day of the month of December has been marked as a day in which Christians all over the world celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. Although the celebration has its origin from Christianity, it is a season that is generally celebrated by all. This is because it is usually celebrated at a season that also marks the end of the year. Christmas is not just about the weather or the many activities that accompanies it. What makes Christmas special is what we make of it.

“It’s Christmas in the HEART that puts Christmas in the AIR”- W.T Ellis

These days, the main purpose of Christmas has been ignored by so many. People get easily carried away by the outings, shopping, and other activities that come with the season and neglect what the season actually stands for.

What is the heart of Christmas?

It is the Heart of LOVE

The Christmas season is a time to show love to all those around you. You might say…

Must I wait till Christmas to show love?” The answer is NO!

The deepest desire of every individual is to be loved and love is a virtue which every individual should carry around on a daily basis. In this Christmas season, love should be seen everywhere around you. Show love to everyone and everything around you to the point that even the blind will see the love that your presence radiates.

It is the Heart of SACRIFICEslide28

The heart of Christmas is the heart of sacrifice. It is the heart that looks out for the next person even when it is not convenient. As you celebrate this Christmas, endeavor to give to someone. You can give your time, money, gifts, show kindness or you can devise other creative ways to express love to others.

 

It is the Heart of GRATITUDE

Gratitude-Season-300x199

Christmas should be a time when we show gratitude to God for the things we have and everything we have achieved over the year. It is not a time to count losses or worry about what we don’t have. Not expressing gratitude this season would be out of place as there is a lot to be thankful for. If you can’t think of anything to be thankful for, then be grateful that you are alive.

Do not forget!

A grateful heart is a happy heart

This is the heart of Christmas!

Making the most of the holiday

happy holidaysThe holidays are here already and for some of us, it is a passport to work and more work. Sometimes it may be difficult to take time out to rest especially if one is a workaholic. This can be dangerous to one’s health and  relationships. Having time for self and others is an important part of life and should be set as top priority on our to do list. However, it is common place to see many work round the clock, in the name of making more money. It is true that there is so much to do, but someone once said that the best time to relax is when you feel you have no time for it. It is therefore paramount that you rest and create time to relax, so as to prevent the harmful effects of stress as we saw in our last series.

The year 2014 brought with it a number of good and bad times, and as the year slowly inches to an end, it would be beneficial to hibernate for some days.  Here are 10 ways  you can explore making the most of the holiday season:

1. Spend time with family

Interpersonal interaction has a therapeutic effect on our emotional health especially when with loved ones. It brings a  sense of calm, peace and love. You feel at home and secure when with your family.

2. Go to the beach

A trip to a natural and serene environment can do your body and mind a lot of good. Either with loved ones or by yourself, you can ease a lot of stress by enjoying the cool air at the beach.Relax

3. Visit a spa.

Why not give yourself a treat to a spa this season.  You may  go out to one or you can create one yourself at home.  Get a massage which can help reduce, stress, headaches, pain and anxiety.

4. Practice relaxation techniques.

Breath in. Breath out.

This simple mantra has tremendous benefits. Relaxation technique works by counteracting the effects of a stress response. While stress activates the sympathetic nervous system in a fight or flight response, relaxation activates the parasympathetic nervous system and brings the body back to normal.

5. Surprise yourself

Surprise? While it may seem impossible to surprise oneself, you can decide to get yourself a gift. For all the hard work during the year, you sure deserve that one thing you really desire. Don’t wait for anyone to get it for you. Show yourself some love.

6. Do something you are passionate about.

This holiday, engage in an activity that you have always wanted to do however productive. This can be singing, writing, participating in a sport, traveling, learning to knit, play an instrument, etc.

7. Keep a positive attitude, be happy!.

Laughter they say is the best medicine. Having a positive outlook to life is crucial in combating stress. When you are optimistic, then it is not likely that the slightest obstacle will dampen your day. Always keep a cheery smile on your face.

8. Exercise

When stress weakens you, exercise invigorates and energizes you. It improves your concentration level, makes you alert enough to perform the day’s activities and what’s more, it refreshes you. Consider doing it regularly for at least 10 minutes each day this holiday.

9. Get enough sleep.

This holiday, you would do well to ensure you get adequate sleep for at least 7 to 9 hours. Lack of sleep has been linked to hypertension, increased production of stress hormones.

10. Plan ahead.2015
