Creating rituals in our lives helps to perpetuate feelings of comfort and joy.
Rituals are not only celebrations and rites of passage but they can also help us connect with family and friends. When shared and passed down from year to year, they bring a sense of familiarity to various experiences, including holidays.
Identifying and creating rituals we personally identify with, helps reduce stress in challenging situations. By shifting our focus from the unknown to the familiar, we create peace and calm.
This holiday season identify something new that starts with you and becomes a ritual. Or perhaps identify a tradition you want to adopt or pass down.
Happy + healthy holidays!
