The fact that life is so busy and chaotic these days I find that the best advice I have for anyone is to take a minimum of 10 minutes each day whether indoors or out and just sit quietly. Let the burdens and stresses you carry slide off your shoulders for a moment or two by sitting in a quiet place, closing your eyes and taking slow deep breathes. In doing so, you allow your inner voice to be heard. This may also help you to gain control over how you face the rigors of your day.
Coming to the end of a year and looking towards the new one, I like to take the time to reflect on the year I've journeyed through. Remind myself what I have to be thankful for, revisit the adversities that challenged me to see if I caught the lesson within. And remember in the coming year, that whatever the situation good, bad or indifferent, this to shall pass.
