Week 45’s task of 50 Weeks to a Lighter More Loving You is Hall Pass.
I wonder if schools still use Hall Pass’s…the PERMISSION SLIP one needed from a teacher to go to the bathroom, library, nurse, office or some other place in school. They signified that one had permission to be wondering the halls during class time.
This week your task is to give your self a HALL PASS…or two!
The holiday season is upon us. There is a certain frenetic energy that happens between now and New Year’s Day. Even if one has worked hard at simplifying things, including the holidays, there still seems to be an energy that puts us in GO MODE and STRESS whether due to things to do, places to go, or family dynamics.
Many years ago, when I got married, someone told me to make sure I relaxed and enjoyed the day, to not worry about logistics and things like that. If I didn’t get “present” and totally into the day, it would pass by with great speed and little enjoyment.
That was such great advice and this can be carried right over into this time of year.
What can you give yourself PERMISSION TO DO, your HALL PASS, through this holiday season to be sure you go through it relaxed and present?
- quiet times
- early bed times
- not having to have everything perfect
- gift shopping on-line
- delegate tasks
- say no to some holiday event invitations
- soak in a tub with candles
- enjoy your events without worrying if others are enjoying it
- remember to be grateful
- limit the amount of money spent on gifts
- skip sending Christmas cards
- take a walk
Take time this week to WRITE OUT your HALL PASS(ES) and give yourself PERMISSION to follow them through.
My HALL PASS is that I will not write CHECK IN’s for these last 5 tasks.
Share some of your HALL PASSES in the comments and inspire others.
Cheering You on to a Whole Relaxed and Present Hall Pass Heart,
