Present-wrapping, potato-peeling, dishwashing, in-law entertaining, turkey-basting, charade-playing, pudding-preparing, wine-mulling… Christmas can be hectic.
For some, this festive frenzy adds to the charm, but there is often little time to pause and absorb the moments that make the day special.
This year, why not make it a mindful Christmas? Allow yourself a short period of solitude and silence at the start of the day, practise mindful eating and escape the cabin fever with a winter walk.
