Ego Puppy’s Tips to a Stress Free Holiday Season

egopuppy Ego Puppy’s Tips to a Stress Free Holiday Season

Happy Holidays!

Do those words cause you a bit of stress?

For some, the holidays bring on the extra pressure of gift giving and far too many activities. For others, the holidays bring feelings of loneliness and depression.

For you it could be the uncomfortable conversations with people you rarely see or maybe you’re just tired of the same old jokes, jabs and drama.

Whatever it is that causes you stress during the holidays, rest assured that lots of others feel the same way.

Take a breath. It’s ok!

Let’s start this holiday season off on the right foot. Instead of dreading what’s to come, enjoy the beauty of the season feeling relaxed and happy.

Here are 3 things you can do to get started:

Get to know your Ego Puppy

Imagine being the proud owner of a new puppy. It comes to you with all the needs of a new baby. It needs constant love, affection, attention and nourishment to reach its full potential.

And just like a new baby puppy, sometimes little Ego Puppy just doesn’t behave. He runs amok, destroying your possessions and piddles all over the floor!

Now imagine this little Ego Puppy is your own ego mind, running amok and causing problems for everyone.

And here’s something else to consider, everyone else in your family got a member of Ego Puppy’s litter at the same time.

Let’s get started.

This year, armed with my ever-growing knowledge of Ayurveda, I am facing the holidays with a new sense of understanding, freedom, peace, and CALM. Usually, as soon as Halloween is over, I’m filled with panic and dread.

Ayurvedic Strategies for Healthy Holiday Eating

Ayurvedic Strategies for Healthy Holiday Eating

‘Tis the season to be snacking! From Thanksgiving (or even Halloween) through Valentine’s Day, the holidays present an extended string of festive gatherings that center around food and drinks. While living it up with friends, family, and colleagues can be fun, it can also be a bit stressful—especially if travel, hectic schedules, extra spending, and rich, sugary foods are on the menu.

“When there’s stress involved, our choices can become more reactive, rather than coming from a grounded place and connected to the self,” says Sankari Wegman, an Ayurvedic consultant at The Raj who also teaches Ayurvedic cooking classes. Moreover, Wegman tells us, it’s particularly easy to feel stressed during Vata season, which falls in autumn. “Vata by nature is light and airy, and it gets thrown out of balance when there’s any kind of irregularity.”

Below, Wegman offers ten easy Ayurvedic lifestyle and diet tips to help combat holiday stress—whether you’re the host, the chef, or dining solo this season.
