It’s all in the technique…

Navigate your way smartly around these common pitfalls, just lying in wait to trip us up and make us feel mopey, not merry

1 AVOID THE TRAP OF OVERINDULGENCE.

The post-Christmas bloat is not an empowering feeling. Coach Pete Cohen says a great tool to avoid it is to stay accountable by sharing your plan to keep a healthy balance. ‘More often than not, you’ll find that other people say, “Great, me too.”‘ Cohen and Tamara Russell, director of the Mindfulness Centre of Excellence, advise us to think about our intentions. Russell prompts us to ask ourselves, ‘How do you want to be, in relation to food and drink, this year?’ She shares a practical tool for awareness: ‘Mindful movement, as we reach for another helping or a top-up, is a great way to practise being more aware of our consumption.’ Mi365.me

About Psychologies

This month we’re exploring how to truly have a happy Christmas. If you don’t have any religious beliefs, the holidays can be rather become a meaningless glut of overconsumption and commercialism, but this issue will help you explore how to create a different experience for you, your friends and family this year. And often it’s about kindness. Our interview with June Sapong explores how we can use kindness in our everyday lives to make the world a better place. One of our own relays her experience of finding the bravery and courage to start dating again. When a relationship goes sour, it’s normal to lick your wounds for a bit but how do we begin to heal and have the courage to be vulnerable and get back out there again? Ellen Tout takes us on that journey. Natalie Hourihan explores ‘creativism’ with author and entrepreneur Orna Ross and shows us how to connect with our ‘creative intelligence’ so we can design a life that works for us on our terms. The good news we all have access to this intelligence, we just need to know how to harness it!
