Maybe it’s family dinner, a function with friends or an outing with people that you haven't seen in ages.
There are going to be gatherings this holiday season, and you're going to find yourself in conversation with people that have slightly different opinions than you.
Don't go running for the door just yet...
Our differences are what make us special, and human. If we can train ourselves to be able to relax in the face of conflict, we can more deeply experience family, friendship and our humanity.
Here's how it may go...
Someone has a thought or opinion, and it’s really gets you. You feel that knot in your stomach, or that rising heat of fire being stoked by disagreement.
We are going to take minute, pause and take a deep breath in and let it all out and check in with our breathe.
Are we breathing shallow, and high into our chest? Is the breathe flowing deeply into the belly?
Short and shallow breathing, or outright holding our breath with kick in our sympathetic nervous system - fight or flight mode. We are going to get ready for battle and drum up a physical response in our body.
We can stop this by pausing, breathing deeply into our belly and kicking in our PARAsympathetic nervous system to bring us into a relaxed mind + body space.
Find yourself space or a corner and try some BOX breathing along with Sam Lightwork this Holiday Season.

The term Feng Shui comes from the Chinese culture, where Feng refers to wind and Shui to water. Together, wind and water are responsible for bringing health.
Feng shui dictates using the placement of things in homes and spaces to bring good fortune.
And that’s also why everything from our homes to offices, gardens, and even our souls are influenced by feng shui.
Can Tibetan bowls promote good feng shui? Where to keep your singing bowls in the house for this?

Some say it quickly relaxes their muscles, and others that it calms mind chatter. (if you've had special or different experiences, we'd love to hear from you. Email us at email@example.com)
Singing bowls can help us find serenity, much like the mind switches off the distractions, and my body just follows the cue.
Singing bowls and other de-stressing techniques work by affecting our parasympathetic nervous system. It teaches our brain to deal with stress using healing sound vibrations while keeping us in a state of balance or homeostasis.
