Chances are over the next few days you might be returning to your hometown, seeing family you haven't seen in ages, reconnecting with old friends, or even just getting a chance to take a few deep breaths.
This post is just a reminder to be mindful and stay in the moment over the next few days.
Put your phone down at Thanksgiving dinner.
Tell your parents or your grandparents something you're grateful for that they've done. Something that has taught you a lesson or helped you along the way.
On Thanksgiving, don't feel guilty about eating the pie. Just be grateful for the food on the table.
If you don't get to spend this holiday with friends and family, take some time for yourself. Read a novel or spend the day binge watching your favorite show in your pajamas.
Just do something that will make you happy and relaxed.
Not only should you pause to be in the moment with loved ones, but this break is vital to your business success.
Take a moment to think of what you're doing when you get your best ideas, or finally solve a problem you've been struggling with.
You're usually in the shower, or driving, or out on a hike, right? Something that has removed you from the situation and your normal work environment.
It's the end of 2015, so you've likely been reflecting on what you've accomplished this year and planning your goals for 2016. There are probably a million things you'd like to do.
If you pause and remove yourself from the planning and day-to-day work, you'll return with more clarity for the next year.
So let's all pause for clarity.
