Millions of people around the world suffer from some form of insomnia, including problems falling asleep, staying asleep, and getting enough restful sleep. Beyond biological disorders such as sleep apnea and restless leg syndrome, the main reason is an active mind – we lie in bed ruminating about something that happened in the past, or worrying about something in the future.

The holiday season is often a swirl of nonstop activity that can, if you let it, sweep you into a state of imbalance that leaves you feeling exhausted and susceptible to seasonal colds and flu. If you want to truly enjoy this special time of year, the best gift you can give yourself and your family is caring for yourself. Here are a few ways to nourish your mind-body balance this month—and throughout the coming year.
1.) Do one thing at a time. Rather than cooking with a phone in one hand and the TV blaring in the background, give yourself the gift of focused attention. Let yourself experience the aromas, textures, colors, tastes, and sensory pleasures of preparing and eating your special holiday meals.
