Good morning! It’s the beginning of a holiday week for many, whether you celebrate the holidays in question or not. Even if the next two weeks are nothing more than a slower pace at work or a break from classes for you, there is still an opportunity to pause and appreciate the things that make you happy. If you are using this time to finalize round 2 applications or other end of year projects, do so mindfully, paying close attention to small details, and also making way for moments of reflection and even some occasional rest. They will make your end results stronger, I promise! I’ll be back with a few reminders to stay mindful during this time, but for now, have a (mindfully) merry week!
