This holiday season, lets settle down and think about what the season really means to us. For some it can be about presents but for others it could be just a simple blessing. Mercy Family Medical Centers have created a wonderful website for you to write out those blessing you wish to bestow.
Dr. Doug Walker, a psychologist from the New Orleans center says that the very act of settling down and journaling your thoughts can lead to less stress, which is very high around Christmas.
Personally I know i am stressed. There was a surprise wedding thrown into holiday plans along with my semester ending. Instead of spending one more day being stressed I took Mercy’s advice and turned it into a blessing. I went to Mercy’s Our Blessings Count site and I typed out a blessing for my sister in law and her soon to be husband, and you know something? I FEEL BETTER.
I think we should all take the advice from Mercy and just sit down for a minute during this crazy holiday season and think about the people, places and things that we feel blessed to have in our lives!
Mercy recognizes the stress we put on ourselves and our families over the holidays. They want to remind us that ‘Our greatest blessing is to see others blessed.’ One way we can do this is to pause, list our blessings, and share them with others. Let’s count our blessings together at www.ourblessingscount.com.
