Christmas is right around the corner! Whether you celebrate Christmas or another holiday, this guided meditation will help you to tune out the stressors of the holiday season and tune into what makes it special and meaningful for you. So, take a few minutes out of the busyness of the day to refocus on what really matters to you. Remember, a few minutes of down time now, will make you more energized and productive later. So find a comfortable place to sit down and close your eyes…Merry Christmas!



About Sofia Reddy

I’m a busy Mom, wife, social worker and teacher. As a mental health therapist, I have worked with clients to help them manage their recovery with mindful stress management and self-care. To manage my own stress, I practice mindfulness and meditation and am passionate about teaching it to others. I provide self-care workshops and presentations on strategies to prevent burnout amongst working professionals trying to balance multiple roles and responsibilities.

I’m also a volunteer meditation instructor with New Leaf Meditation Project, a community dedicated to helping beginners learn about meditation and wellness for free.

As caregivers, perhaps we’ve learned that we need to put others’ needs ahead of our own, but that is a quick path to burnout. It is also important that we make time to take care of ourselves.

When I’m not working or blogging, I enjoy exploring new hiking trails and going on day trips with my 2 rambunctious children and awesome hubby. For self-care I meditate, journal, read, and practice yoga.

I would love to hear from you! Join our community on Facebook @Sofiasanctuary
