The holiday season, with all the joys of #familytime, parties and indulgence, can leave you running on empty in more ways than one.
Luckily, we know another Holiday who's expertise in mediation can help you keep your zen-meister status, no matter how stressy your festive season becomes!
Who Is Holiday Phillips?
Holiday is a fresh new voice in the meditation world, calling the style she teaches Soulfulness. She blends the traditional practise of mindfulness with the more heart led practises of self compassion and gratitude.
A former chronic stress head with a very loud inner critic, Holiday finally decided that enough was enough and tried her first mindfulness class. This changed everything and led to three years intensively studying everything she could about meditation and travelling around the world to experience different styles. She eventually decided to share all of these amazing learnings, becoming a meditation teacher.
Through meditation she wants to help as many people as possible, connect to the deep place of freedom that exists when you learn to accept yourself just as you are.
Holiday's Top 3 Tips To Keep Meditating
Tip 1 - Start Small, Stay Small
5 mins of meditation a day is perfect if you meditate consistently. Work out what you can do each day (wether its 3-5 mins) and do that. The key is consistency.
Tip 2 - Journal
It’s easy for people to stop mediating if they can’t visually see the impact of their mediation work. But if you journal you can.
If you meditate for a specific reason like handling stress or negative thinking, write about that and after a few weeks or months you’ll be able to read back and see how things are changing for you.
Imagine looking back at your journal and seeing that this is what I did back then in stressful situations - compared to now, this is what I do. Journaling is really affirming and helpful and keeps you going with your mediation practice.
The Balanced Wellbeing & Lifestyle Journal gives you 365 daily opportunities to journal your thoughts, write about your meditation practice, process your day and get creative with your goals.

Gift it to yourself or to those you love and follow Holiday’s advice - supplement your meditation practice with the Balanced Lifestyle & Wellbeing Journal to really see the benefits.
Tip 3 - Use the things you learn in mediation in your life
We can practice things in mediation like self compassion and dealing with stress that you can then carry on into your real life.
So, if you do a self compassion mediation in the morning, do a few mini self compassion breaks during the day. Or if you are working on breathing mediation for stress, next time you feel stressed, take 3 deep breaths.
That's where the benefits of mediation will really come to life.
