This is only the second time in my life that I haven’t spent Christmas Day with my Mum and Dad. So, it’s gonna be a quiet one for Chris, me and Foxy as we celebrate in Glasgow and Gwen & Andy are at home in Northern Ireland.

I thought this meant it would be a stress-free time for me. How wrong was I?? Instead, I’ve been inundated with end of year reviews, new year programme plans and college course work.

For those, like me, who aren’t able to escape the usual Christmas rush please try to take 5 minutes out of your day and have a little Christmas relaxation. Maybe you could try this relaxation that I’ve recorded for you. (Click below to check it out. It should open in a new window).

Winter Solstice Meditation

And, in order to lessen your stress, there will be a little holiday from your Weekly Stretch Note and you will hear from me again on Friday 10th January. Until then, have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
