Our lives – especially during the holidays – tend to be budy, chaotic, and full of distractions. The most important thing about each activity is not the activity itself, but
an openness to being fully present to who you are, the people and circumstances around you, and what God might be up to. More than anything, these practices are
intended to help us slow down, breathe, and pay attention.
Three important clarifications:
1: No single activity is carved in stone. If you are
unable to do an activity, think of an alternative. For
example, if you are not able to go on a long walk,
go to a mall or shopping center and prayerfully
observe people as they do their shopping. If
you are sight-impaired, go outside or to a public
place to sit and listen. Be creative. Be flexible.
There is no single right or wrong activity. Again,
the invitation is to slow down, breathe, and pay
attention. If there is something not on this calendar
that helps you do that, go for it!
2: Feel free to move, exchange, or repeat the
activities. If there are days that work better for
certain activities, make the necessary adjustments.
There is no point cramming an activity into your
day if there is a more natural day to give it a try.
Also, just as you are invited to practice 10-minutes
of silence repeatedly throughout the break, feel
free to repeat an activity that you find meaningful.
3: Give yourself permission to work on just one
activity over the break. Perhaps you want to
commit to 10-minutes of silence every day during
the break. Or maybe you want to write down
three things for which you are grateful every
day. Perhaps you want to be extra generous to
baristas and wait staff over the break. Whatever it
might be, if there is an activity that is particularly
intriguing, challenging, or inspiring, perhaps it
would be good to commit to that. Size 11
