Be. Here. (with me) Now. A study by the Journal of Social and Personal Relationships found that individuals (at least in the U.S.A.) experience love more significantly from small gestures, acts of kindness, and positive physical contact than they do from big gestures, like receiving expensive gifts. Unfortunately during the holiday season relationships can end up feeling more conflicted than loving and cause more anxiety than peace. This is an especially important time to practice self-care, through activities such as physical exercise, mindfulness meditation, and being present for a supportive and loving other.
