The holidays can be a hectic time. Full of expectations, juggling daily life, holiday parties, and all the things that come with this season. This is said to be one of the most stressful times of the year…and yet it is also the happiest time of the year.
How can you juggle everything, find your balance and spread holiday cheer?
Take time for YOU!
We cannot take care of others, unless we are taking care of ourselves.
You cannot serve from an empty cup.
Take 20 minutes per day just for you. I’m not talking about working out, power yoga or answering emails with a glass of wine.
Find 20 minutes in your day for you. Our workouts and workaholic lifestyle has become a daily part of our life. At some point, we need time to unwind and relax.
When are you the most relaxed?
What are you doing? What does it smell like? What is the lighting like?
Find time to create these moments everyday.
Perhaps, you enjoy reading with soothing lighting and a vanilla candle. Perfect!
Or you enjoy the beach, sitting there as the sunrises, smelling the salty air. Great!
Or perhaps you enjoy sitting by the fire and just breathing, the smell of the wood burning and the feeling of your stress melting away. Wonderful!
Think about what relaxes you. Choose to make yourself a priority this holiday season.
