The holiday season is in full swing, which means lots of stress.
You’re broke. You don’t want to spend too much. How will you pick the perfect gift? How do you make your in-laws, your significant other, kids, friends all happy with their incessant demands? How are you going to find time to decorate, shop, cook, work, and plaster a smile on 24/7?
Breathe. Take a moment or 20 to yourself. Everyday if needed.
Do something for yourself. Have a brownie. Go to the gym. Or don’t go to the gym. Play in the snow or sand. Take a bubble bath. Have a glass of wine. Or hot chocolate. Whatever you like.
Love yourself. It’s the gift that keeps on giving, because what you’re willing to do for yourself is really what you can do for others. You can only truly give to others when you aren’t expecting the world of them as well.
I wish you all peace and joy not only for this month, but for many months to follow. Have a safe and happy holiday season.
