Anyone else feel like the holidays can’t come soon enough? We feel you! We’ve shared our secret to staying sane in this crazy silly season in today’s blog. You’re welcome!
It’s that time of the year where days are starting to get blurry – you’re running around one festivity after another, there are Christmas parties scheduled on the same day at the same time and you’re trying to figure out how to be at both, you still haven’t done your gift shopping, you’re finishing up at work for the year so things are busier than usual, and you’re starting to feel blah from all the rich, indulgent food you’ve been consuming. In short, things are hectic and party season is just beginning.
Here’s our secret to staying sane this season and making sure that “the most wonderful time of the year” is exactly that – wonderful! Our secret is so simple yet we are all guilty of not doing this even though we know it’s important.
The secret is to take time out for yourself daily.
Schedule it in your diary, block your calendar if you have to or even set an alarm to remind yourself and follow through with it.
When we’re busy looking after everything and everyone else, hosting parties and guests and families coming to visit, the first thing to go is usually ‘me’ time. But it’s important not to compromise this. If you don’t look after yourself then who will? It doesn’t matter if it’s only five minutes out of your day to do your skincare routine, or enjoying a cup of tea in bed before getting up to start your day. What matters is that you take the time to do something that makes you happy.
And when you think about it, isn’t this season really about being merry and celebrating joy in our lives? Being present and spending time with the people we love? At the end of the day, the best gift you can give is you. The best version of you – happy and healthy, present in the moment, and making new memories.
It’s the season of giving so don’t forget to give yourself some love too. Our giftcards are perfect as a present for the people you love – including yourself! Shop with us here
