Slowing Down Over the Holiday Season
Between buying gifts, hosting parties, trying not to break your healthy habits (or the bank), and attending family gatherings, the holidays can feel like the most stressful time of the year. That’s why it’s super important to make time for self-care and self-love. Don't worry about starting a new routine or practice - save that for the New Year! Rather than putting that pressure on yourself to do what you think you 'should' be doing, ask yourself what makes you feel relaxed and revived instead. Allow yourself to slow down. Give yourself and others the gift of presence this year. Remember, when you take care of yourself first, you're better able to show up for others and remain grounded during those stressful situations. Go back to the basics! Here are some simple self-care practices that are easy to do, even on the busiest of days.
