Tis` the season for BUSY. The hustle and bustle of the holidays can be so draining.
I wanted to take this moment and remind you to indulge and enjoy some self-care. It is SO important. It is so important all times of the year, but definitely it can be hard to fit in during the holiday season.
Why does self-care become so hard to fit in?
With it being so crucial for us then why is it not always so easy to fit in? Time becomes harder to come by as we are going from Christmas party to Christmas party, and other holiday events.
By the time we get home, often that was so mentally draining that we don`t have anything left in us.
Not to mention that the financial burden the holidays can bring can be so stressful and deteriorating to our mental health.
Self-Care is the deliberate act of taking care of ourselves. This can be to take care of ourselves mentally, physically, or spiritually. Though it sounds so simple, it is really so hard.
How can we fit self-care in?
If you are anything like me, you need to schedule it. I know that sounds so weird, but yes, I literally mark things in my agenda/planner, so I can make sure that I do it.
Sometimes I become so busy that I even have to schedule in to wash my hair.
And, I`m not busy with things I don`t enjoy. I`m busy blogging and creating a life I love, so it`s so often that I lose track of time.
Try to schedule a short amount of time each day dedicated to practise self-care.
- Drinking tea
- Have a bubble bath
- Light some candles
- Go for a walk
- Spend time in nature
- Do something creative
- You can use some essential oils (which you can read about over here — HERE).
Self-Care is worth investing time into.
Whatever the amount of time is, it really is worth it. It may take some getting used to, but with mindfulness and determination you can get it.
