Take Time for Yourself This Holiday Season
The holidays are supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year, right? Sadly, sometimes it seems more like the most overwhelming time of the year. You’ve got trees to decorate, lights to hang up, bake sales to bake for, holiday parties to get ready for, kids’ pageants to attend, neighbors to entertain, and family to feed. The list goes on. But what on that list includes taking care of yourself?
As much as ever, now is the time to pause and take a moment for yourself. You bend over backwards to get the reports done for your boss, and you somehow manage to have dinner on the table and lunch packed for the kids? You’re a superhero. You deserve to treat yourself this holiday season.
These four simple #TreatYourself moments will have you jolly and joyous this holiday season—no matter how hectic it gets!
1. Give Youtube Yoga a Try
Even if you only have five or ten minutes to spare at the beginning or end of the day, you can still fit in a fabulous yoga session, guaranteed to refresh your mind and reinvigorate your body.
Whenever you have an extra few minutes, instead of sneaking that spoonful of cookie dough from the fridge (we won’t tell!), just pull up Youtube and type in the kind of yoga you’re looking for. There’s something for everyone, from 5-minute beginners’ sessions to hour-long intense workouts.
2. Indulge in a Haircut and Color Treatment
Nothing says relaxation and self-care quite like indulging in a new haircut and color treatment.
So, this holiday season, make some time for yourself by heading over to your local Fantastic Sams Cut and Color salon and getting a new ‘do for all those holiday parties you’ll be attending.
Even if you don’t have time to get the full salon treatment, you can always get a shampoo and blow-out to make you feel like a movie star in no time at all.
The best part is: because Fantastic Sams is a “no-appointment-necessary” salon, you don’t have to plan ahead or pencil anything in. Just stop by whenever it’s convenient for you!
3. Read that Book You’ve Been Meaning to Read Forever
You know the paperback that’s been sitting on your nightstand for months? It’s calling your name. So, take a break from your insane schedule for a couple of hours and get immersed in a whole new world.
If you don’t have time to read while you’re at home, try popping in a book-on-tape (they’re pretty much all downloadable now) during your commute to and from work. Before you know it, you’ll be the most well-read person in your office!
4. Create a Spa at Home
In between making dinner and folding the laundry, you’ve got a solid thirty minutes to spare. It’s a rare and blissful moment. Take advantage of it by creating a spa at home!
The ultimate in self-care? Slathering a moisturizing mud mask on your face, coating your hair with a deep conditioning masque, pouring a generous glass of wine, and turning on this week’s episode of your favorite medical drama; it’s truly heaven.
Light a relaxing candle or two and breathe a contented sigh as your husband wrangles the kids into bed. You earned this moment!
Few things are more important than making time to take care of yourself—regardless of whether or not it’s the holiday season. So, remember to #TreatYourself and Always Be Fantastic!
