This time of year is so fulfilling with holidays, family gatherings, etc. Yet, sometimes it can be downright exhausting. The hustle and bustle of our day to day lives, in addition to holiday prep and shopping, can be so tiring. You deserve to take some time for yourself to relax and recharge - you need a self-care day!
Okay, maybe you don’t have time to devote an entire day to rest and regain your energy - that’s okay. The smallest things and shortest time windows can work to let you soak up some self care. One super easy thing you can do to relax is to take a long, warm bubble bath. Light a candle, play your favorite playlist and soak up some much needed relaxation.
Another thing you can do is take some time to do a face mask, paint your nails and/or self tan. These things can be immediate mood-boosters and can take your confidence up a notch when you are feeling run down.
You can also just take some time to do nothing. That’s right - nothing. Get home, throw on your comfiest ‘fit and turn on a show to binge or read a book. Taking time to breathe, not deal with responsibilities and just escape is another form of self care. Step back from life’s demands for a couple of hours or even just 30 minutes and you will feel refreshed and ready to take on the rest of the week! Keep your head up, girlfriend. You got this, take care of yourself!
