The holidays are a magical time of year, filled with happy family gatherings, shopping and holiday cheer! It’s a time for connecting with loved ones, reflecting on the year, and a time for giving. However, it can also be a time of stress, over-indulgence and increased expenses.
As women, we often prioritize the needs of others over our own. We give of our time, energy, and even our money. This can leave us exhausted and drained at a time of year that is meant for celebration and merriment. With all that giving, there’s often someone overlooked: YOU!
You deserve a happy and healthy holiday season. You are worthy of love, kindness and respect, so why not give yourself some of that!
Here are 2 gifts to give to yourself this holiday season…
The Gift of Time
Take some time out for yourself! Through the hustle and bustle of the season, it’s easy to forget to stop and focus on ourselves. Schedule some time to spend with yourself doing something you love. It could be a walk in the park, a relaxing bubble bath, gardening or scrapbooking. Commit some time for yourself to unwind and focus on some self-love!
The Gift of, well, Gifts!
It’s the holidays! Why not treat yourself to an actual, physical gift? It doesn’t have to be something overly expensive or opulent, but there’s nothing wrong with treating yourself! After all, self-care is not an expense, it’s an investment.
When you say yes to others, make sure you’re not saying no to yourself. Throw kindness around like confetti, and make sure you shower yourself too! This holiday season, don’t forget to give yourself some love!
