You know what they say?
Sometimes the little things can end up being the most special – especially around the holidays.
It’s common to feel like you have to get everyone the perfect gifts, prepare the perfect food and overall have a perfect day.
A holiday or any day really does not have to be perfect in order to be special.
You do not need to host or attend events if you don’t want to. Be honest with yourself and your loved ones on what makes you feel comfortable.
Whether you get together in person or via Zoom, if you ever catch yourself feeling uncomfortable, you can take a step back or leave the event early.
Engage In Self-Care
There is no such thing as too much self-care. The entire month of December tends to be much busier for most – therefore, a little extra self-care time may be needed to balance everything out.
You may have ten things on your list right now. But you certainly don’t have to get everything done today.
By engaging in intentional self-care, we can be mindful of our own needs and set time aside for our wellbeing. Our bodies are very smart and know how to communicate with us. If you’re feeling a little tired or not quite like yourself, that is your body trying to tell you it needs a break.
Engage In Your Community
Not all of us may be able to spend time with friends or family this holiday season.
If that’s the case, you can engage in your community virtually by attending virtual events or volunteering.
