Best Gifts for You This Holiday!

The holidays can be an incredibly exciting and hectic time of year. With family events, work obligations and extra effort that comes with the joyous season, it's easy to forget about our own wellbeing. That’s why practicing self-care during the holidays is so important for our physical, emotional and mental health. Here are nine simple ways to practice self-care this holiday season:

1. Spend Time in Nature – Going outside and spending some time in nature has been proven to have a calming effect on the mind and body. Whether it’s taking a walk or simply being present in your surroundings, it can help you reset your thoughts after a long day of activities.

2. Read A Book – Reading can be a great way to escape from reality for a little while and get lost in another world. Investing some time into reading can also provide meaningful insight into characters or plots that could benefit you personally.

3 . Journaling – Writing down your thoughts and feelings can help to process them better so you can make sense of what’s going on internally. This activity doesn’t even need to involve words; doodles, diagrams and other creative outlets are just as effective when it comes to expressing yourself through writing as well!

4. Exercise - Exercise is not only beneficial for physical health but also mental. Breaking up a sweat (even if just for 20 minutes) releases endorphins which give you that natural “high” feeling post workout which helps with stress relief!

5. Hot Bath - Taking a hot bath is not only relaxing but also provides many therapeutic benefits such as improved sleep hygiene, better circulation, relief of sore muscles and more!

6 . Yoga -Similar to exercise, yoga offers many mental benefits such as stress relief, mindfulness, improved focus plus countless physical benefits too!

7 . Enjoy Good Company & Conversation - Spending quality time with friends or family allows us to open up about anything we may be feeling at the moment without judgment or criticism–allowing us to feel supported during difficult times or seasons like Christmas or New Year's Eve.

8 . Do Something Creative – Hobbies such as painting, crafting or baking allow us to escape from reality for a short period of time so we can channel our energy positively instead of ruminating over worries or anxieties all day every day. Plus it gives us something positive to show off at gatherings this holiday season!

9 . Make Time For Yourself - Amidst all the celebrations and parties one must attend this season–remember that giving yourself enough personal space has its own healing benefits too! Whether that means booking yourself that massage appointment you deserved months ago or having dinner by yourself at home–taking care of yourself goes far beyond physical needs; nourishing our emotional selves should always come first if we want to enjoy everything else around us more fully too!


The bottom line is don't forget about yourself this holiday season; take care of your needs by engaging in activities that bring peace and joy into your life–no matter how small they might seem at first glance! Self-care will enable you throughout this wonderful season so don't hesitate any longer–get started now!
