Finding Ways to Nurture Yourself
As we find ourselves in the midst of a hectic holiday season, acknowledging the fact that we all need a little TLC right now is crucial. Not all stress we experience during the holidays is negative. Running around in a thousand different directions, though, can take a toll on the strongest of us. Carving out ways to nurture ourselves during this festive time can go a long way in ensuring that we aren’t completely depleted by the time January 1st comes around.
Here are some ideas to keep you on top of your game this holiday season:
- Drinking lots of water, especially since most of us enjoy alcohol more often at holiday parties, will keep you feeling so much better.
- Balance the unhealthy foods with some occasional healthy choices. There will be plenty of opportunities the next few weeks to eat food items that wouldn’t be on our “normal” list as baked goods are everywhere we look. Just focus more often than not, on enjoying a protein shake by blending fruits and veggies with some almond milk, ice and vegan protein powder. It tastes better than you think and your energy will stay amped up as you prevent blood sugar crashes.
- Quality time with loved ones is priceless. Don’t forget to focus on the people in your life even though you have a million things to do. We so often get so caught up in buying, buying, buying, that we neglect taking the time to have connections with our favorite people. Experiences with each other will last a lifetime and do so much for our heart and soul.
- Set aside time for slumber. Sleep is something we all could use more of on a nightly basis. Forcing yourself to go to bed at a regular time each night, as well as, setting aside enough hours for sleep will give you the stamina you need to tackle any task that comes your way.
- Pamper yourself. Lastly, we all want to feel like we look good on the outside during this season of celebration. Visiting your favorite injector to have some botox and fillers can keep you looking youthful and fresh for all of those holiday parties. Smooth lines and wrinkles, add lift, and bring back volume so you feel a decade younger.
