Can you believe we are a couple of weeks away from Christmas?! The traffic is heavy and the stores are packed! During his time of year, it is so important to practice self-care. Perfect time of year to place this on your priority list. Are you productive or just busy? Are you always saying yes, when your body is saying no? It’s okay to say no. You can’t be everything to everybody. Now, don’t get me wrong; there are some obligations and activities that you have to attend, that may require expedited attention. I am speaking of those spare of the moment events and times changes, that just may leave you stressed out in trying to fulfill.
Being productive is more important than being busy. Do you plan ahead? Or just embrace the moment? Planning and preparation allows for consistency and not feeling overwhelmed. Protect Your Energy.
How do you practice self-care? For me, I enjoy reading and relaxation….and a good spa day! As much travel as I do for my career and commitment to business obligations, I make sure I always partake in some “me” time. Enjoying family time, eating healthy, and exercise allows for maintaining positive energy. Are you welcoming negativity in your life? Surround yourself with positive people. By giving ourselves a little compassion, we are able to embrace those friendships and relationships with a happy attitude and a SMILE!
Here are a few additional tips to practicing self-care:
– Know Your Purpose
– Express Gratitude/Journaling
– Stress Less
– Declutter Your Mind And Space
– Mini Stay-cation
