Holiday Self-Care Tips – Mindfully Surviving the Holidays

The holidays, in theory, should be one of the happiest times of the year, but instead, for many, it is one of the most stressful times of the year. This is a time of year, in which many face unwanted family secrets, dramas, and toxicity that they feel they must endure, year after year.

If you are not quite ready to go on the holidays, on your own terms, here is a handy self-care list that you can use in the privacy of your own guest room, or even during an extended trip to the bathroom while showering. Whatever your situation is, take some time to get away, and love on yourself for an hour, or two, each day, if you are being bombarded by unwanted energies.

Refreshing your mind, body, and spirit, can help you to take on each new day with a vibrant vibe, and a positive attitude because you are taking care of yourself first, each morning. If you do not have to face negative vibes this holiday season, this list can help you keep yourself on track. The holidays tend to be a time of year when many of us fall out of routine.

Have some fun, eat that extra cookie, but before it is time to go home, give yourself a couple of days, in which you build your body up, to expect your usual routine again. This means, before leaving to go back home, you may be taking a few to-go plates along with you, to avoid overeating. You may need to say no to that extra glass of egg nog. And most of all, while everyone else wants to sleep, you may be the only one up doing yoga, nature time, and watching the sunrise.

The most important tip I have to give, is to know your limit, whether we are talking about food, drama, toxic relationships, or just overall overwhelm. Boundaries are healthy and there is no occasion that is so special, it is worth walking away from yourself, and your well-being.
