Gift Yourself with a Focus on Self-Care!

‘Tis the season! Many of us love the holidays, but when you get past the expected special moments, there is a lot more demand.

  • Holiday feasts – are you doing the cooking?
  • Holiday parties – are you hosting, or organizing the event?
  • Holiday giving – is it your job to do all the shopping? And the wrapping?
  • Holiday cards – are you the one who writes the letter or signs and addresses the cards?
  • And then there’s cleaning the house, hosting houseguests ….
  • And your day-to-day responsibilities, too!

I don’t know about you, but I’m tired just reading this! How ‘bout you? You could hire some help or you could come into this holiday season with a plan to focus on nourishing yourself for the tasks at hand. And by nourishing yourself, I’m not speaking of what you eat. There is more to it than food.

We women – and men, too – need to nourish our minds, our spirits, our innermost beings. That’s where self-care comes in. Self-care is defined as any activity we do deliberately in order to take care of our mental, emotional, and physical health.

Can you see how important this must be … and how much it encompasses?
