Holidays
4 years ago

The holidays are one of the most stressful times, so why do we neglect our needs most this time of year? Here are four ways to give yourself the gift of self-care! 

  • Prioritize sleep. Sleep is crucial for energy, peace, joy. If you're not sleeping enough, take naps, catch up on weekends or get to bed earlier. 
  • Put foods in your body that give you energy and vibrancy. 
  • Exercise. Even a walk around the block, taking the stairs or playing with your kids can strengthen you mentally and physically. 
  • Do something kind for yourself each day. 

Your body, mind and family will thank you for it!

Perfect advice, as always, Dr. Christina Hibbert . I especially love the reminder to be kind to ourselves. It's often more common not to be. Thank you for the wise words, my friend. xoxo
