Self care during the holidays
Self care during the holidays is so important. Not only are the days shorter, but the activities and errands become endless. This is why it is so important that we take care of ourselves during the holiday season.

Self care can mean a lot of different things
For some people self care can mean eating well, hydrating, getting enough sleep, and exercising. For me I have tried to incorporate 20 minutes of yoga each morning. This sets the tone for the day and gets my endorphins going for the day!
Or it can mean some alone and quiet time. Making your surroundings soothing with tranquil music, dimmed lights, scented candles and a cup of herbal tea. We just purchased this amazing electric kettle and my whole family, including me and we are drinking a lot more tea these days.
Some people love the idea of a face and body regimen, a bubble bath followed by slipping into something warm and cozy. This is especially soothing during these long winter season. Or it can be a combination of all of the above!
- Bath Bombs
- Voluspa Santiago Huckleberry Large Embossed Glass Jar Candle (this is an amazing scent, its my favorite!)
- Yoga Mat
- Organic Tea box
- Meuller Electric Kettle
- Heating Pad for Neck and Shoulders
- Inspirational Bracelet Cuff Bracelets
- The 5-Minute Self-Care Journal for Women
- Apple AirPods Max Wireless Over-Ear Headphones

This yoga mat comes with a velcro strap to roll up and keep in your car, or closet. Treat yourself to a yoga studio class or I love YouTube for Boho Beautiful workouts. Just open it up and you re set to care for your body through Yoga poses.
Love my electric kettle. I made a corner of my kitchen counter a “tea” bar. Perfect to make a cup of tea after a long tiring day. My favorite is Lemon Ginger.
This weighted heating pad for your neck, wraps warmth and soothes those aching muscles. It incorporates stone seeds to help mold this 2 pound neck pad to reduce neck pain, especially from stress.
