It’s Sunday night when I wrote this and I am tired from the weekend! I hosted my daughter’s Friendsmas on Saturday and baked holiday cookies on Sunday. So now at the end of the weekend and before the start of the week I am giving myself a reminder. That it’s important to remember self care during the holidays.
Working during the holidays is always a drain. We still have a full schedule of work, commute (I am going into the city 4 days a week) and add to that if you have to shop for gifts. Especially true this year because I am hosting. It is so important to remember ourselves. I had talked about the cozy trend in one of my previous posts ( you can read that here). As I was thinking about this on Sunday night, I made an image of what self care during the holidays would be to me at the moment.

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 15 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
