Self Care During the Holidays

Published by Aubrey Sohaney

While the holidays are a festive and fun time, there’s no denying that there is stress involved. With holiday parties, buying presents, decorating, perhaps hosting an event, and more, it can seem like there is never enough time in the day. However, it is important that you take some time to yourself for basic self-care, and know how to stay organized so that you can enjoy the holidays!

Diet and Exercise

One of the best ways to lower your stress levels and make it through the holidays with a smile is to stay relatively healthy. We know how tempting it is to reach for all of the goodies, but try to limit the sweet treats! Additionally, if you can carve out a half hour every other day just to get some exercise in, your body will thank you. Exercise releases endorphins, which will help increase your happiness and decrease stress levels!

Stay Organized

Basic self-care includes doing what you can to stay on top of your workload, and keeping everything organized. If you are hosting a party, make sure to get a head count and make a list of everything that needs to get done and when. If you have to purchase presents for many people, try to purchase them with at least a week to go so you will have time to wrap them. This also gives you a little bit of time in case you need to purchase something else or if you ordered them online. You’ll also want to keep track of all the extra events that you or your family are going to!

Be Optimistic

Simple positive thinking and affirmations go a long way in the world of self-care. When you wake up in the morning, think about how great the day will be and how you can be productive in your holiday preparing, rather than thinking about how much you have to do and if you will enjoy it or not. In addition to optimism, if you need a short break throughout the day, take them! A quick relaxation break can do wonders for your mental health.

The holidays are a hectic time for many, but there are some great ways that you can still enjoy them while being busy! Remember to make your health a priority; otherwise the New Year will start with a high burnout rate. You can also book an appointment at our Infinity Medical Spa for right after the holidays!

I had a wonderful experience with Allison and I love my results! She took the time to go through all of my questions and made me feel at ease. I look forward to seeing her again this year!

Veronica is the best!!! She is so sweet, very knowledgeable, and helped me feel comfortable throughout the entire Botox and filler process. My results are everything I was looking for! Thanks for my confidence boost! I’ll definitely be back.

First time here & I will definitely be back! Allison did my Botox. She was honest when I asked her what areas she thought botox would be best for me & explained the whole process. I have received botox at other cosmetic centers & this was by far the best experience!
