It is that time of year again. The trees are up and decorated, everyone is singing Christmas carols and suddenly you have 101 things to do! Whether it is finding and buying that perfect Christmas gift or setting aside the time to visit all the relatives, the holiday season, although magical, can also be unbelievably stressful. Now more than ever it is important to make the effort to look after yourself – mind and body – to ensure you can enjoy the festivities without feeling overwhelmed. Try these useful tips to make sure your Christmas is a great one.
Make sure you get plenty of sleep
It’s essential that you get a good night’s sleep during the Christmas period to keep you sharp and ready for the holiday season. Sleep deprivation can leave you tired, emotional, frustrated and quickly ruin your day, if not the whole festive season. It’s amazing what a difference being relaxed and well-rested can do to your health and state of mind. If you feel under pressure or overstressed and are struggling to sleep, try out transdermal magnesium therapy – such as bathing in magnesium bath salts – to help you relax and switch off a racing mind before bed.
Make time for yourself
Try and carve out a little bit of time for yourself every day to do something that you enjoy, whether it is reading, yoga, drawing or any number of other hobbies. It is important not to forget to look after yourself during the holiday season. It is very easy to spend so much time planning and looking after everything and everyone else, that you lose track of looking after yourself and the last thing you want to do is to burn out! For added benefits, once a week, set aside a longer period of time for yourself to revitalise for the following week, go out for a walk, exercise or catch up with some friends. Making time for yourself during the festive season will keep you happy and healthy – perhaps the greatest gift of all.
