Making time for me time can be hard enough. During the Holiday season, ‘me time’ can seem nearly impossible. Everything is so busy—running the kids around, decorating, entertaining, shopping, parties and gatherings, prepping for holiday meals, and so much more.
While it is true that the Holidays can be non-stop having to be “on,” and it’s hard to find time for oneself to relax—a.k.a. “holiday me time,” There is still hope. With a few simple hacks, you can create a space for me time in your Holiday schedule with the greatest of ease.
Indulge in the Dark
For moments when you are on a strict time schedule and cannot do an extended drive, make your me time portable. Buy some bars of dark chocolate at your neighborhood drug store, and pack them in your purse or travel bag to snack on while you are on the go. The calming affect that dark chocolate is known for is sure to help take you away to a more blissful state — without being distracted from your Holiday tasks.
Me Time During the Holidays
Take the Scenic Route
It is true that the shortest distance between two points is a straight line. However, when it comes to the Holidays, rushing from point A directly to point B can leave very little room for distressing between those trips to the stores and shopping malls. For one of your stops, try going off-course a bit and taking the scenic route to sneak a little time to unwind into your to-do list.
One of the best hacks for getting me time during the Holidays is to have products around you to help keep your mind and body at a peaceful and balanced state. Nature’s Bounty® Earthly Elements™ can help with that – their 100% pure and blended aromatherapy essential oils can definitely help with the busyness of the season.
Essential oils can set moods and enhance the smell of your home, bath, office, and car. Use them in an aromatherapy diffuser, add a few drops to your bath for a spa-like experience, or mix with a carrier oil for massages.
Each essential oil has its own unique aroma and “personality,” just like people, so everyone’s “me time” can truly be their own.
While buying gifts, planning parties, and caring for everyone else during the Holidays, don’t forget to take care of yourself. Incorporate that ‘me time’ strategies above to ensure that you season stays happy, balances, and enjoyable.
