I know that I tend to stress out during the holiday season and that I am not alone. So this giveaway is just a reminder for you to take a few minutes now and then for yourself during the holiday madness. Some ideas of things you can do for a bit of stress relief….

  • Get a massage, mani, pedi, or other spa treatment
    Find a local spa you like and treat yourself to some sort of relaxing treatment. Try to book an appointment when they are not as busy also. Go by yourself also so you do not have to chit chat with anyone.
  • Take a bubble bath or long shower
    Make some time for a bubble bath or long shower (not everyone is a bath person). Have someone else taking care of the kids if you need to – just so you can close the bathroom door and not be interrupted and relax.
  • Get up before everyone else and enjoy the quiet
    Take 10 minutes before you wake anyone else in the house to just wake up, have a cup of tea or coffee, enjoy what is outside your window. No tech during this time either – just you and your thoughts.

Everyone is a bit different, but just make time for yourself. Anything you find relaxing and quiet. Taking the time to de-stress yourself will wear off to your family too! And now, a little gift from me to help you unwind.
