Are you flying, driving, shopping, decorating, cooking, and rushing from one thing to the next? You might be asking yourself, do I really need to take time for myself? I really don't feel like I have that much time. If you are stressed and fatigued on a daily basis, taking time for YOU is what will help you get through. And when you are more relaxed and peaceful, you are more productive. You can approach this holiday season from a place of relaxation and peace, then that's the directions your days will follow.
Here are a few ways you can practice self- care:
Connect with your inner self.
Find a time in the day to focus on the quiet. It's easy to get wrapped up in the hustle and bustle of the day. Our environments so easily get filled up with constant stimuli and noise. Whether you take in a sunrise or sunset, or simply take in the sounds of nature. You'll be glad you did!
Recharge with Massage.
Getting a massage is a great investment in your current and future well being. Not only does it give you an overall sense of calm, it improves your mood, keeps you healthier, clears your mind, and keeps your body moving and working the way it should.
Disconnect from Distractions.
I know it seems relaxing to lounge in your favorite chair and be on your tablet or phone surfing the internet, but you are still plugged in. Unplugging and being in the present not only helps you fully relax, but gives you time to be completely present with your loved ones. Play a board game, go on a nature walk, or take a painting class.
Taking care of yourself physically and mentally is not selfish, it helps ensure you live up to your potential. So take the time to book one of my relaxing and beneficial massages. Whether it's for you, a friend, loved one, or maybe you are just the best boss ever and surprise your office with my onsite chair massage.
Come from a place of peace and relaxation this holiday season.
