Lets be real, the holidays are just plain busy. You are running around Christmas shopping, wrapping gifts, putting up décor, hosting parties, attending parties, making plans with family all on top of your regular routine. It can be easy to put “you time” aside and forget to focus on yourself a little. I know what you are probably thinking, that is the least important and you can focus on you after the New Year rolls around. Well, stop that! You should get to enjoy the Holidays too! Here are just a few things I’m doing to take care of myself this Holiday season.
Make Check Lists
To keep my sanity and stay organized, I am keeping a running checklist with different categories. I have a checklist for Christmas Gifts where I have each person’s name written down with their gift idea next to their name. That way, when I purchase the gift, I can check them off. Then, they get crossed off when their gift arrives. I have another checklist for “to dos” like buy wrapping paper, wrap gifts, mail Christmas cards etc. Then I have my normal “to do” check list. Having these is really helping me keep organized and SANE! I try to check a few things off each day so I’m not overwhelmed.
Don’t wait until the New Year to kick your resolution in gear. Start now! Even if it’s just a small routine like crunches in the morning and lunges at night. Every little bit helps! Also, do yourself a favor and try Degree MOTIONSENSE, available at H-E-B. With your active holiday lifestyle of rushing around, you need a deodorant that can keep up with your schedule and keep you feeling fresh with every move. Degree MOTIONSENSE has quickly become a favorite of mine. Once applied, MOTIONSENSE microcapsules sit on the surface of the skin and as you move, underarm friction causes the capsules to burst, releasing fresh fragrance. This is the only antiperspirant out there that reacts directly to movement! Pick up Degree MOTIONSENSE® at your local H-E-B and try it for yourself. You can save $1 on any two (2) Degree MOTIONSENSE or one (1) Degree Clinical Antiperspirant at H-E-B (look for your yellow in-store coupon). Get moving and stock up before this offer runs out!
Oh, and I have a FABULOUS GIVEAWAY going!! THREE Lucky winners will win a $25 H-E-B Gift card, FitBit Blaze & Degree Products. Head to my Facebook page to enter to win!!
Ahh! Yes, coffee breaks. I mean if you are going to be this busy, you will need caffeine. Can I get an amen?! Take those precious moments to yourself and enjoy your favorite coffee. I tend to have mine every morning when I first get to work. I arrive early, sip on my coffee, read my devotional, then answer emails before anyone is even in the office yet. It is a great “me moment” in the mornings. On weekends, I do the same thing, but just tend to have Disney Jr. on the tv for Brooke in the background.
Another relaxing guilty pleasure of mine is watching Christmas movies my hubby. We have a full lineup of Christmas movies that we watch every year and it is our down time at night. It is so relaxing to just cuddle up and watch movies. Plus, it gets us in the Holiday spirit. You can’t go wrong with a good movie.
