Can you believe it’s almost Christmas???
What a perfect opportunity to treat yourself to a well-deserved gift!
If you still recognize a weakness in your self-care area, now is the time to take advantage of sales! I have recently compared self-care to an emergency kit and the holidays are a perfect time to stock up on items that soothe and relax you! Let’s look at a few gift recommendations:
If you are still on the fence about buying a FitBit, my friend Kelly Wonderlin has an exciting review of the Bella Leaf, which looks more appealing than an armband!
To continue with the fitness theme, the Contigo water bottle with a handy pocket is not only good for hiking or long walks with the dog, but is a more attractive way to track daily water consumption!
As I have mentioned in previous posts, journaling is one of the best ways to deal with life’s stresses. Journaling helps with anxiety, grief, PTSD and many other mental health issues. Journaling action plans are also helpful if you’re an entrepeneur or are serious about tracking your success. I like this Happiness Project journal from Gretchen Rubin that gives daily journal ideas and keeps goals on track. (I also recommend the book that precedes this!)
If you want to read a new book during your Christmas break or during a long flight home, I highly recommend Don Miguel Ruiz’ book, The Four Agreements. These lessons seriously changed the way I see the world. This book is easy to read and provides lessons that make you say “Aha!” If my cashflow was endless I would gift this to everyone I know!
If you continue to feel confused as to how to treat yourself this year, take a look at your Instagram page! Think of all the pictures where you click “like” and wish you could purchase these items for yourself! This is how I purchased one of my favorite blogger tees from A Trendy Sparrow and my recent shirt from L.A. Chica. Take a look at my Instagram page for ideas!
Have you already created a gift list for yourself??
