Taking Care During the Holidays

Posted by Michele Crawford - Health

With the holiday season in full swing, many of us may find ourselves already feeling a bit over tired, over spent and over socialized. While this time of year may invoke feelings of love and joy, it can also be a time of increased demands and being pulled in many directions.

During the season of giving, don't forget to give to yourself first. No one wants to begin the new year feeling exhausted, burned out and broke. With the feeling of one more party to attend, one more gift to buy, or one more dish to make, sticking to your boundaries can be a real challenge.

I invite you to give yourself permission to say "no" when you need to. I challenge you to not feel guilty for staying in, if that is what your body and mind are craving.

Twice in the past week, I have read about the HALT Principle. I believe this is good advice anytime, yet especially during the holidays. - Don't allow yourself to get too:

Hungry

Angry

Lonely

Tired

So remember to keep yourself well fed, emotionally stable, in good company and get plenty of rest. By listening to your heart and giving yourself the self-care you need, the extra time with loved ones this season will be all the merrier.
