4 Secrets to Reclaiming Your Joy!

Creating A Holiday Self-Care Plan

 

 

 

The Holiday Season. The most wonderful time of the year for some, not so wonderful for others, and a mixture of both for many. A time of joy, cheer, laughter, and renewal can also bring with it stress, loneliness, isolation, fatigue, and grief. The most important way to enjoy the celebration and not get sucked in by the woes and madness is to be intentional about taking care of yourself — mind, body, and spirit. Creating a Holiday Self-Care Plan in advance is one of the most effective ways to do that. Below are some ideas for each domain of your self-care plan.

MIND
