Boy, what a year it's been. Today, we're going to give you some tips on how to practice
self care during the COVID holidays. We know that the holidays may look a bit different
this year, but don't let that stop you from having an enjoyable holiday.
One way to do that is to start by helping others. During difficult times like these,
there's always a person in need. Examples of this may include donating to a local
food pantry, sending a card to someone that you may not see this year, or giving gifts
to a family in need.
Another self-care activity is being active. Go outside, enjoy the fresh air, take
a walk, go for a run, do yard work, or practice breathing exercises. Don't forget,
adults should get at least 150 minutes of exercise a week.
Take a break from exercising and enjoy a time of relaxation. Put on your comfiest
PJs and unplug yourself from all social media. While you're at it, put on a nice movie
and enjoy some warm, hot cocoa. Remember, even though it is important to help others,
we must also help ourselves.
While you're staying cozy at home, start on your holiday shopping, but don't let that
stress you out too much. Think of a way that you can save money; make a budget and
stick to it. If you're using a credit card, don't forget about those interest rates.
You don't want to still be paying for those holiday six months from now. Remember,
homemade gifts are just as special as purchased ones.
We hope your find these tips helpful and will give some of these a try.
