It’s that special time of the year again when we all get festive sharing wonderful food, time and gifts. It is a holiday meant to be shared and cherished. You’ve made your list and checked it twice but have you thought of yourself? Giving to the ones you love is wonderful, but it’s okay to give back to yourself as well. This year why not take a very different approach and make sure you look after your own needs:
· Find time to relax and enjoy!
· It’s ok if the house is not spotless or you didn’t find the perfect gift.
· Maintain a balance diet without being too hard on yourself.
· Don’t just focus on others. Treat yourself to a little something you wouldn’t otherwise buy.
If you find yourself alone this holiday season, volunteer. Your local community has wonderful opportunities. Enjoy your holiday and keep your focus on what’s truly important.
Happy Holidays from the EASE Office.
