During this, the season of giving, sometimes we neglect the person that needs our care and love the most: ourselves. We spend so many hours shopping, wrapping and preparing for Christmas that we forget to take some time for ourselves to relax and regroup. Here are several ways to offer yourself some much needed attention and stave feelings of Bah-Humbug!

Don’t Neglect the Small Things

During the hectic holidays, we tend to forget about the small things that make life more enjoyable and meaningful such as playing with our children, quality time with your significant other (while wearing your favorite curve flattering ensemble), connecting with extended family or simply preparing a home cooked meal. These are the things that define the memorable moments of our lives; not how much money you saved purchasing little (or big) Johnny’s X Box 360. Cherish the little things; don’t sweat the things that aren’t so important. You’ll find that your are much happier at the end of the day.

Tell Yourself “I Love You”

This one is very important because it’s very seldom done. Looking in the mirror each day and professing our love for ourselves is a great esteem booster. I’m not talking about egotistical love. I’m talking about the type of love that makes you get up at five AM to work out or  to say no to that piece of cheesecake – well, maybe not cheesecake! 🙂 The point is Loving yourself, and the body you have, is a must and shouldn’t be neglected during the holidays.

Take a Self Care Sabbatical

After a day or two of shopping you will need some time to unwind from all the pushing, being trampled over and other less than pleasant experiences of holiday shopping. Why not take some time to unplug from world by visiting your favorite spa? Perhaps you’ve been meaning to finishing that juicy novel; why not fix yourself a nice cup of [insert your favorite holiday beverage here] and enjoy reading it to its awesome conclusion. You don’t have to do it alone either. Grab a few of your voluptuous friends, leave the little ones with hubby or a trusted neighbor and then pamper and party the day (or days!) away!
