The holidays can be a stressful time. They are supposed to be filled with fun, family and feasting, but it doesn’t always happen that way, and that makes it even more stressful. Too many commitments, family dynamics, a budget stretched to the max and I could go on.
Take a deep breath, and make some time to prioritize. Exercise, sleep and diet are more important than ever at this time of year. Utilize some shortcuts. You can get a pumpkin pie from Costco instead of baking one from scratch. Maybe you don’t need to make dozens of Christmas cookies this year. If a picture is worth a thousand words, why not send photo holiday cards and forget about writing notes in each one?
The ABCs of holiday survival can help you not only survive the holidays, but thrive during the holidays!
A is for Aromatherapy
B is for Beauty Sleep
With all the shopping, work parties, kid’s Christmas programs, and decorating, you need the best night’s sleep possible, and what could be better than waking up to more beautiful skin with Beauty Sleep Concentrate? The restful aroma will ease you to sleep, while the serum supports your skin’s night time rejuvenation. Spritz a little Goodnight Pillow Mist on you pillow, and you are bound to sleep better.
C is for Cocoa & Cleanse
Caring for your inner health with superfood that are nutritionally dense with super-nutrients makes sense at this time of year, when meals can be on the run, and not always the healthiest. Fix yourself an Organic Cocoa Blend Rebalance instead of stopping at Starbucks for a sugar laden mocha. This comforting blend of mood enhancing cocoa and blueberry contains B vitamins and adaptogens – rhodiola, shiitake mushrooms, mama and ashwagandha to help you cope with stress and strain.
Organic Fiber Blend Cleanse contains psyllium husk and Bacillus coagulans to help maintain healthy gut function.
Remember, by taking care of yourself, you are taking care of your family and loved ones. And done is better than perfect, any day!
