Take Time to Rest







The holiday season for some can be joyous and for others it can bring about so many emotions and can be overwhelming. Amidst the hustle and bustle that societal pressure wants you to be, it's important to remember the true essence of this time: rest, rejuvenation, and quality time with yourself. So however you may be feeling in this moment about holidays, new year I invite you to take time to slow down, embrace the joy, and prioritize self-care. Here are some benefits and must do's during this holiday season and preparation of the New Year.


1. Unplug and Recharge:

In a world filled with constant connectivity, this time of the year provides a perfect opportunity to unplug from technology and recharge. Take a break from emails, social media, and work-related tasks. Instead, focus on being present with yourself, loved ones, friends, engaging in meaningful conversations, and creating lasting memories.


2. Embrace the Joy of Doing Nothing:

In our fast-paced lives, we often forget the beauty of doing nothing. Allow yourself to indulge in moments of stillness and relaxation. Curl up with a good book, take a leisurely walk in nature, or simply sit by the fireplace and savor the warmth. Embracing the joy of doing nothing can be incredibly rejuvenating for both the body and mind.


3. Prioritize Self-Care:

The holidays can be a time of heightened stress and obligations. The thought of end of the year to do list, new year planning can be overwhelming. It's crucial to prioritize self-care during this season. Make time for activities that nourish your soul, such as practicing yoga, taking long baths, or enjoying a quiet cup of tea. Remember, self-care is not selfish; it's essential for your overall well-being.


4. Connect with Nature:

Nature has a way of grounding and rejuvenating us. Take advantage of the this time to spend time outdoors. Go for a hike, have a picnic in the park, or simply sit in your backyard and soak up the beauty of nature. Connecting with the natural world can bring a sense of peace and tranquility to this holiday and new year experience.


5. Practice Gratitude:

The end of the year is a wonderful time to reflect on the blessings in our lives and cultivate gratitude. Take a few moments each day to express gratitude for the simple joys and the people who bring love and light into your life. Gratitude has the power to shift our perspective and bring a sense of contentment and fulfillment.


As the New Year season unfolds, remember to take time to rest, recharge, and embrace the joy of this time of the year. Prioritize self-care, unplug from technology, and connect with yourself, loved ones and nature. By slowing down and embracing the beauty of the present moment, you can truly experience the magic of this season.


Incorporate restful activities into your holiday and end of the year routine, whether it's taking a nap, practicing mindfulness, or enjoying a cozy movie night with loved ones. Allow yourself to fully immerse in the joy and relaxation that this time of year brings.


Remember, the holidays are not just about the external festivities and obligations. They are also an opportunity for inner reflection, gratitude, and self-care. Take this time to nourish your body, mind, and soul, so you can enter the new year feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.


As you embark on this holiday and end of the year season, let go of the need for perfection and instead embrace the beauty of imperfection. Give yourself permission to slow down, to rest, and to savor the simple moments that make this time of year so special.
