If my mail as editor of Organized Christmas is any guide, there are a lot of tired holiday planners come December 26! Between holiday prep and the excitement of the Christmas season, self-care can go missing for many of us.
Fight back! Plan personal pampering sessions now, and add them to the holiday calendar.
"If Mama's not happy, nobody's happy"; your mood affects the whole family. If you find the season stressful, plan now for some personal pampering sessions during the coming weeks. A massage, a retreat, or even a gathering with girlfriends can be a welcome break during the season.
Better: look for ways to lighten the holiday load while you relax. Example: plan a gift-wrap party with friends. Setting aside an afternoon for cookies and coffee while you wrap gifts together converts a chore into fellowship and fun.
