Self-care through the Holidays should become a priority for everyone.

With all the shopping, cooking, and parties stress increases. Remembering to take care of yourself so that you can enjoy being with family friends is key. According to the following are a few ways to practice self-care:
•Let go of perfectionism.
•Reassess your priorities.
•Amend your diet.
•Make time for exercise.
•Practice meditation.
•Take a daily walk.
•Prepare and eat a meal mindfully.
•Enjoy a quiet cup of tea.
•Read a novel.
•Purge toxic people.
•Create and enforce boundaries.
•Define your values.
•Get rid of clutter.
•Sleep late.
•Prepare the night before.
These are just a few of the ideas that suggest for starting healthy self-care practices. Remember that the Holidays are supposed to be a time of joy and togetherness. If you find you are feeling stressed take a time out for yourself. Make sure to keep a handy list of things that you enjoy doing just for you so you can check in with how many self-care practices are being maintained.
We at Crisis Services of North Alabama want to wish everyone a very Happy Holiday Season. Every home deserves to be filled with peace, love, and respect. If you find that your home is lacking some of these things it might be a good idea to reach out to an advocate to see if you could benefit from support and counseling on relationships. Do not go through this alone. Call us today. We can help.
