The holidays can be one of the most stressful times of the year, but there are still plenty of ways to keep your spirits bright!
While buying others gifts, don’t forget to gift yourself something, too. One popular haircare brand, Briogeo, released a Scalp Revival Therapy Kit that will help solve any of your hair-related woes. Or maybe you can finally splurge on that monthly wine subscription you’ve been eyeing, such as one from Winc. Whatever self-care means to you, make sure to leave ample time in the day for you.
Keep traditions alive
If you can’t get the whole family together for the holidays this year, keep your cookie-baking or gingerbread-house-decorating traditions going through video chats! Schedule family events like you normally would. Then when the time comes, dress up, play music, and light festive candles. It won’t be quite the same, but you’ll all still feel the holiday cheer.
Create a festive atmosphere
Take your decorating up a notch by setting up a hot chocolate station in your kitchen, swapping out current wall art for holiday-themed pieces, and dressing countertops and mantles with bows, greenery, and mini ornaments.
Try new recipes
Winter is always a good time of year to switch out the old for the new. Instead of sweet potato pie, try this gluten-free version. These healthy holiday cookies will make for a fun baking day, and you can’t go wrong with a healthier take on eggnog!
Shop ‘til you drop
For many people, shopping is a marker of the holiday season. If you’re going to shop in person, just make sure you have a game plan to get through the crowds with maximum efficiency. And as always, you can score the same deals and cross everyone off your gift-buying list by shopping online.
