Happy Wednesday everyone! Can you believe we only have a little over a week left until Christmas?! I know I keep saying it, but I just can’t figure out where the year has gone! It seems like just yesterday it was March, and now here we are halfway through December.
How are you doing — really? Has this year been hard on you? Are the stresses of the pandemic and the added difficulties of trying to celebrate while staying safe taking a toll on you? Has your own wellbeing taken a back seat to homeschooling, working, keeping your family fed, etc. during all this? Maybe it’s time to give ourselves some gifts.
On Monday, we talked about 6 Gifts to Give Yourself This Year – not the kind you buy, but the ones we really should be giving ourselves anyway. As we approach the end of this year and the beginning of next, let’s take a look at what we need to give ourselves in order to support our wellbeing.
This week, let’s ask ourselves:
Giving ourselves some of these ‘gifts’ can help us start to make our wellbeing a priority. Just a reminder — making our health a priority isn’t selfish, it’s a gift to those we love as well.
Speaking of giving ourselves priority, now is the perfect time to start thinking ahead for our wellness goals. Rather than waiting until New Year’s Day and making ‘resolutions’ that won’t stick, we can take a good look at what we’d like to accomplish with our wellness in the year ahead and set some concrete goals to get us there.
Do you feel making your wellness a priority is selfish, or do you see it as an act of love for those you care about? What ‘gifts’ do you want to give yourself this year and in the year to come? Please share!
