Since this is generally one of the busiest months of the year, and as women, we sometimes put ourselves last, I was so happy to see that for Flylady this month (a home organization group that I follow) the monthly mission was to do something to pamper yourself every day.
I love this idea because pampering always seems like it has to be something big or expensive, but it doesn't really have to be. So far I've done things like:
Made myself some hot chocolate and sit at the table for fifteen minutes without my to do list or anything else except sitting and relaxing.
I have a whole cupboard full of nice smelling candles, so I light one every day to make my house smell good.
Take a hot bubble bath.
Paint my nails.
Put some nice-smelling lotion on.
Call a friend I haven't talked to in a while.
Go to my favorite park on my way home from errands and roll down the window while I listen to Christmas songs and just breathe for a few minutes of solitude.
So, as you can see, they aren't big things, but they have made a world of difference in how peaceful I'm feeling this holiday season.
What are some small and simple things you do that pamper you?
