December is here, and now the countdown to Christmas is truly underway. With this also means that you’ll likely be in a mad dash to buy tons of gifts for family as well as sort out food and drink for the mob. But did you ever think about giving something back to yourself this Christmas season? There are lots of things you can do during the festive season to help you feel more relaxed and ready to celebrate, and here are just a few of those ways to treat yourself before Christmas comes around.

 

Have a break

 

We are all rushing around at this time of year. Whether it be getting those last sales in at work, making sure we have everything in order or anything else, the last few months of the year are always hectic. To give yourself a chance to reset and refresh it is a good idea to have a little break. You can either have a staycation and do nothing for a few days, or you can go and book a spa weekend with your other half or friends. This can be an awesome way to treat yourself and get rid of all that niggling tension before the festive season.

 

Get some ‘me’ time

 

Sometimes the best thing you can do for yourself is to truly be alone. There aren’t a lot of times in life where you’ll be able to be on your own completely and just enjoy the silence, but we all need this now and again. To make your life a little bit less stressful think about kicking everyone out of the house for an hour or two and just breathe. Enjoy being in your own company and it can really be a treat in itself.

 

Try a new hobby

 

We all need a hobby outside of our work and Home life, and it is a question of what hobby we choose whether we have that release from the rest of our life for a little while. Think for example of trying something totally new. Maybe you’ve always wanted to try yoga… go and book a class! Taking yourself to do something fun and new can be a great gift to yourself and it can help you to find out new things about yourself.

 

Have a shopping spree

 

Retail therapy is something you’ll likely need after buying gifts for everyone in your family, and there’s nothing wrong with buying yourself a gift or two also mug the way during your shopping trips! But let’s take a day out of your diary and spend it shopping in your local city centre. Buy some festive food from the market, walk around and enjoy the sun and just bit whatever you want. We don’t treat ourselves often enough.

 

Treat your body

If you have any insecurities which are making you feel a little bit down, a good idea could actually be to treat them or change them and make yourself feel more confident. For example you could use medical aesthetics to give yourself a little lift or a tuck, you could cut your hair and colour it, or you can simply change your fashion style. Have fun and do something truly for you.

Of course, your bed only plays a small part in your ability to get to sleep. Along with this, you also have to consider the way that you treat your body during the short time before you head to bed.

This will block the blue light, enabling your body to produce the melatonin it needs to make you feel drowsy. There are loads of methods people like to use to help them sleep.
