Self Care During the Holidays 🎄


Is the holiday season starting to give you some stress? When you’re busy taking care of everyone else, sometimes you forget to take care of yourself. 

This week we’re focusing on self care during the holidays. Here are some doable self-care tips.

Self-Care Tip #1: Keep warm with a mug of hot cocoa

There’s just something ultra cozy about warm butternut squash.

In particular I love a delicious pasta carbonara with butternut squash bites, but let’s not limit butternut squash to just dinner.

Self-Care Tip #4: Soak in a hot bath

Soaking in a hot bath not only soothes those tired muscles. It is also one great way to give yourself some pampering time.

Make this self-care routine even more indulgent by using all-natural Susan’s Soaps. A couple of my favorite items are Whipped Body Butter and her luxurious Face Masque.


Self-Care Tip #5: Take some YOU time to read a happy Christmas or Holiday book

The holidays can indeed take a toll on yourself, especially if you’re among the many who easily tend to forget the word “me” in Merry after all the stressful shopping and holiday planning.

Sit down and grab your favorite book. If you haven’t got anything to read yet, I highly recommend one of my favorite holiday books - "The Christmas Train” by David Baldacci.
