12 Days of Christmas ~ Day 8 ~ Taking Time for Yourself Over the Holidays

12 Days of Christmas ~ Day 8 ~ Taking Time for Yourself Over the Holidays


The holidays can be a very busy and stressful time.

I want to encourage you to remember to take time

to slow down, relax, do things that recharge you so

that you can enjoy the busy parts of the season.



Have a coffee and a treat by the Christmas Tree




Wait for a quiet moment and create a cozy spot where you can just chill

and enjoy the quiet of your home with the twinkling lights of the season.




Write it Down




Question of the Day Journal




This 5-10 minute a day ritual is a prompt to spend time thinking about

something other than the stresses of everyday life. The question is a great start to

document your thoughts at that time in your life. It’s so fascinating to see how

far we have come when we dig out one of these journals 5 years later.




Question of the Day Journal for Kids



They have a kids version of this and I think they are such an amazing tool to capture

who your kids are. It’s like taking a photograph of their amazing little personalities.

Making it a nightly ritual to ask your kids one question and document their

answer will be such an awesome keepsake for when they’re older.




Spend Time Outside



Spending time outside being active is a great way to recharge!










Buy your Favourite Treat






Eat the Chocolate!

The holidays are a time to indulge but I like to

pick my absolute favourite treats so it’s worth it!





Take care of yourself, enjoy your family and the fun that the Christmas season brings!


I’ll be back tomorrow for Day 9 of my 12 Days of Christmas!
