It’s the most wonderful time of year – well, for the most part. We do our best to enjoy the holidays, make everything just so for our families and cross off that list with thoughtful “make you feel special” gifts. But there is a sort of rush feeling that goes along with that, especially during the year Thanksgiving came a week late (I would like to be in on the meeting the next time someone decides that is a good idea). While I look forward to December it does cause some unavoidable tension and stress. Besides the fact that work is at an all time rush this month I am also a wife and mother who want the holidays to be as perfect as possible for my family. Obviously there are things I can change on a day to day basis – learning how to not say “yes” all the time would probably be at the top of the list. Thankfully there are also products out there that can help me unwind. I’m fairly certain I am not the only girl who wouldn’t mind Santa throwing one of these in her stocking:
1Lancome Hydra Zen Neocalm Multi-Relief Anti-Stress Moisturising Cream 2Kava Kava Root Extract by 1Hour Break 3Kiehl’s Since 1851 ‘Skin Rescuer’ Stress-Minimizing Daily Hydrator 4Earth Therapeutics Microwavable Anti-Stress Sinus Pillow 5Freeman Feeling Beautiful Dead Sea Minerals Facial Anti-Stress Mask 6Pevonia Essential Oils Bath & Shower Gel- Anti-Stress
Until I get a chance to try any of these products I will do my best to drink lots of water and get as much rest as possible. At the end of the day it is the people we love that make this season so grand. Being 100% in the moment with them means more than any gift ever will. Learning to take deep breaths and not worry so much about all the things that do not matter (or we have no control over) is a lesson to last throughout the entire year.
Here’s to our health and well being!
