Self-care: Holiday Boundaries

We’re moving into the busy holiday-time of year. Set some boundaries for yourself so you can actually enjoy this holiday season and not get swept up in too much to-doing.

* Are you getting enough sleep? Are you drinking enough water? Are you using enough lotion or moisturizer?
* Are you taking on too much or just the right amount, or do you have time and inclination to volunteer and take on a bit more?
* Are you respecting your holiday financial budget? Are you spending your resources on quality items/events?
* Are you doing holiday activities you enjoy? Do you want to give yourself permission to skip something or say no?
* Are you spending time with the people you care about? Is there someone you can’t be with but you could call?

The holidays have some stereotypes and common experiences, but you don’t need to live them if they don’t bring you joy. Choose how you want to experience the holidays and give yourself permission to live your choices.
