As we all know, the holidays can be a stressful time for everyone. We all have the fantasy in which the holidays go smoothly and easily, without the stress of buying presents, wrapping presents, writing blog posts, baking all the sugar cookies you can while frantically searching for wrapping paper. Oh, and don’t forget finishing off all the decorating. Maybe you’re even cleaning up the house for guests that only come once a year. (Raises hand)
So after all that, you’re pretty worn out.
Basically, this is a guide on how to recharge your batteries to help stay festive all throughout the holidays!
If it gets cold in your area…
RELAX BY THE FIRE🔥
Seriously, who wouldn’t love just to sit by the fire and read a nice book, perhaps a christmas themed book?
Make Hot Chocolate and…
Watch a Christmas Movie 🎅🏻
Preharbly hallmark, because you can’t go a whole holiday season without watching Amelia fall in love in a festive small town! Honestly though, the ones with Candace Cameron Bure are a lot better. 😂
Take a deep breath and…
There are lots of good relaxing stretches out there. Or you could do some really stretchy stretches, like lunges, back bends, and splits.
Tip: Make sure to breathe in and out steadily, and focus on your breathing. It definitely helps!
Grab a candle and some bubbles and…
Take a bath🛁
This is a little cliche, and some people don’t like sitting in water with their own filth, but you could shower of first if that makes you feel any better.
Bathing has excellent health benefits, like elevate your mood, help you to sleep better, and relieve muscle pain. And don’t forget the peppermint scented candle.
Get some more exercise and…
GO FOR A WALK🚶♀️
No matter where you live, there will always be somewhere to walk. It’ll help you gather your thoughts and think about what you have to do.
And that folks, is the aftermath of procrastination.
But! I think this is a good time to post, even though it is really bad quality…
Anyway, I recently got a Goodreads account! You can go to the actual site, and on the sidebar you’ll see my TBR! I’m still trying to figure it out, but I think I’m getting the hang of it!
ALSO, I read Unlocked! My library gets an E-Book version and I can just go to their online catalog and reserve it for when it comes out! I was first in line! It was okay, but maybe not my favorite, or my least favorite.
So Lizzy gave my a brilliant idea on what I should do to celebrate 200 followers! A contest! I was thinking maybe a short story contest, but what do you guys think? What type of contest should I do? It might take place in february, because I stocked up my posting schedule a little too well, and now I have a bunch of posts planned from today all the way to January 8th… 😅 So if you want me to do like, a big tag post on the 15th of January, I’ll totally do that, but you just have to make sure to tell me on my Tag page, which is super helpful!
Anyway, thanks for reading and be sure to check in Thanksgiving day, because I have a post scheduled for then and it’s super fun!
