10 Ideas for Holiday Self-Care

Merry Christmas, y’all!
We’ve got our matching tacky Christmas cat shirts on, and we’re ready for a much needed break.

A reminder to my counselor friends about self-care this holiday season:
Take time to care of yourself well.
Even if that means doing nothing for a bit.
Disconnect: engage in a real time, face to face conversation.
Read that book (or list of books) you’ve been meaning to get around to.
Bake some treats. Enjoy them in good company.
Do something physical: go ice skating, go on a walk, play some Just Dance.
Do something fun: play a card game or a board game.
Catch up on those lost seasons of Netflix.
(May I recommend LOST, Friday Night Lights, Freaks and Geeks, The Office, Parks and Rec?)
Treat yo self to a pedicure or massage.
Write a letter. Who doesn’t like snail mail?
Get some sleep. Nap. Nap some more.
Do something kind for someone else.

Enjoy the rest of 2013!
