12 Days of Self-Care: A mini survival guide for the holidays

On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…a little self-care time. 

As much as we love the holiday season, we know it can be a stressful time. Whether you’re playing host this year for family or spending it on your own, the spirit of the holidays can lose its joyful spark when things become too overwhelming. So, it’s important to make sure you’re keeping up with a self care during the holidays, even if you think you won’t have enough time.

To make things easy for you, we’ve created a self-care guide for you to follow for the next 12 days: 

Day One: Skincare Ritual

Let’s get baubles rolling with a spa-inspired skincare routine! Put on a face mask, massage your face with our ultrasonic rose quartz roller, Riya or give yourself a deep cleanse with our ultrasonic cleansing brush, Petal 2.

Day Two: Meditate

For day two of self-care just…breathe. Listen to a guided meditation or sit in a quiet place for 10-15 minutes to help center your mind and body.

Day Three: Go for a gentle walk outside

Spend some time outside and take in some fresh oxygen to help improve your mood. If you can, go for a walk in a park or anywhere with trees and nature.  

Day Four: Take a break from social media

As much as we love scrolling through feeds, spending too much time on your phone can dampen your mental health. Challenge yourself to step away from social media today.  

Day Five: Move your body

Give yourself some me-time with a nice, warm bath. Pour yourself a glass of wine, lean back, and just let the stress melt away. 

Day Eleven: Winter cleaning

It’s time for some spring – uh, winter cleaning! A clean, organized home can help to declutter the mind.
