Be kind to yourself and simplify this holiday season. Maybe you are known in your family and friend circle to be the person who goes above and beyond every holiday season – hosting the parties, gifting the perfect gift, having a firm handle on everything and anything having to do with the holidays. Give yourself a pass from being the holiday spirit guru this year. Someone else can take that on. This year, take time to simplify your holiday experience. Be more selfish about taking care of you and making sure you have the energy and time to give to the people reliant upon you. You do not need to do everything, you can do the bare minimum and feel okay with it. Next year you will be in a completely different place, emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually. Give yourself this holiday season to heal and care for yourself by not taking on more than is absolutely necessary.
