Self care isn’t selfish, especially when it comes to the festive season. After all, it can be all too easy to everyone else first and end up frazzled and burnt out! The good news is you can find a selection box of options for some pampering below.
Some peace and quiet
To renew festivals from possession you all need to find some peace and quiet. Now it might be a bit of a challenge over the Christmas period as it tends to be both hectic and noisy. Although, if you plan in a day to yourself beforehand, you are much more likely to keep to this commitment.
Be sure to use this time to turn off TV and phone, and get a real rest as well. You may even wish to ask the people that you share your home with to leave for a while. Then you can truly relax and have some quality time to yourself for pampering.
Of course you don’t have to be absolute silent if you would rather not. Instead you can put on a relaxing meditative playlist. plenty of Spa inspired sessions on streaming services like Spotify to try for this.
Some spiritual inspiration
Next for your festive pamper session it can be a really good idea to find something that inspires you spiritually. Something that helps you to reconnect with your values and what really matters to you in life.
Now that doesn’t mean you have to dive wholeheartedly into the Christmas story by any means. In fact, many people have religious beliefs other than the Christian ones that are so prominent at this time of year. While many others see themselves as spiritual people rather than religious ones. Therefore it may be much more appropriate to find a book, poem, or some inspirational quotes or phrases to frame your pamper session.
A little luxury
A little luxury in this life does us the power of good, and where better to treat ourselves to this than during a pamper session? I’m talking about soft cotton bathrobes here that feel as smooth as butter against your skin. A fancy candle that permeates a wonderful scent through your home is perfect for making your pamper session even more relaxing as well. You may even want to invest in a microfiber towel to keep your hair neatly tucked away while you apply a face mask.
Potions and lotions
Finally when it comes to pampering yourself this festive season it’s a smart idea to invest in some high end potions and lotions for your bath, and body. Of course, if you have been good this year, Santa may leave some under the tree for you. Although, if you’d rather treat yourself it’s worth knowing that many chemists have some cracking offers before xmas and then launch straight into their sales come 25th. Something that means you can spoil yourself with some posh body butter, fancy face cream, or even some luxurious bubble bath without breaking the bank.
