The Twelve Days of Christmas Sanity: Day 2

By December 14, 2010

Follow me on:

On the second day of Christmas,
I gave a gift to me:
Two great big hugs,
and an evening out just for me.

Think about what a hug does for you. It warms you up from head to toe and gives you a moment to breathe and relax. What are some things that you could do for yourself that would be the equivalent of a great big hug? How about:

  • A bubble bath
  • A DIY manicure or pedicure
  • Recording your favorite show so you can watch it all alone, with no distractions
  • Treating yourself to your favorite specialty coffee

There are dozens of ways to do something nice for yourself now and then, just to acknowledge that the work you're doing--like raising your kids and doing what you can to help others--really does matter. You are worth celebrating!
