I love the holidays. They also stress me out. And finding time for myself, even if it’s only 20 minutes, isn’t always easy. Yesterday, when I should have been making a grocery list, doing last minute errands, fixing up the guest room for my parents etc., I decided to shut the bathroom door (and lock it), light a candle, and take a hot soak with my Susanne Kaufmann Bath Oil. It took me a few minutes to quit making lists in my head and actually enjoy my bath. Eventually I did, and it was worth every second. My To Do list will get done and letting everything go for a bit, put me in a much better mood. And being in a better mood has a trickle down effect on others. I highly suggest finding a moment for yourself over the next couple of days–an indulgent grown-up self-imposed time out. Because you should enjoy the holidays….and the best way to do that is to sometimes tune it all out. At least for 20 minutes.
