Tis’ the season for giving, for sharing and for treating but it’s also important to remember yourself amongst the hustle and bustle of Christmas. 

Around Christmas, we spend a lot of time finding the perfect gift for our friends and family, often resulting in a lot of stress and last minute buys. It’s during this period that my family usually remind me that I don’t need to be spending a fortune on them, that they are far more grateful for my time spent with them since moving away and that I should save my money for other things. I have to confess, in the past, I’ve rarely taken the advice as I absolutely love finding and gifting presents, however, this year, I’m going to be more mindful and sensible and take more care of myself. 

It’s true, there is a lot of pressure surrounding Christmas: giving the best gifts, serving the most delicious roast, decorating your home to the highest standard, but sometimes we just need to take a step back and not let it overwhelm us. Christmas comes just once a year, so it’s totally understandable why some people go to extreme lengths, but also remember it’s okay not to.  

Consider treating yourself this year, whether that’s by being a little kinder to yourself and reducing pressure and self-expectations, or maybe your treat is in the form of buying those shoes you’ve been eyeing up all year, or snuggling up one evening with a hot chocolate and Christmas film- after all you deserve it. 

However you choose to spend your Christmas, I hope you enjoy it!
