The enjoyment and warm feeling that Thanksgiving brings can also come with burnout, especially for moms. Holidays, just like this, come with many things to prepare. However, amidst the excitement and preparation, it's important for mothers not to neglect self-care.
With that, here are practical tips to navigate holiday stress while keeping your well-being at the forefront.
Create Moments of Calm: Holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas can be intense, especially for moms who want to make things perfect. Unfortunately, sometimes pressures and busyness get the best of us. So, when you feel overwhelmed, make sure to do some meditation, practice proper breathing, shake off unwanted thoughts and feelings, play some relaxing music, and create your own self-care time. Staying calm and engaging in activities that calm you down allows you to recharge and approach the festivities with a refreshed spirit.
Keep in mind the real reason behind the holiday: With all the busyness these holidays bring, we tend to fixate our minds on the things and activities we need to prepare and the numerous demands from our family, losing sight of the real meaning behind why we need to celebrate.
Remember, you don’t have to make everything perfect or try to fit in too much or do everything that other families have been doing. Instead, choose what is really important and do the things that will give you and your family joy and happiness. Perhaps focus more on spending time with your loved ones and strive to find quality time together.
Share the Load: It's vital to know that you don't have to carry the burden alone during the holiday. Well, it makes sense when your kids can't help you yet, but if it's not the case, you can always share responsibilities with your husband and family members. It's amazing when everyone contributes to the preparations, transforming the holiday into a collective effort that fosters a sense of togetherness—this can make the holiday celebration more meaningful.
Go ahead and treat yourself too: When was the last time you were able to buy yourself a gift? If it's been so long that you can no longer remember, maybe it's the best opportunity to treat yourself.
Remember that it’s not selfish to do some self-care, especially when you've been putting your needs in the back seat. Take a moment to give yourself some skincare or go for a massage after the preparation is over.
Prioritize Your Rest: Amidst the holiday hustle, still prioritize your rest. Quality sleep is the foundation of well-being, providing the energy and resilience needed to navigate the busyness the holiday brings.
Consider incorporating natural sleep aids into your routine, such as Mummy's Miracle Stress Rest supplement and Deep sleep supplement, crafted with a blend of soothing ingredients designed to support a peaceful night's sleep.
