Our recap of our weekly newsletter, column "While We Stitch Away" for November 2020 was filled with my current reads, lists and some holiday self care. What are some of your favorite self care tidbits?
November 5th: Self Care through the Holidays...
A few years ago, this health blog gave some good advice for prioritizing self-care during the holiday season.
Searching around the Internet, I found some great reminders that I plan to do:
- Put yourself your to do list. Make relaxation a priority!
- Light a candle....it works. (My favorite is, of course, our Wax & Wool custom scent!)
- Put a flower in a vase by your bed. That brightens my evenings and mornings!
- Stretching daily... I fail on this big time but when I take time to do it, I feel so much better.
Ever heard of a love list?
And lastly, knitting is 100% something I add to my daily routine.
