Here are some tried-and-true tips to get through all the hustle and bustle without burning out...
1. CALM YOUR MIND
*Diana's recommendation:The Calm App (Free plan or$69.99/yr)
*Janet's recommendation: Insight Timer App (Free plan or $59.99/yr)
2. DO THE MOST IMPORTANT THING FIRST
There's a lot to be said for 'eating the frog'. Prioritizing what's most important and getting it done before anything else can set your entire day up for success. Resist the urge to tick smaller, less important tasks off your to-do list first and instead face what's really crucial and cross that baby right off!
*Janet's recommendation: Try a project management tool like Trello (plans range from free to $17.50/month)
3. SKINCARE FOR A LITTLE GLOW
*Diana's recommendation:Kora Organics Turmeric Brightening & Exfoliating Mask (3.38 oz $50)
4. DON'T SKIP YOUR WORKOUT
No matter what your workout of choice, it's so important to not let this habit slip during the holidays! Whether you prefer walking, jogging, yoga, or a strength-training session at the gym, keeping a habit of whatever gets you moving is imperative to maintain good mental health during life's busy times.
*Diana's recommendation:I love these online courses from Daily OM ($19-$55 per course) in addition to strength-training sessions at the gym!
5. LET THERE BE LIGHT!
Getting some sunlight first thing in the morning is scientifically proven to increase energy levels throughout the day and improve overall wellbeing. Getting 10-15 minutes of natural light upon waking up increases serotonin levels and even helps us sleep better at night. If you aren't able to get outside, opt for a sunlight simulation lamp.
*Diana's recommendation:This video from Andrew Huberman gives an in-depth look at the importance of getting some natural light in the morning.
We hope you enjoyed this list and that you prioritize some nourishing 'you time' this holiday season!
