5 Ways To Maintain Your Sanity This Christmas

Posted on December 23, 2021 by Melanie Brown

Christmas can be an amazing time. 

It's a time to be with friends and family, however, it can be pretty exhausting. You want to have the most perfect Christmas and run yourself ragged in your attempt to please everyone.

However, you have to remember that Christmas is for you too. It's a time that you should also be enjoying.

Here are 5 simple ways to maintain your sanity during the festive season which will enable you to have an amazing Christmas.

1. Take a nap

Take 30 minutes out for a quiet nap.

This gives you a chance to recharge your batteries.

It’s going to be a busy day and you risk burn out. Turn off all distractions and tell people that you are going to take time out for a nap. This will ensure that they do not disturb you and you get an uninterrupted nap time.


2, Go outside and exercise

It's important to move and get the circulation going.

You might want to sit on the couch and watch your favourite movies whilst snacking on some Christmas delight, but you have to keep moving. It's good for burning up those extra calories as well as keeping your mind active.




Put together your own personal toolbox which you can resort to when you are in need of some special 'me time'. Pamper yourself with a face mask, a bar of chocolate, flavoured lip balm - things that make you feel good. They will help to enhance your mood and make you feel special.


4. Celebrate you

You are amazing and you need to remember this. You have overcome so much to get through the year. So be grateful for being the unique special individual that you are.



5. Bath

Relax with your favourite handmade bath bomb or natural soap. If they are fragranced with an essential oil, they will enhance your mood and leave you feeling refreshed and relaxed. A warm bath will relax and soothe your muscles.

In summary, enjoy your Christmas but when it gets stressful, take a step back and remember to put yourself first. You are a priority so use these simple steps.
