Self-Care Resolutions and Decompressing from Holiday Stress

By Pamela Gail

If you’re like me, you make New Year’s Resolutions every year but never follow through. With the end of 2023 approaching and holiday stress at its height, now is a good time to start decompressing and finding time for self-care. Self-care is something we all need and should be a focus each month, not just during stressful times. If self-care becomes a habit, it will be easier to make time for it during the busiest times of the year.
Decompressing from holiday stress is difficult for me because there is always so much to do this time of year, and I feel like taking time for myself will only put me further behind. The opposite is actually true. When I set that time aside and follow through on self-care, I get more done because I am refreshed and more focused when I go back to my to-do list.
Often, we look at self-care as being selfish. The reality is if we don’t take care of ourselves, then we can’t be fully present for those who depend on us. Below are some self-care ideas that you can start now and keep in 2024. Pick the ones that work best for you but make a point to do something for yourself every day, even if it’s only for ten minutes.

More People Time

Spend time with friends, whether it’s a five-minute phone call, a meeting for a quick drink after work, a Zoom happy hour, or a dinner out. Time with friends is important. We all need a break from work, home, and family sometimes.

Get Outside

Run through the neighborhood, stroll through a nearby park or simply sit on the porch. Being outside refreshes your mind and gives you a chance to recharge.

Read More

Read something every day. Take a few minutes to read an article, a chapter in a book, a comic book, a poem, or even the back of a cereal box! It can be educational or just for fun, but reading is a great way to take time for yourself and relax your mind.
