It’s that time of year. Of joy & good cheer. It’s simply wonderful! Except for one thing. It stresses you out.
With all the shopping, decorating, and partying, how on earth is a beautiful, smart, fabulous woman (or man) like you to do?
Take a deep breath in and a long exhale out. The following list of tips and ideas will offer you relief and direction during the holiday season. So relax, take notes if you’d like, cozy up with a hot or sparkling beverage, and enjoy!
Look & Feel Great
When you look good, you feel good. And when you feel good, you guessed it, you look good! Now you know it begins with your mindset. So we’ll begin there.
Start the day with a positive attitude. Whether it’s after you brush your teeth or your hair, look in the mirror and say, “I feel great! Today is going to be a wonderful day.” Take a deep breath in and believe it as you exhale!
Makeup & Clothes
Take a look in your wardrobe and pull out that special outfit you’ve been holding onto for a special occasion. That day is today!
Let yourself sparkle with a glittery brooch and dangling earrings. You can do the same with makeup. A little glimmer is good for glamour. Brighten those lips with shiny gloss, and paint those nails red!
Your body is going to look great with plenty of exercise. Start the day with a few stretches to wake it up. Go for a walk before, during, and after work. Go to the gym. Don’t belong to one yet? Consider joining. Try them all out first and pick the one that suits you. What’s most important is to get moving.
I’m a firm believer in this form of exercise. It not only trains your body, but your mind. There are a variety of styles. As you lengthen, you strengthen.
