Tis' the season for self-care

Feeling a little overwhelmed lately?

Well, you are not alone in this. As we get into one of the busiest seasons of the year, we tend to forgo self-care needs so as to fulfil our bottom lines and task lists. Obligations and crammed schedules overtake our self-care time slots and we are barely left with any time to recharge.

At this point in time, you might be going “Does this really matter? I mean, why should I do such trivial tasks given that this gifting rush time is an imperative boost to my sales and business?” True, the holiday season is the final event of the year for businesses to make their biggest and best push. Missing this opportune moment would definitely leave a significant dent on your sales. However, while your self-care time takes a step back, it would be dangerous to totally forget about it.

Even the best race cars require a pit-stop, so what more a weak human like us? To minimise a full-on breakdown, we have to take care of ourselves, even if that means forcing a ‘me-time appointment’ during your busy workday.


Here are a few ideas on how to spend your extra two minutes or hours:

  1. Close your eyes and do a quick deep-breathing exercise. (two to five minutes)
  2. Grab a pen and paper, then write down 3 good things that happened to you today. (two to five minutes)
  3. Call your favourite person and catch up with them. (five minutes)
  4. Diffuse some essential oils in your space. (Ten to thirty minutes)
  5. Read a book that you feel like reading, be it cause of the title or even genre. (fifteen to thirty minutes)
  6. Do a DIY spa at the comfort of your home, be it painting your nails or putting on face masks. (thirty minutes to one hour)
  7. Cook yourself a full meal. (one hour)
  8. Nature therapy including a walk in the park. (one to one and a half hours)
  9. Clean out your closet. (two hours)
  10. Indulge in a spa package. (two hours)


Remember that this list is not exhaustive, and are just some of the top things easily done with just two minutes to two hours of your day. If you are up for it, you could even go for a full day of self-care, which is sure to rejuvenate your tired soul, making you ready to tackle the avalanche of this holiday season.
