During chaotic times, we tend to neglect ourselves, even when we don’t mean to do so. Practicing self-care during stressful times is essential for our health.

This time of year is always so chaotic and stressful — we may picture ourselves cuddled up by a fire with a warm cup of hot cocoa and watching Hallmark movies — sometimes it doesn’t always pan out that way. Today, I’m sharing a few ways you can practice self-care during stressful times of the year.

Self-Care During Stressful Times

Let Go of Your Perfectionism 

Nothing will ever be perfect — it’s impossible. So learn to be okay with that and embrace the good enough. There is no need to add extra stress. Focus on what DOES matter…your family, your happiness, your sanity.

Prioritize Yourself

It’s okay to take a day or an evening to yourself and step away from the chaos. Treat yourself to a bath, a pedicure, or wrap yourself up in your favorite hoodie or sweatshirt and watch a movie that will relax you.

It’s Okay to Say No

If something doesn’t give you joy, and it’s only going to overwhelm you, say no. Don’t put yourself under that pressure just to make someone else’s life easier. Harsh, I know. But if you don’t take care of yourself, no one else will.

Ask For Help

On that note, if you are feeling like you’ve taken on too much, ask for help. Don’t take it as defeat, or a fail, everyone needs help but not everyone asks for it. Think of yourself, listen to your body and delegate.

Don’t Ditch Your Normal Routine

If you are the type of person that has a set routine every single day and can’t miss your evening walk, etc. Don’t ditch it just because you’re too busy. These are things that help us stay on track, perhaps veering off of your routine will only add extra stress. Whatever your routine is, stick to it — especially if they contribute to your well-being.

Step Away From Tough Situations

If there’s tension between certain family members or going to the mall during a weekend full of sales gives you anxiety, step away…don’t go. Take that extra time to go on a walk (these have been my go-to sneakers lately, so easy to slip-on and go) check off a few more things off your list or just relax!
