motivation of the month MAKE A LIST & CHECK IT TWICE
Between attending and hosting holiday parties, finding the perfect presents for all those on our lists and giving our homes a festive overhaul—not to mention bundling up in umpteen layers any time we have to leave the house—we often find that the most wonderful time of the year is also truly the most taxing. We get so focused on pleasing others this season that we can forget ourselves. So make yourself an Advent calendar of self-care and set aside a moment for “me” time every day. Whether it’s a list or a grab bag of goodies you love, make it effortless and achievable.
