The Importance of Taking Time for Yourself
Published: 12/09/2012

The holidays can bring joy, comfort and peace – but for some, it can also bring unhealthy stress. Use the Sunday Weekend Tips throughout this month for simple ways to de-stress that everyone can use, courtesy of Dr. Weil’s website

With the holidays fast approaching, you may already be feeling the effects of all the planning and partying. To stay balanced, relaxed and calm, it’s necessary every so often to regroup and decompress. Read a book, start an art project, work in the garden or treat yourself to a massage.

If you find that the demands on your time are overwhelming, don’t be afraid to politely say "no" when someone asks you to do something. Learn your limits. You can’t do it all and you shouldn’t feel guilty about it. Be a little selfish once in a while by scheduling "me time" – it will help keep you in touch with yourself during the season ahead.
