Gift Yourself

While I get more pleasure out of giving (and the subsequent gift wrapping) to others, especially around the holidays, I will not deny a gift to myself if I see an item at a competitive price point that I can see becoming a staple. It is easy to become so focused on others’ needs that you lose mindfulness of yourself.

The holiday time can be so stressful, so in addition to a material splurge, give yourself a mental and emotional break, whether that be a spa day, yoga class, or fifteen minutes of meditation every morning. Lately, the fiancé and I have been waking up twenty minutes earlier to share a mug of coffee. While minimal, by waking up a bit earlier and changing my mornings, I have eliminated the rush and subsequent toll it takes on my mental state, effectively improving the remainder of my day.

But back to your material splurge –
