Well, it’s officially the Christmas season, and everything festive is on peoples’ minds.
It certainly is a time when we start to think about how we share gifts with others and perhaps connect with family members who we haven’t seen in a while.
However, I would like to propose, for today, a day off from Christmas…a selfish Christmas moment, if you will. I suggest that today, you give yourself an early Christmas present - an indulgence. Reward yourself for everything you’ve done in the year and for well… just being the wonderful, unique you!
Here’s some suggestions for today’s, early Christmas present:
Enjoy a magazine and a coffee in peace and quiet for half an hour
Run a hot bath with a good book and a relaxing bath foam / candle
Book a meal out
Savour a nice glass of wine
Listen to a favourite music album
Watch a movie
Go for a long walk
Organise an evening out with friends
Treat yourself to your favourite cake / chocolate etc…
Go to a coffee shop and relax for a while with your favourite drink
Get a takeaway and take the night off cooking
Take a day off work just because!
Spend time with a friend
Have a beauty treatment
Have your nails done
Read a book
Have an early night
Get flowers / a plant for your home
Go and have a chat with a work colleague and not talk about work
My treat? Well, early this morning as I left the house to work, I lingered in a local park and gazed up in the sky at the shining spotlight of Venus. And as an additional indulgence; I can see a well-earned mince pie being added to the list.
Whatever you choose - enjoy… and wish yourself a Merry Christmas!
