I think I have a hangover. No, not from alcohol, I chose to eat my calories this week. I have a love hangover. Even if you are single over the holidays, the time with friends and family can be overwhelmingly filling. Being surrounded by people who love and care about you, exchanging gifts, and sharing many (overly indulgent) meals together is an amazing gift of the holiday season.
The tough part are the days after. Like me, I'm sure you want that full of love feeling all year round! Who wouldn't?
So this week I am going to nurse my hangover with self love. What does that look like? Glad you asked!
My hangover prescription: - Move your body daily - I don't know about you, but I am nearing a sugar overdose with my mom's cookies. My goal is to move every day. Not just because I want to fit in my jeans, but because working out is the most natural mood booster. Even walking 30 minutes a day can change everything.
- Gratitude journalling - I've been slacking on this, and during a season where there is SO much to be grateful for! Instead of focusing on what I don't have, I'm going to use one of my Christmas gifts (thank you Bex!), to reflect on all of my blessings. Every day.
- Be compassionate - I'm always talking about compassion for others, but it starts with us. Understand that it's ok to be bummed out on occasion. Don't beat yourself up for past choices. Give yourself a break, and be as loving to YOU as you are your best friend.
- Stay hopeful - I know that my life is meant to be amazing, and filled with amazing people. Stay hopeful that God is conspiring in your favor. It may not happen on demand or along your timeline, but it WILL happen.
Sending you so much love!
