This Christmas, Be Nice To Yourself by: Amy Twain

It's Christmas season once again, and it's time for a breather since the past 11 months you've been working hard. It's the season to be merry and gift-giving. And speaking of gifts, you give your family, friends and loved ones gifts in the spirit of Christmas. 

But have you ever realized that you might be giving some gifts to others that you forgot to give one yourself? This holiday season; give yourself something effortless--the gift of being nice to yourself, what else? 

Think of some of the nice things to do for yourself. 

1) You can choose to live a healthy lifestyle by watching what you eat and that includes going easy on the junk food, or removing it completely off your system. Instead, just eat some healthful stuff like fruits and veggies (if you want your veggies tasty, bring some mayo dips to go with it). 

Then, drink more water as much as you can. If you want to be nice to yourself, you know that your health always comes first. 

2) Cheer yourself up--buy some flowers for yourself. Yes, you read it right--why wait for other people to buy your flowers? Any bunch of flowers brightens up someone's day, so don't forget yourself. Instead of waiting for others to cheer you up, you can have the initiative of having a quick fix-me-up. 

3) In connection with this, enjoy a spa day. Yes, this is the ultimate "me-time" wherein you get to pamper and relax yourself at the hands of the experts. 

There, it's just you, yourself, and well, the masseuse to bring you some rejuvenating glory. 

4) Maintain your journal. Now, you have more time off work and more time partying and relaxing, you can record all your activities in your journal. There, you can be yourself, uninhibited and revealing, you've all the liberty to edit, censor or disclose all your personal thoughts and feelings. 

In the end, you know the best Christmas gift is to be nice to yourself. 

Enjoy your happy holidays everyone!
