Let’s be real, the holidays can be stressful for everyone. Add in being in the midst of a global pandemic, and it’s a whole new level. Some of you may be planning on traveling for the holidays like Buddy the Elf, while others plan on staying home Kevin McCallister style.
No matter how you plan to celebrate the holidays this year, it is important to recognize your own need for self-care and to share that gift with your loved ones.
Self-care is very important during all times of the year, but when you are in moments of high stress, it should be a priority.
”You cannot fill other’s cups if yours is empty''
is how I like to think about it. If you’re not sure where to start in your self-care journey, my personal favorite way to de-stress is getting comfortable with a Vital You bath bomb in a hot bath, a good book, and a tasty beverage. There’s no doubt that 2020 has been a trying year, but this has helped to create some sense of normalcy in my life. It’s become my ritual on particularly stressful days. When I am anxious about what I am seeing on the news, losing my job because of the pandemic, or feeling lonely because of social distancing.
A bath with a CBD and botanicals seems to literally wash my worries away so that I can have a moment where the year of 2020 seemingly doesn’t exist.
Vital You products were formulated with healing in mind and their team has done a fantastic job with that. Each product is specifically formulated for a purpose - mental clarity, heart opening, easing tension, bringing joy - and the ingredients are hand-picked to do just that. It can be hard to explain without experiencing it yourself so just trust me, you will absolutely experience great relief.
Now, I know a bath isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. Vital You can help you incorporate self-care into your daily life without stepping foot into a bathtub.
Some of my favorite Vital You products besides the bath bombs are the Goddess line and the toner mists. After your bath or shower, you can lather the luxurious Goddess Body Butter on your body, or use the Goddess Face Mask to soothe irritated skin. In these moments I recommend checking in with yourself and your body. Maybe you feel you don’t have the time for that, no problem. Say you’re rushing through the airport and need a little pick me up, spritz the ZEN Toner Mist on your face. The lavender, chamomile, and peppermint infused with the CBD will do wonders for your skin and your nerves. Rub some Cherished Skin Salve on your hands to keep them soft after constant COVID washing or using hand sanitizer.
These are all quick and easy ways to show some love for yourself and your body. I personally keep both in my purse as an on-the-go necessity.
When you are shopping for holiday gifts for your loved ones, there is nothing better than the gift of self-care. During these unprecedented times we are in, there is nothing more important than one’s well-being. With so many businesses struggling right now, it is also important to shop local. Since money is tight right now, I would much rather spend it supporting a business that I want to see succeed. Shopping local not only provides jobs and supports the local economy, but it is also much more personal than purchasing a mass-produced item at a chain store. Fun fact - each bath bomb from Vital You is handcrafted in small batches and includes a handwritten note, which is a nice personal, loving touch during this isolating time. If you are not sure what to choose as a gift, I would suggest the limited edition holiday bath bombs - Joy and Conifer. They also have some amazing bundle deals available, as well as create your own bundles, that would make fantastic gifts.
They will even wrap them up real pretty for you!
Self-care with Vital You is the gift that keeps on giving. I hope you have a safe and happy holiday season!
