With weeks of special meals, gift-giving, and gatherings ahead, this time of year holds a lot of activity. While giving thanks and celebration are wonderful traditions, sometimes this season can be so full of details and to-dos, we forget what it’s about. It can become overwhelming instead of nourishing. Since we’re all about bliss, we wanted to remind you to focus on what matters most this season.
Long after decorations are stored away, what we remember is how we felt. We recall moments of laughter and warmth that come from being present and connecting from the heart. Researchers at Harvard have shown that meaningful connection is proven to decrease stress and improve overall health. Meaningful social connection adds to longevity in the same ways that exercise, healthy diet, and restorative sleep do. Let this be the reason you worry less about finding the perfect gifts, and instead focus more on those you love.
As the holidays go into full swing, consider investing time in your most important relationships. This might mean taking time with specific friends or choosing activities that bring you the most happiness and nourishment. It’s okay to do less too—decluttering your holiday—so that you can slow down and truly enjoy.
We hope that the coming holiday season is filled with meaningful moments and that you arrive in the new year feeling nourished body, heart, and spirit.
If you need help remembering to slow down and soak in the moment, the team at Simply Blissed is here for you. We have some wonderful holiday specials and hope that you’ll come by to recline for a blissful service with us—and bring a friend!
