The Most Happiest Season of All Includes Giving to Yourself
- Posted on: Dec 15 2019
Many holiday songs depict the current season as the most wonderful time of the year. This is true in many ways. Even in our area, where the weather is consistently pretty wonderful, there is an air of joy. We feel more festive and connected to those we love. On the flip side of the holiday season, we can see where some situations can create stress. We’re reserving a decent amount of spending for gifts, and we may find ourselves missing someone who is no longer with us. For some, even the expansion of social obligations can feel somewhat stressful. Throughout all of this, it can be easy to forget the immense benefit of some TLC directed toward Self.
The Psychology of Giving
Yes, there are literal psychological aspects to the act of giving. When we give, the neuropathways of pleasure in the brain light up. In this way, gift-giving is comparable to enjoying one of our favorite tasty treats. When it feels so good to give, you’d think we would inherently turn the tables now and then and give to ourselves. This can prove to be an enormous challenge, especially at this time of year. Of course, we aren’t suggesting that we leave others out to prioritize our own desires. What we’re saying is there is magic in balance. When we give both to others and ourselves, everyone wins. We have more joy, more energetic bandwidth, and far less risk of resentment.
Make a List, Check It Twice
When making out your holiday list, check it twice to ensure there is a little something special there for yourself. It doesn’t have to be outlandish. We’ve got several pampering treatments that may fit nicely both into your budget and your schedule. Consider gifting yourself with:
- A chemical peel or facial.
- Botox treatment to smooth those frown lines before the big holiday bash.
- Dermal fillers to eliminate undereye bags or to plump the lips.
- Sclerotherapy treatment to finally get rid of those spider veins.
- Hydrafacial treatment for ultra-nourished skin.
