December bingo board: 24 ways to prioritize self-care during the holidays

‘Tis the season to be busy. And amid the hustle, many of us put off self-care until after the holidays.

But let’s face it: It’s hard to be merry if you’re exhausted. 

That’s why we’re making the case for prioritizing self-care during the holiday season and beyond. Setting aside time to read, put together a puzzle, or lounge in your pajamas can give you more energy and clarity for what you’re looking forward to most this season. 

Want to join us? Here are some tips to help you make time for self-care during the holidays, as well as 24 of our recommendations to help you prioritize holiday wellness via our December Wellness Bingo board. 

Making time for self-care during the holidays

During the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, it’s crucial to prioritize self-care and ensure you’re giving yourself the time and attention you deserve. So, how can you do that amidst all the festivities? Here are our best holiday wellness tips: 

Schedule self-care activities in your calendar

Treat holiday self-care as a non-negotiable commitment by scheduling activities in your calendar. This approach ensures that you have dedicated time for activities that promote relaxation and mental well-being, such as meditation, yoga, journaling, or any of the 24 activities on our December Bingo board.

Create a daily self-care routine

Establishing a daily self-care routine can help you stay grounded and focused during the holiday season. So take the time to develop a set of self-care practices that resonate with you, such as deep breathing exercises, gratitude journaling, or engaging in creative activities. 

Engage in self-care activities with friends or family

Sharing self-care experiences with friends or family can be a fun and meaningful way to connect with loved ones during the holiday season. (Because isn’t that what it’s all about?)

By engaging in self-care activities together, you can promote a supportive environment that encourages relaxation, mindfulness, and overall well-being.
