A little something from me… to me

We love that Christmas is a time for giving, but in the midst of all the Yuletide cheer, we sometimes forget to take a moment to nurture our own wellbeing and value life’s small joys. With a bit of help from Etsy, we select a few simple seasonal surprises just for you, to keep you jingling all the way into the new year

in partnership with Etsy

Getting caught up in the flurry of festive activity at this time of year is very easy. There’s often so much to do, a house to prepare, decorations to put up, gifts to buy and meals to cook. Our focus is admirably so much on others – those less fortunate as well as our loved ones – that we promptly forget to look after ourselves. When you’re busy, it’s especially important to find time in the day to breathe, relax and pay attention to your own wellbeing.

Top up the well and you can keep giving in that wonderful Christmas atmosphere of goodwill. It needn’t be a luxury, in fact it should be part of your daily routine. You might like to light your favourite candle, and sit and enjoy the warm scent. Or soak in a deep bath and use a special natural scrub. Even if it feels indulgent to book in time with yourself, allow space for it and you’ll quickly feel the benefits on your mood and your reactions to everyday things. You will find yourself gently thanking the universe for the spectacular coating of frost in the morning or the delicate flavours in your co€ ee.

About Psychologies

This month we’re exploring how to truly have a happy Christmas. If you don’t have any religious beliefs, the holidays can be rather become a meaningless glut of overconsumption and commercialism, but this issue will help you explore how to create a different experience for you, your friends and family this year. And often it’s about kindness. Our interview with June Sapong explores how we can use kindness in our everyday lives to make the world a better place. One of our own relays her experience of finding the bravery and courage to start dating again. When a relationship goes sour, it’s normal to lick your wounds for a bit but how do we begin to heal and have the courage to be vulnerable and get back out there again? Ellen Tout takes us on that journey. Natalie Hourihan explores ‘creativism’ with author and entrepreneur Orna Ross and shows us how to connect with our ‘creative intelligence’ so we can design a life that works for us on our terms. The good news we all have access to this intelligence, we just need to know how to harness it!
