Amid all the celebration, make time for you.
At Soft Surroundings we anticipate the holiday season with child-like delight. Beginning with the marvelous holiday of Thanksgiving, we enjoy the fellowship of family and friends, the warmth of togetherness, and come December, sharing gifts and delights with those we love and hold dear to our hearts. We all have so much to be thankful for. As women who naturally like to take care of others in our lives, it’s easy to forget that we should also be thankful for “us.” Like others bless us, we in turn are a blessing to someone else. In the midst of all the wonderful celebrations this season, let us not forget to make time for ourselves – time to renew, recharge and restore – so that we can continue to bless those we love.
Renew simply means to “make like new, restore to freshness or vigor.” The holidays can be taxing and stressful even for the most seasoned of us, so ensuring a good night’s sleep is one important way to feel fresh the next day. Help yourself drift off to sleep each night with relaxing bedding, such as silk pillowcases and silk comforters. Another favorite with our customers for peaceful slumber is the popular Beauty Sleep™ drink. This product is a unique blend of vitamins and minerals, age-defying herbs, antioxidants and Sensara™. But you don’t have to just take our word for it – we encourage you to read our customers’ inspiring testimonials.
It’s been an exhausting day of errands and shopping, and although it’s only 3 PM, you are ready for bed! Sound familiar? While we definitely endorse that afternoon nap, other wonderful ways to recharge during the day can be as simple as giving yourself a quick mud mask in a candlelight bathroom. Take those few precious minutes for yourself and indulge in a mini-spa, like one provided by our Borghese Illuminare Il Corpo spa collection – an unbelievable value at only $49. We promise you will emerge feeling recharged and ready for the evening’s activities.
Restore mental balance with a peaceful, serene environment. Most of us are quick to acknowledge we need to take care of our physical needs, but we too often neglect our mental well-being. Take time to clear your mind of “to-do” lists, sink into into your favorite chair, and pour that glass of wine or open that book you’ve been wanting to read. With soft jazz playing in the background and the fire-flicker of holiday candles (our personal favorite is the Nest Holiday Candle Collection) , you can create your own little piece of heaven, even before those next guests arrive.
