The holiday season is always a joyous time at The Sinclair, but we also know it can be a stressful season as the rush of gift-shopping and holiday party-hopping can become overwhelming. With this in mind, it’s important to tend to one’s inner world with quality self-care and deliberate times of rest. Here are a few ways you can find rest during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season.
Power down your devices during the holidays.
One of the most common stressors in the 21st century is technology. We use it for work and for play as it’s made its way into nearly every aspect of our lives. With notifications constantly pinging, it’s easy to see why our phones and laptops cause us so much unrest. Try powering down your devices while you spend time with family and friends over the holidays. You may find that it’s easier to be present with the ones you love.
With a few days off from work, it’s the perfect time to catch up on your shut eye.
After you’ve powered down your electronics, you may find that you’re able to get even better sleep as science has shown that the blue light emitted from screens can interfere with the sleep cycle. Use your vacation time to go to bed early and sleep in late. Don’t worry, work and the daily demands of life will still be there when you get up and you’ll have even more energy to tackle them.
Get a workout in at The Sinclair’s fitness club.
Rid yourself of holiday stress by going for a run on one of the treadmills or biking it out on a bike. Our fitness club is packed with everything you need to get an indoor workout in during the winter months. Hide away in The Sinclair yoga studio and do a restorative flow to calm any negative feelings that may come with the colder weather.
How will you find rest during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season? We hope these ideas inspire you to take time to not only enjoy your loved ones this season, but to practice self-care and tend to your inner world.
