Progressions Salon Spa Store - Salon Bethesda, MD

Give back to yourself this season

Have you spent the last few weeks running frantically from one event to the next? Are you still checking off a mile-long list of holiday to-dos? Take a deep breath. Relax your shoulders. Focus your thoughts on you.

During this intensely busy time of year, it’s easy to forget to give back to yourself. We know—we’re guilty of it, too!

But we firmly believe self-love is the best love, and this time of year, so much more time than usual is spent thinking and giving to others, that we can often forget about replenishing ourselves.

Find Your Inner Peace

To find the joy in giving throughout the holiday season, it’s important to start with yourself.

If you’ve never practiced meditation, we recommend you try it out for just a few minutes a day. While it’s important to practice year round, meditation is especially helpful during the holidays when you’re rushing from one place to the next, sitting in traffic and traveling more than usual.

Meditating calms the nervous system and allows the mind to rest, giving us the gift of a few moments where we are not going and doing, but rather just being.

When you practice meditation, your mind rests by not indulging in thought, but in space. It also decreases your heart rate and sends a message to the nervous system that everything is ok.

And it’s a natural drug—practicing meditation releases serotonin and dopamine, taking you to a happy place—without holiday cookies and cocktails.

So whether you use an app or a video to guide you, or simply sit in silence for a few sacred moments, you’ll feel calm, relaxed and ready to take on the holidays.

During this busy season, remember, by giving a little to yourself, you’ll be able to give your best to those you love. So treat yourself to a small indulgence or relaxation time to refresh and renew your spirit of giving.

  3. May I just say what a relief to find an individual who really
    understands what they’re talking about on the web.
    You actually understand how to bring an issue to light and make
    it important. A lot more people have to read this and understand this side of your story.
    I was surprised you are not more popular since you
    surely possess the gift.

  4. After looking at a number of the blog articles on your site,
    I seriously appreciate your technique of blogging.
    I saved it to my bookmark site list and will be checking back in the
    near future. Take a look at my web site too and tell me
    your opinion.

  5. Hi! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that would be ok.
    I’m absolutely enjoying your blog and look forward
    to new updates.

  6. Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have
    any trouble with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and
    I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no backup.
    Do you have any methods to protect against hackers?

  7. This is the perfect site for everyone who wishes to find out about this topic.
    You know a whole lot its almost hard to argue with you (not
    that I actually will need to…HaHa). You certainly put a fresh spin on a
    topic which has been written about for ages.
    Wonderful stuff, just great!
