Two Minutes Just for You

Dear Friends,

Here we are with just a week until Christmas. The mid-night editor is working over time. The holidays are jam packed with things to do and people to see. Lots of times we are just so busy that we don’t even take a few minutes for ourselves. This is why our December habit is to pamper yourself.

I can hear you now! I don’t have time to pamper myself! Those words, I don’t have time are your first clue that the stress level is starting to build. When you hear those words come out of your mouth or scroll¬†pass that mental TV screen in your brain; I want you to stop whatever you are doing and realize that those words are a form of perfectionism. Set a timer for 2 minutes and do something for yourself.

There you go again with that perfectionism! “What can I do in two minutes to pamper myself! That isn’t enough time to do anything!” OH YES IT IS!

I am going to give you a little list to get you feeling special!

1. File your fingernails
2. Drink a glass of water
3. Eat a healthy snack
4. Freshen your make up and smile at yourself in the mirror
5. Make a cup of tea or my favorite Cafe Mocha
6. Pick up a magazine and read or look at the pictures
7. Listen to your favorite CD
8. Close your eyes and breathe slowly and deep
9. Open up your personal journal and write
10. Make a list of things you are thankful for
11. Pet your cat or dog

It is the act of stopping the negative perfectionist thinking that helps to defuse the stress! The icing on the cake is the pampering action that takes care of you! This simple little action is going to help relieve your stress. Less stress means you are happier!

All that any of us have ever wanted is just to feel loved! You find us because you are searching for a way to get your home in order. You never dreamed that Finally Loving Yourself is the key that opens the lock that has kept you hidden away from the simple joys of life.
