No matter where you fall on the spectrum of belief – there’s something undeniably captivating about the season of Yuletide joy. From carefully selected gifts to amplified community outreach efforts, this bedazzled season of red and green can uplift your heart and your spirit, if you let it – and for that we give thanks.
But we here at Beauty Coach know that – for some – the holiday’s lack luster. So we’ve rounded up a few things that we think you should put on your to-do list. We hope that you’ll find them uplifting! And you never know – you just might catch the spirit of the season in the process.
Be charitable. Whether you’re alive with the spirit of the holidays, or simply counting the days until the season comes to an end, we find that donating our resources can be uplifting. Start by doing a little bit of research, and pick a cause whose mission resonates with you. In many cases, donations of all kinds are accepted, such as time, money, or unused household items.
Make gift-worthy treats. Nothing says holly-jolly quite like a plate of sweets. And whether you’re vegan, Paleo, or gluten-free, when it comes to baking holiday treats, the Internet is overflowing with options. So put on a gorgeous apron, such as this 100% cotton version from Alternative Threads, and bake up some joy!
Embellish your nails. Let’s be clear: We are in no way suggesting that you adorn your nails in various shades of red and green. But getting a chic yet festive manicure can help to imbue the season with joy. Try enhancing your tips with a sweet, toffee nut latte inspired hue. We like Smith & Cult Nailed Lacquer in Doe My Dear, and for the perfect finishing touch, we’ll add a cheerful, gold-flecked accent nail on each hand.
Tackle your to-do list – and pamper your skin. If all else fails, tune in to your favorite holiday-inspired station, and get busy decking the halls: Trim the tree, wrap up gifts and write out those holiday cards! Once you’ve made your list and checked it twice, put up your feet, turn on a festive film, and treat yourself to a decadent, at-home mask. For a youthful, radiant glow, we like Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Mask Pure Luxury Lift & Firm Mask.
Regardless of your mindset, getting into the spirit can be easy, and fun. So seize the moment – and get busy making memories that will last a lifetime.
