More Than Just Treating Yoself: Self-Care Over The Holidays

#Treatyoself is not just a trendy hashtag; it’s our mantra at Omagi.

Self-care is so important! It combats stress; helps maintain healthy relationships; nourishes physical and mental wellness; increases productivity, and generates self-confidence.

Adopting self-care habits starts a positive feedback loop that leads to healthy benefits, which leads to more motivation to practice self-care, which leads to more healthy benefits … you get the picture.

Acts of self-care can be physical—exercise, deep breathing, getting a facial. They can be mindful—meditation, learning to say “No,” boosting your self-esteem with skin and hair treatments. They can be therapeutic—starting a journal, pre-planning positive activities for your days and weeks ahead.

The holiday season is traditionally a tough time to start developing good habits. We’ve put together some key dates coming up with our recommendations on self-care to practice on those days. #Sorrynotsorry: this is YOU TIME.

Nov. 11: Singles Day

Celebrate and nurture your fabulous single self! Gather single friends for a fun brunch. Do some shopping. Schedule a “Blow Out Before You Go Out” at Omagi and then hit the town.

Nov. 23: Black Friday

Planning to brave the crowds? This year, say #MerryChristmastoME. Make sure at least one of the items you’re willing to wait in line to snag is for YOU.

Nov. 24: Small Business Saturday

Connect with your community! Stroll through local shops, meet the owners, and shop with a purpose: to support the economy in your hometown. (So you know: Omagi is locally owned and we would looove to see you pop through our doors! #teamomagi )

Nov. 26: Cyber Monday

Shopping online is great, but you don’t want to stare at a screen all day. Balance out your cyber activities with a dose of nature—a walk in the woods, a picnic in the park, riding a bike.

Nov. 27: Giving Tuesday

Helping others is an amazing act of self-care. When you give your time, talents or money to a cause you care about, you will find it tremendously satisfying and fulfilling.
