Step away from the tinsel tornado and use this as your reminder to make time for you amidst the holiday craziness. Here is your ultimate Christmas escape guide. 

The Great Christmas Escape

  • Find Your Cozy Corner: Identify a spot in your home that feels calming and cozy. It could be a favorite chair, a nook with soft cushions, or even a blanket fort.
  • Declare It Your Haven: Make it known that this space is your personal holiday haven. Let your family or housemates know that when you're there, you're taking a break to relax and recharge.
  • Judgment-Free Zone: This is your space to do whatever brings you joy and calm—whether it's reading a book, sipping a warm drink, or simply sitting in silence. No judgments, no obligations.

In essence, it's a deliberate act of creating a small sanctuary for yourself amid the holiday hustle. It's about taking a pause, even if it's just for a few minutes, to center yourself and find a bit of serenity.

DIY Calm in 3, 2, 1!

3 steps to make sure you find some calm: 

  • Grab a cup of tea (or hot choc, REMEMBER no judgment here)
  • Close your eyes, take a deep breath, and visualize a serene snowy landscape
  • Bonus points if you can do this while wrapped up like a pig in a blanket!

Hark the sound of silence!

Find a few seconds where you can shut away the noise and clear your mind, being overwhelmed is totally understandable and sometimes all it takes is to...

  • Sneak away to a room, close the door, and enjoy the blissful sound of silence.

If you're feeling adventurous, put on noise-canceling headphones and cue up your favorite calming tunes!

Rock around the Christmas tree!

It's important but sometimes tricky to remember the joy that the holidays should bring for many, so even if you are feeling low... 

  • Dim the lights, put on your coziest socks, and have a dance party.

Bonus if you throw in some interpretive dance moves to express your feelings about holiday stress!

When all else fails - Netflix!

The break between Christmas and New Year can be a great time to properly catch up and recharge - a day with no plans!? Bliss! 

  • Unleash your inner couch potato and have a movie or TV show marathon, Christmas films are the ultimate cheesy feel-good watches!
  • Snuggled up in your festive PJs, of course!

Remember, it's okay to press pause on the yuletide madness and gift yourself a moment of tranquillity. And when the need for a wellness fix arises, Grace and Gravity Studio will be here, ready to help you kick off your socks and find your zen. Until then, sprinkle a little calm into your holidays, because, well, you've earned it!

Wishing you peace, joy, and a sprinkle of serenity this festive season!
