2021 Holiday Self-Care Guide from Your Favorite Hair Salon in Miami
Thanksgiving, Hanukah, Christmas, Kwanza, and New Year’s Eve…yes, it’s that time of the year again, believe it or not! The holiday season is a time of giving, gratitude, great food, parties, and family gatherings. While the holidays are undeniably festive and fun, they can also be exhausting! To play the long game, it’s important to dedicate time throughout the month to self-care, so you don’t burn out before the ball drop. Paris Claire Salon in Coral Gables, Miami, has you covered with six self-care tips to keep yourself strong and sparkling this holiday season.
It’s Ok to Say No
You don’t have to say yes to every invitation that is mailed your way. In fact, don’t say yes to everything! You’ll only dampen your holiday glee by spreading yourself too thinly. The holidays shouldn’t feel like one hefty, never-ending obligation. Holiday season or not, a big part of self-care is learning it’s ok to say no.
Always Say Yes to Water
Wine, champagne, craft beers, eggnog, and holiday punches…December is usually a boozier than average month. Dehydration leads to hangovers, lackluster hair, parched-looking skin, and an unhappy digestive system. Do yourself a favor and make sure you drink at least eight glasses (64 ounces) of water every single day from this day out!
Mind Your ZZZs
You can’t possibly be your best festive self without ample shut-eye every night. To ensure the best rest, try and hop into bed around the same time every night and eliminate blue light (from your devices) at least an hour before hitting the hay.
Clean Up Your Daily Diet
The holidays are not necessarily a calorie-light and ultra-healthy time of the time. But that’s ok, though—homemade apple crisp, sweet potato casserole, whipped cream, dressing, and champagne are worth it! However, in between gatherings, parties, and cookie exchanges, amp up your plant intake. If you aren’t already full-on plant-based, this is a great time of the year to try it out between festivities. Eating light, clean, and green is much easier on the body in terms of digestion and provides an extra boost of antioxidants and powerhouse nutrients to keep you healthy and vibrant all season long.
Book an Appointment at Paris Claire Salon
The ultimate self-love, self-care gift to yourself is an appointment at Paris Claire Salon in Coral Gables, Miami. Come in for a cut, a fresh color, an entirely new style, an updo, a manicure, a custom-curated line of haircare products, or maybe all the above!
Acknowledge Your Blessings Daily
Gratitude is the attitude of the season! Taking a few moments every day to acknowledge what you're thankful for is a practice worth carrying on past the holiday season. Practicing gratitude has been shown to improve your happiness level by at least 25%, boost self-esteem, improve relationships, promote better sleep, shield you from negativity, and enhance the law of attraction.
We’ll get the gratitude ball rolling! We are grateful for each and every one of you! Thank you for your loyalty, trust, and friendship. Thank you for supporting what we love to do most!
December might be the season of giving, but don’t forget to give yourself some necessary self-care and self-love!
