Do you deserve a break?

Most of us have seen a L’Oreal advert for beauty products. At the of each advert the celebrity declares “Because you’re worth it”. The implication is of course that you deserve to use such a great product because you too, are valuable. We laugh at the adverts and most of us don’t think twice about buying shampoo or moisturizer whether it’s L’Oreal or another brand. Unfortunately, although we think we are worth it when it comes to hair products the same does not always apply when it comes to taking time for ourselves.

 

In the lead up to Christmas it is common to feel overwhelmed with work, social engagements, family commitments and all the shopping and preparation that comes with them. We put pressure on ourselves to make everything wonderful and end up feeling tired and stressed. Often our solution is to work even harder to try and get yet more done. Overdoing things however can end up making us both ill and miserable. Difficult as it can be, what we actually need to do is let go of the need to control everything and take time to enjoy the festivities more!

 

This can be beneficial not simply on a physical level but emotionally too. Taking time to see appreciate friends or family you have not seen for a while, having some “you time” and slowing down a bit is good means less stress and arguments too! It can also help us see why other people need time off too.

 

Here at Spanish Wedding Planner it has been another rewarding and exhilarating year. We have loved each and everyone of the 2015 weddings we’ve organised and are already looking forward to an exciting and busy 2016. Before throwing ourselves into 2016 however we too need to recharge our batteries and spend time with our families. We are practising what we preach therefore and closing our offices between 18th December and 6th January for a proper holiday. We think we are worth it, and that you are too - so go on, enjoy the time off and return refreshed for 2016!

Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas and 2016 from all of us at Spanish Wedding Planner!
