Thanksgiving is only a couple of days away, and many of us are likely getting ready to travel back home in order to be with friends and family for the holiday. Even though there’s a lot to be thankful for, sometimes it’s hard not to let the stress of the preparations rain on our gratitude parade. Our advice? Take the time to pamper yourself this Thanksgiving season, because a little self-directed gratitude can make you better able to share your appreciation for others, too! Here are a couple of ways you can treat yourself right now.
Breath is something we almost always take for granted, but it feels so good to take a couple of moments and really focus on breathing fully and deeply. It’s like pressing a reset button on your body, and you’ll return to your day feeling calm and revitalized--a much better outlook for tackling the holidays!
If you’re like most people in North America, you’re carrying stress and tension in your body 24/7, and the only reason why you don’t notice it is because you’ve gotten used to it. Think about your jaw for a second. Is it relaxed, or is it clenched? How about your forehead? Your shoulders? A full-body stretch routine is heavenly, and you can find a load of them online!
Lasso one of your nearest and dearest--be they a partner, parent, child, sibling, friend, pet...whatever--and engage in some uninterrupted, mutually-beneficial snuggling. Physical contact is a crazy-effective pick-me-up, and comfy too!
Here at Donna Bella, we firmly believe that the way you dress (and express!) yourself sets the stage for how you feel about yourself. So, by that logic, one great way to pamper yourself right now is to pretty yourself up like you’re about to attend some big event. Of course, you don’t actually need to have an event lined up--personal time can be an event in itself, like a way of demonstrating that you’re always worthy of wearing those fancy earrings or those only-on-occasion shoes. Donna Bella extensions are a great way of installing some glam into your everyday life, and you’ll carry the resulting confidence and satisfaction with you everywhere you go.
Anticipation is super motivating, and we have some big deals coming up that you can start looking forward to right now! Get ready for Donna Bella’s upcoming Black Friday and Cyber Monday events by downloading our mobile app, subscribing to mobile rewards, and following us on social media so you can be included in all of our social rewards. If you want to be extra prepared, you can also start researching the products you want to purchase in advance, then add them to your shopping cart before the event so you can proceed immediately to checkout once it starts! It’ll be the perfect time to invest in yourself and your business (at a discount!).
We’re ramping up for a whole holiday season of pampering--from Thanksgiving, to Black Friday, and right through to the end of the year (and the beginning of the New Year, too). We hope you’ll check in often and join us for the ride! Thank you for being a Donna Bella reader, customer, and/or stylist! We appreciate you and all that you do!
