With the holidays approaching, it can be easy to lose sight of your health and wellness with all the hustle and bustle, and Christmas excitement. There are shopping lists and to-do lists, and Santa’s naughty and nice lists. Cooking, baking, gift-crafting, and present wrapping. Then we have cocktail parties, family gatherings, and office festivities. With everything going on under the mistletoe, life can get a little bit hectic and even stressful.

Time to take a breather!

That’s why we’ve put together this little holiday helper list of ways you can practice self-care—whatever that means to you—so you can chill out, indulge in some self-pampering, and celebrate yourself this season of self-love (aka masturbation)!

Importance of self-care through sexual wellness

Self-care can be anything from taking time out to relax, or Netflix and chill, to meditating, cleansing bath rituals, going to the spa, or a long walk in nature, and taking time to unplug and replenish your vitality.

Sexual wellness, including solo sex and romantic intimacy with your partner, are also ways you can indulge yourself, and your pleasure.

And, while you may think that sex and pleasure are a luxury, the truth is they help to improve your overall wellness on every level. Masturbation and orgasm help to relieve stress, boost your immune system, elevate your mood, relieve menstrual cramps, increase self-esteem, and lowers the risk of prostate cancer for prostate owners, among other amazing health and wellness benefits.

So, while you are checking off your self-care bucket list his holiday season, don’t forget the sensual delights that will recharge your joie de vivre and help you destress!

Making time for self-care during the holidays

That’s all fine and dandy, and sure I’d love to, but how does one even find the time? We hear you! Finding time for self-care is not easy. In fact, if you don’t make time for it, you will probably never “find” the time. Self-care has to be a non-negotiable part of your life that you make time for on a daily/weekly basis.

Here are ten great ways to make that happen:

  1. Schedule it in. Yes, like an appointment. You wouldn’t miss a doctor’s appointment, so self-care should be just as important. Block off one hour a day, or at least 15 minutes, to take a self-care break, and a few hours or even a whole day once a week. Imagine having a whole day every week to do all the things you love: sleep in, breakfast in bed, read a book, and just be lazy! Sounds like bliss!

  2. Set healthy boundaries for yourself. Learn that “No” is a whole sentence. Opt out of things that might be emotionally draining and don’t stretch yourself too thin. You can’t be everything for everybody, and remember, your needs are just as important as the needs of others. What’s that saying about putting on your own oxygen mask first?

  3. Try to get enough ZZZs. If you burn the candle at both ends, eventually it will lead to burn-out. Try to make an effort to get adequate sleep and recharge your batteries. Take power naps when you can throughout the day, which can be almost as effective if you can’t get a full night’s sleep.

  4. Meditate. Meditation has been shown to restore calm and inner peace. This is because your body produces less cortisol, which is linked to chronic stress. Even five minutes a day can create deeper relaxation and calm the body’s stress response.

  5. Stay hydrated. Yes, good old H20 is your friend, as it boosts your energy and flushes toxins out of the body. Drinking a sufficient amount of water may help to reduce depression and anxiety.

  6. Remember to breathe. Taking just a few minutes to step away and do some deep breathing exercises can make all the difference in the world between having a breakdown and being super Zen. It is like an amazing superpower you can use to protect yourself against the stresses of the holidays.

  7. Give and receive a hug! Hugs release oxytocin, the feel-good “cuddle” hormone which makes us feel happier and relieves stress. A good hug can also lower your blood pressure, lower anxiety, and boosts your heart health.

  8. Take time out from the family. While you may have to show up for the festivities, and it is important to spend time with family, during the holidays it can be a bit overwhelming. Slip away for a little “me” time when time allows! 😉 (Yes, we do mean self-pleasure here).

  9. Privacy. If you have kids, make sure to put a lock on that bedroom door so you can have some sacred self-pleasure time (or sexy time with your partner) as well.

  10. Shop Online. Skip the malls, crowds, and shopping frenzy this Black Friday by shopping online! Easy-peasy, less stress, headaches, saves on gas, and ships right to your door. Like we said: easy-peasy!

How to incorporate self-care into your LDR

If you and your partner are in an LDR, it may be more challenging to find quality time together… especially of a romantic nature.

Ways to spice it up a long-distance love affair include:

  • Sexting.
  • Facetime.
  • Getting a virtual sex toy you can use long distance.
  • Send your lover erotic surprises that they are not expecting, just because!
  • Plan virtual date nights.
  • Send love notes or virtual cards.
  • Plan a holiday adventure getaway together!
  • Don’t forget to schedule your sexy time with your partner as well.

Keep that spark alive long distance so when you do see your honey IRT the fire is easy to rekindle.
