5 Steps to Taking Care of Yourself this Busy Holiday Season

The holidays are upon us! And with that brings the hustle and bustle of parties, presents and planning get-togethers with friend and family. We often get so wrapped up in everything that we forget to stop and take care of ourselves until we are starting to feel run-down or sick. Babble Boxx has sponsored this post and put together a selection of items guaranteed to get you through the holidays and stand up to cold and flu season.

Step 1) Relax! 

One of the best ways to stay less stressed is to take some time for yourself and relax. A great way to do that is to get lost in a good book. Louisiana’s Way Home by two-time Newbery Medalist Kate DiCamillo, published by Candlewick Press, is a story about discovering who you are and who you want to be. The #1 New York Times bestseller may be aimed at young adults, but the story of Louisiana Elefante and her eccentric granny that runs away with her in the middle of the night, convinced the day of reckoning has arrived, will speak to a wide range of audiences as Louisiana’s life becomes entangled with the lives of others along the way and she works to discover who she really wants to be and find a way home.
