Be Well: Our De-Stressing Recs For The Pre-Holiday Season
Posted on Oct 15, 2018
We prefer our holidays chill—and we’re guessing you probably do too. In the
spirit of a less-stressful season, we’ve put together a few tips to use
ahead of the game. So even when it seems like everyone around you is rushed
and tense, you’ll be in total ~zen~ mode.
ALL ABOUT THE MINDSET
We know, we know, the “stay positive” stuff is easier said than done. But
one great way to start is to take a little bit of time (really, like five
minutes) every day to clear your head. We love the simplicity of this
and its easy-to-follow guided meditations as a way to dip our toes into
GOOD EATS = GOOD VIBES
It’s no secret that eating well leads to feeling well, but sometimes finding
the time can be tricky—especially during the holidays. That’s why we like
the convenience of
which delivers pre-portioned frozen superfoods right to your door. Just pop
’em into your blender and go. Supplement those smoothies with personalized
vitamin packs from
and you’ll be unstoppable.
“YOU” TIME, MORE OF THE TIME
A lot of what makes the holiday season extra warm ‘n’ fuzzy is that it’s
about other people—giving back
even more to the community, finding just-right gifts for loved ones and
spending time with family and friends we might not see often. But don’t
forget about yourself. Recharge when you need to—curl up with a book, head
out for a jog, visit a museum, whatever makes you feel your best.
Another suggestion for getting in some “you” time? Pop by our superchill
pre-Black Friday event for Madewell Insiders. Score deals before anyone else (tackling that gift list early = major
stress relief) and nab a Cozy Kit filled with goodies, plus enjoy
exclusive offers from Headspace, Daily Harvest and Care/Of. More details
