Tips voor een relaxte kerst

Tips for a relaxed Christmas

Hey there!

Another 6 weeks and it's Christmas again! It seems as if time flies by even faster in this corona misery. Good thing, too ;-). In any case, we are really looking forward to some extra atmosphere and fun during the holidays. Even though they may look slightly different this year than hoped.

The Christmas tree is already up in the SELF office (oops!). I'm clearly not the only Christmas crazy, because I've seen quite a few Christmas scenes on Facebook and Instagram. And you know what? We are right!

Christmas atmosphere makes you happy

Did you know that it has been scientifically proven that decorating early gives your sense of happiness a significant boost? This is what scientists from The Journal of Environmental Psychology say. How can this effect be explained? Christmas decorations would remind you of your childhood, when life was still free and carefree. Moreover, a decorated house also influences how others see you. Cozy Christmas decoration shows that you are a cozy and warm person. So dust off those Christmas lights and decorate the inside and outside of your house with cozy atmosphere makers.

Bring on the Christmas feeling! By the way, it doesn't have to stop at Christmas decorations. By getting into the mood now, you will save yourself that annoying Christmas stress. Because admit it, our nerves have been tested enough this year, haven't they? 

Think about your Christmas menu

Does boredom strike during corona times? Then think about what you can put on the table for Christmas. Not much of a kitchen princess? Order your party menu from your favorite restaurant or caterer. I already know which option I will choose :-).

For those who don't know me that well: I like to make things easy for myself. But in times of #shoplocal, that is perfectly justifiable, right?

Shop all your Christmas gifts now

Going into the shopping street together in search of the perfect Christmas gift is not an option this year. But honestly? I'm not going to miss it. This year I will easily buy my gifts online, from my favorite Belgian brands and local stores.

PS : Have you already seen our nice SELF Christmas packages ? This year we chose two beautiful gift boxes that we filled with our bestsellers. Mini or maxi ? You choose! 

Or fill the luxurious SELF Christmas bag with your favorite products. With a Christmas gift from SELF you can give your mom, sister, girlfriend or bestie a wonderful me-time moment!
