For most people the holidays are spent with your closest friends and family. It's a wonderful time to be together and personally one of my favourite times of the year. I love staying inside under a warm blanket in the cold Canadian winter nights and going skiing on Christmas day. I have to say though that this year was a little different.

Self-care is a struggle for many of us. We focus so much on getting through school, achieving our career goals, and having (and then looking after) our families, only squeezing in time for ourselves to exercise, travel, socialize, etc. almost as an after thought. We owe this work ethic to the culture around us, sacrificing ourselves for those around us as if it makes us more successful, but the reality is that we do better, and we are better, if we look after ourselves first.
