December is a month full of magic and fun, but it can also be a time of stress. Between all the running around this month, remember to take some time and just enjoy yourself in your apartment! Here are some tips on how you can preserve your sanity during this hectic (and joyful) time.
Indulge yourself! Spend as much time in bed as possible in the days leading up to the holiday. Eat what you want. Read what you want. Watch the TV you like. Be completely self-indulgent. Do what you need to get done, but also enjoy your time at home and don’t just leave it to wrapping gifts and endless cooking making. Your apartment is your sanctuary and it needs to always feel that way!
Take a walk with your furry friend! A walk around the block with your dog can do wonders. Because we allow pets at The Rivington, for our residents with cats and dogs we encourage you to take refuge with your pet. Did you know that pets are natural stress relievers? Whether it’s just lounging with the cat or taking your pup to our local dog park, take a second out of your day to spend with your pet. It might be the most relaxing part of your day!
Get in a workout! Between the warm NJ winter we’ve been having and our onsite fitness facility, there’s no reason not to get a workout in this December. While exercise is not something commonly associated with the holidays, you’d be surprised how relaxing a walk on the treadmill or elliptical can be after a busy shopping day.
Rest, relax and reflect at The Rivington! The holidays are a time of joy – but only if you take the time to take care of yourself. Happy Holidays!
