Plan smart, put yourself first

Those who are prepared are not surprised - so take the opportunity to schedule your schedule to make your pre-Christmas period full of enjoyable time. Yes, this includes time for yourself, which should be part of your annual plan. Plus, even just scheduling tasks, baking or cleaning, and buying gifts can help you evaluate whether you're overdoing it. Plan smart - start with time for your mental well-being.
Ask yourself: How can I sail through this challenging time with more peace of mind? What is really important to me at this time?
Do you feel like it's too much for your body? Surely you know that psychological stress quickly manifests itself in the physical world in the form of health problems. On the one hand essential oil blend BEWIT Nopa, that will support not only the body, but also the emotional comfort.
TIP: The list of what you want to get done before Christmas can look very challenging and endless. Make it easy for yourself. Do at least one small task a day. Even 1% effort per day adds up to 365% in a year, right?
A moment to yourself with the smell of Christmas
Forget the city smog or the heavy climate of shopping centres. Aromatherapy is the right key to relaxation and creating a Christmas atmosphere at home. Create a pleasant environment at home and spice up your preparations with the right Christmas scent to help you not only relax, but also invite the magic of Christmas home.

You may be asking yourself how you're supposed to handle the pre-Christmas rush when you indulge in a relaxing bath. The answer is simple: nourish yourself first, so that you can then cope with any tasks and challenges of the pre-Christmas period with all your resilience.
How about a digital detox?
It's easy to get lost in the digital world all year round, but what about this time of year? If you're stressed by all the perfect decorations and smiles on social media, it might be a good time to give yourself a little digital detox - and turn your attention to yourself and your loved ones. You don't have to compare yourself to anyone, you can create a Christmas exactly to your liking. Use this special time for offline activities. How about board games, reading books, long autumn walks?
Why do it? Digital detox helps restore focus, relieve pressure and in turn increase authentic connection with loved ones. And the mutual proximity? It's priceless. And that even a digital detox didn't help you feel better? The essential oil blend of BEWIT Integrity helps you connect with yourself. It will be easier to throw off mental burdens, return to harmony and gain mental freshness.
Make nature and movement your routine
The opposite of the Christmas rush is peace. It's easy to finish the rest. In nature, which is going to sleep and everything in it slows down beautifully at this time. It's a chance to observe the annual cycle, tune into nature's slowdown and do something to make your pre-Christmas being happier. Go for a regular walk or run to help you cope better in the weeks leading up to Christmas.
Our tip on how to be drawn into nature? Mindfulness. Stop in nature and observe your surroundings through the eyes of a child. What would have intrigued you as a young child? What detail would make you stop and marvel? What would you touch first in the forest?
TIP: After a cold (under)winter walk, skating or running (or hardening off), smell the BEWIT Aniseed. It has great warming and relaxing effects, plus you can use it when baking Christmas gingerbread. This is what Christmas smells like!
Take care of your body, digestion and vitality
The run-up to Christmas may not only be hard for you mentally, but also physically thanks to the amount of food that goes with it. Don't forget to be kind to your body. If you overdo it with food, it's time not only to rest, but also to lighten up. Think about a balanced diet, sufficient drinking and a balance between exercise and rest. You will be supported by the relieving essential blend BEWIT Ok Dig and BEWIT PRAWTEIN Ok Dig, which contribute to normal digestion. You'll also want to have on hand a blend of BEWIT Miracle and BEWIT PRAWTEIN Miracle essential oils to help deal with overall acidity naturally.

Self-coaching questions for the body: How can I keep my body in harmony? Is there anything I should be doing differently? Is there anything my body needs now? How will I feel if I do this for my body?
Why do it? The body, mind and emotions are one interconnected system. A change in one will affect the others, so body care and physical comfort is an important part of the overall harmony of the whole system.
