Put Caring First This Holiday Season

The act of caring is so significant because it can be the key to one’s happiness—whether it’s your own or those around you. Whether it is through a small or large act, you have the power to make a difference when you choose to care. After all, every choice is a chance! Especially in the midst of the holiday craze, it is important to care not only for others but yourself as well.

Leadership habits and character qualities

WHAT DOES CARING LOOK LIKE?

Caring can look like many different things. It looks like asking someone if they are ok, genuinely listening to what your friend is saying, complimenting someone, or saying thank you. These are just some of the ways you can care for others in your everyday lives. And just as we strive to care for others, we must also practice self-care.

CARE FOR YOURSELF INSIDE AND OUT

Caring for yourself inside and out is one of the Moorelands Kids Leadership Habits and Qualities! It is important to engage in self-care over the holidays. Taking care of yourself is something we should be doing every single day! It is important that we eat and sleep well in our everyday lives—an important part of self-care— and take the time we need to relax.

Over the holidays, self-care can look like watching your favourite holiday movie, taking a nap, reading a book by the fireplace, or making yourself a nice cup of hot chocolate!

CARE FOR THOSE CLOSE TO YOU

For many people, the holidays are a time to spend with loved ones and those who are close to you. Some ways you can care for your family and friends are by spending time together, giving hugs, communicating often, and giving holiday gifts!

CARE FOR THOSE IN NEED

Although the holiday season is usually seen as a time of happiness and joy, it can also be a challenging time for many people. During the holidays, those in need may need a little extra care and support, and you can find opportunities to help others in need around your community!

You can care for those in need by volunteering at shelters or food drives, donating goods, writing holiday cards, or even through simple acts of kindness such as smiling at others or waving hello!
