We’re sharing my favorite Restorative Holiday Gift Guide for the Caregiver / Over-doer / Nurturer (aka keeper of all moving parts) in your life — and my bet is, like me, that person is you!
As a healing garden designer and serenity stylist consultant, I help my people create and style beautiful outdoor living and garden spaces that reflect the needs of their heart and soothe their senses making way for greatness and good self-care. During the winter season, nature invites us to do this differently than would we, say, in the dog days of summer.
Now, my recovering chronic overdoer/overgiver side may be showing here, yet, like you, I’m in hot pursuit of serenity and taking good care inside and out, in simple, easy, nature-infused ways – all the days of my life. I must. We must. We have a lot of people depending on us – and the most important of these people is us. Reality check: if the wheels fall off for us, the wheels fall off for all.
To take good care is restorative to our nature. Taking Good Care of our energies, exchanges, and precious selves restores our good nature. And honestly, decreases that wee bit of crunchiness we caregivers can feel…
Because I imagine you love a simple, restorative, nurturing indulgence here and there too AND because there are even more moving parts this time of year, I’m sharing my top favorite Restorative Holiday Gifts for the Caregiver / Overdoer / Top Dog Nurturer in the Family.
I’m a big believer in “some to give and some to keep” particularly for the “keeper of all moving parts” person.
