Christmas is officially well on the way, and recently with the first snowfall in the alps, our minds are already turning to how we can make the holiday season even more special for our guests!
We know that things seem to kick up a notch in the weeks leading up to Christmas, when “To Do’ lists can spiral out of control and we get caught up in trying to cram too much into our lives! Throw into the mix organising and packing for a family vacation and it’s no surprise to realise that the winter holiday period can be one of the most stressful and exhausting times of year.
Look after yourself
So easy to overlook, but it’s like the oxygen-mask on the plane. You have to put yours on first before you can help anyone else out. Whatever it is that relaxes you, make time for it - both in the run up to your ski holiday and throughout your week with us. Exercise, relaxation, meditation, massage, sleep, mindfulness! It’s all available for you, don’t neglect yourself.
Remember, pounds do not equal love
It’s very easy to get caught up in the fantasy of the Christmas season and more often than not, it can mean excess and extravagance. But it doesn’t have to. Sure if you have the money and the time go for it, but if you don’t… then don’t. Putting financial strain on yourself over one day, will impact you and your family for the year. Just not worth it.
Keep everyone on the same page - if you all know the plan, then you can all work towards the same goal. Plus the old adage of ‘a problem shared is a problem halved’ is true. The mental load is not yours alone to carry!
Have some fun!
Schedule something in for the whole family - or just for yourself! Again, it doesn’t have to cost the world. Think snowball fights, hot chocolate mugs, sledging together, open fires & storeytime. Your chalet staff are bursting at the seams with ideas and helpful hints on how you can enjoy this quality family time together.
At the end of the day, Christmas is all about having fun and taking time out of our busy working lives and studies to spend some proper time with loved ones. So why not allow yourself to relax at Christmas?
