The Self Care Gift – A Virtual Advent Calendar
One of the joyous things I remember as a child is having the excitement of that years approaching Christmas be represented by a daily affirmation or gift in a box. The anticipated possibility behind a cupboard door flap with a number on it ready to open each morning to discover the surprise of the day. A tradition based in Christianity recorded from Germanic foundations to become a much loved representation of anticipation over 25 days in December annually. I remember commercial based advent calendars with a chocolate or sugar candy each day to one year receiving the Sunday school’s version equipped with bible verses each day. There are many versions of these yearly celebration calendars with all gamut of commerciality of imaginable gifts or hand crafted creations awaiting inside.
As adults the Holiday season may not have the same joy it may have once had as a child if that was your experience. Often this time of year can be stressful and triggering with all the emphasis on happy families. When our daily truth may not have the reality of joy and generosity. Perhaps we don’t have the feeling of a safe and supportive family or we could be missing loved ones or facing health and personal issues. This time of year can be magical and amazing yet difficult and challenging as well so I wanted to create a supportive version of an advent calendar. Something that would be a little gift or surprise each day from December 1 into your email inbox. Like an adult self care version with a daily gift of connection based as a 25 day gratitude practise with daily mediations to support you leading up to and through the Holiday season. A chance to take a short moment to connect with you daily to support your nervous system to be nourished to connect within each day to support you to glide through the intensity and challenges that sometimes arise this time of year.
