How to create a "well-being" advent calendar?
100% free and comforting
The beginning of December is synonymous with the beginning of the Advent Calendar.
Whether you are a child, teenager, or adult, opening the first box on December 1st always has something magical about it. There is no age for this little pleasure of the holiday season.
Do not hesitate to get a calendar that will really make you happy. There is something for every taste! Are you more chocolates, teas, sweets, cosmetics, etc.?
Of course, you can buy one already made, but there is also another option. You can make your own according to your tastes and desires. A 100% free calendar, or almost, according to the expenses/surprises you decide to make.
This is the concept of the "well-being" advent calendar. You will see, it's fun to do, and it comes in several versions. Take the opportunity to let go of your imagination and reconnect with your inner child.
To begin :
Decide first how often you want little surprises. Is it every day, once a week, three to four times a week, etc.? Ask yourself what frequency is most realistic for making the calendar as well as doing the activities (if you decide to include activities on your calendar). This
can be quite demanding to find 31 surprises for your calendar.
Remember that the activity must be pleasant and not stressful. Keep all this in mind when making your choices.
Think about whether you want to have your calendar for your own or as a couple /family/friends. Including other people you love in the process can make the activity and surprises even more enjoyable. Up to you!
Next step :
You have reached the stage of deciding what exactly your calendar will look like. It does not have to be complicated. For example, it can be in a box where you slip surprises and/ or slips of paper with activity ideas on it. You then only have to pick them at the desired moments. You can also buy or make fabric calendars with the dates of December. You must then simply slip the surprises in the pockets provided for this purpose.
Finally, the most fun:
You just have to create the surprises that will be in your calendar. If you do it with others, you can decide to separate this task with others and, thus, to keep you real surprises for later.
Here are some ideas of what might be in your calendar:
A coupon that entitles you to a "home spa" evening (bubble bath, mask, etc.).
A tablet of your favorite chocolate.
A few sachets of your favorite tea.
An afternoon/evening home theater with your favorite snacks.
A free activity to do as a family: a hike, a session of artistic creations, etc.
The goal is to find little things that will make you happy and bring a little joy and magic through your month of December. It's up to you to do the exercise and discover these.
