Today, I want to take time out to talk to all of you who are hitting a milestone event. Whether it is a wedding, a 50th birthday party, a graduation, or any other big event that you are throwing a party for, we have a very important message for you today.
Even when you are having an amazing time planning your event, which we truly hope you are, there is no getting around the fact that it is emotionally exhausting. You have a lot of things, time and personal decisions you have put into the event. You have family and friends all coming together in one place. Even if they are good emotions, it is still an emotional roller coaster that you are on. On top of that, the amount of time you spend away from your normal day to day is a drain on your physical self, your emotions and your sleep. All of that being said, all of those emotions combine to create a single amazing event. We want to encourage you to take care of yourself during the planning so that you can enjoy your big day.
Here are some of our tips:
· Make it a regular habit to exercise: Go to gym, an exercise class, walk with a friend, or take a jog
· Drink lots of water: Keep a water bottle with you and get into the habit
· Take time for you as a couple, your family and your friends: You don’t want to ignore these relationships during the planning process or you’ll be so disconnected on the big day that you’ll be at a loss as to how to catch up
· Take time for you: Even if your mind is running a million miles, you have a ton of things to accomplish, and your to do list is mounting up – you still need to go get your nails done, read a good book, snuggle with your honey, and get out and do your favorite things.
