5 Ways to Keep the Good Vibes Going through the Holidays | Beachly Tips
Looking to keep those warm, beach vibes going even as we head into the holiday season? I’m here to help! This time of year can become overwhelming and hectic - from shopping lists to holiday parties, festive decor, and everything in-between. If you’re anything like me, you love the holidays - but you also know it can be a lot to take on at the same time. So I pulled together some of my go-to tips and tricks for how to stay calm and keep the good vibes going through the season.
Good vibes are what we’re all about around here anyways. Right, Beachly Tribe!? Let’s dive in and ease our way into the holiday season, the Beachly way.
Make time for YOU
If you’ve been a part of the Good Vibe Tribe for a while, you know how important wellness is to us here at Beachly. There are so many ways to incorporate wellness into your daily routine - small habits can oftentimes make big differences. And one of my favorite ways to practice wellness is by taking a little time for myself every once in a while. That might mean enjoying a cuppa hot coffee all to myself in the morning, going for an afternoon beach walk to get some fresh air, or winding down at night by curling up with a book in hand and my favorite candle burning.
Even with the hustle and bustle that this time of year brings, there’s still time to take little moments! And when we take these pauses throughout the day or week - it helps us to be more present and in tune with how we’re feeling. I know my head can feel like it’s spinning with excitement and anticipation for all the gift giving, treat eating, and delicious drink sipping!
P.S. The Beachly Winter box is alllll about taking a moment for YOU! It was carefully curated to bring a touch of beach and a whole lotta luxury into the cold Winter days on the horizon.

3 ways to keep stress minimal
When it comes to the holidays, I always try my best to stay present, practice gratitude, and appreciate the little moments as they come. It can be easy to get overwhelmed and caught up with my list of to-do’s and commitments! So I always try to get ahead of the stress and keep it minimal. Which can oftentimes be easier said than done… but hear me out, beach babes!
Here’s a few tips and tricks that are my go-to’s!
- Sleep and eat well! Now this might seem pretty standard for some of us. But for others, getting a solid night sleep and fueling your body with nutritious food can be a challenge. When you sleep and eat well, you’ll feel energized no matter what comes your way throughout the day.
- Focus on what matters most! When we spend time prioritizing what means the most, we’re putting our well-being first and getting ahead of the stress. Carving out a little extra time for yourself to be present with family or get outdoors for some fresh air can make a huge difference.
- Spend time doing what you love! If you’re like me, taking a long drive (bonus points if it’s along the coast) and playing my favorite playlist - the Ultimate Good Vibes Playlist, is one of the best ways to get the good vibes going. Find something that lifts your spirits and helps all your stressors to melt away.
My best advice is to spend time in the present, practice gratitude, and appreciate the little moments for what they are as they come. Easing into the holidays with a positive mindset and a little (or a lot) of preparedness will really make things less stressful when all the events, gatherings, and to-do’s eventually roll around!
This might seem obvious to some, but taking time to plan ahead truly reduces the amount of stress you can feel. I know a lot of us can tend to leave everything until the last minute - but when you try to stick to a plan and schedule, your days will feel like a breeze - a warm ocean breeze, that is!
If you're hosting a holiday party, you can get ahead of the game by getting your festive decor done early and creating a list of must-haves for food and drinks. A fun way to get your family and friends involved is by having everyone bring a sip or bite to eat to try new dishes and lighten the stress on your end.
And we can’t forget, ‘tis the season for giving (and a whole lotta shopping!). There’s deals, sales, and promos galore this time of year. An easy way to keep it simple is by planning ahead (of course) and making wish lists online. If you know a beach lover (guys or gals) or a beauty babe in your life, then Beachly has you covered! You can check out our gifting memberships here.

Give yourself grace and keep the good vibes going
Sometimes all it takes is a simple reminder to yourself that not everything has to be perfect. If money is a little tight this holiday season, there’s so many ways to still create meaningful moments and give special gifts to the ones you love. Spending quality time, getting outdoors, and soaking up all of the goodness and cheer that the holidays bring are all that truly matters.
And let’s not forget, the best way to make it through the holidays stress-free is to always remember to keep the good vibes going! Let go of any negative thought processes, toxic habits, and be present in every moment. Gratitude is always the best attitude - as cheesy as that may sound!
I hope these tips have been helpful for you and that you can keep the good vibes going through the season. The holidays and stress that may come along with it can really build overtime, so stay calm, follow these tips, and enjoy the best time of year with the ones you love.
P.S. Don’t forget - the best gift to give is the gift that keeps on giving! Treat yourself, a friend, or a loved one to a Beachly Women’s, Beachly Men’s, or Beachly Beauty subscription as the perfect beachy surprise.
