6 Ways To Relieve Stress During the Holidays

6 Ways To Relieve Stress During the Holidays

The holiday season can be a happy and busy time of the year.  Often, it is also a stressful time of the year.   Our "things to do list" can be long and calendars can be jam-packed with events. To help you have a happy season, here are some tips to relieve holiday stress.

1.  Meditation:  Try meditation before you begin your day.  Mindfulness and meditation are century old practices that have been proven to reduce stress and angst.  A daily practice of being completely present and cultivating awareness can improve your sleep, boost your immune system, help with focus and reduce your stress.  It may be exactly what is needed to get you through this busy time of year.      

2.  Get Outside:  One of the best ways to overcome stress during the holidays is to exercise and get outdoors.  Research shows that physical activity not only boosts your fitness and energy levels but can also elevate your moods. Perhaps an outdoor ice skate or sledding through the snow could be a way for the whole family to enjoy the outdoors and relieve stress together.

3. Plan Ahead: Create a schedule ahead of time that balances holiday events and personal time for you and your family. Allow yourself to say "no" as needed.  If your calendars are overly scheduled it may cause extra stress and angst. 

4. Be realistic: The holidays don't have to be perfect or just like last year. As families change and grow, traditions and rituals often change as well. Choose a few to hold on to, and be open to creating new ones.

5. Don't abandon healthy habits: Don't let the holidays become a free-for-all. Overeating and overindulging adds to stress and guilt. Here are some healthy strategies that can help: eat a healthy snack prior to a holiday get together so you don't overload on unhealthy treats; get plenty of sleep and continue physical activities.

6. Be generous: One of the best ways to be happy and manage your stress during this time of year is to act generously with your loved ones, co-workers and friends. This doesn't mean with gifts or spending money. You can be generous with your compliments. You can generously offer help to a loved one with chores or an errand. Or you can be creative and write a poem to a loved one about how much you appreciate them. This will feel good for both of you.
