During the holiday season it's common for
many people to be overwhelmed by stress. If this time of year is more likely to
get you down, you're a good candidate for these stress-relieving holiday tips.
Everyone has high expectations around the holidays. Gift lists, family
gatherings, school programs—it's a lot to cram in an already full schedule.
Admittedly, the most difficult expectations to overcome are your own. If you're
caught up in creating the perfect holiday, or overwhelmed because of the
super-human effort it takes to do it all, maybe a change in attitude is in
order. Or, a change in shopping habits. Try browsing online, then shop the late
hours when stores are less crowded.
Eat Healthy Snacks
Don't skip meals and become so hungry you wolf down every sugary, fat-laden
treat. Recent studies show that eating high saturated fatty foods while
stressed makes the fats more damaging to your body, and can contribute to major
illnesses like type 2 diabetes. Stock your kitchen with foods proven to bring
stress levels down: oranges, avocados, walnuts, and even dark chocolate.
No to Fluff, Yes to Making Memories
It's okay to trim things down to stay on budget, and to maintain your sanity,
but preserve the important stuff, like family traditions. Maybe you don't get
your kid absolutely everything on her list (the fluff), but if she absolutely
loves decorating sugar cookies, make time to bake and decorate those cookies!
Just before bed, make a list of everything you still need to accomplish, or you
won't be able to think of anything else as soon as you turn off the light. Is
insomnia adding to your stress? Try drinking eight ounces of tart cherry juice
several hours before bedtime, studies show the melatonin in tart cherry juice
can help you to sleep better.
Holiday gatherings can be major events, and a little stress
is unavoidable. Mind those healthy habits, strategize shopping plans, and let
the kids have their most wonderful time of the year. Make it your aim to enjoy
