Stress Less During the Holidays
Great Tips during the Holidays and for the rest of the year as well.
Sunlight — Take a five minute outdoor break. Sunlight can help fight the low light wintertime “blues”.
Take time — Take fifteen minutes a day just for you and guard that time carefully.
Rest — Maintain routine hours of sleep.
Expectations — Make a list of all your “shoulds” and your “have-ta’s” then ask yourself “Who says?”
Sensible Eating — Allow yourself treats but pace yourself.
Spending limits — Set your gift ideas before you shop and stick with it.
Laugh — Find humor in the middle of frantic. Relax, don’t take it so serious!
Exercise — After the big meal, take a walk! You will burn more calories if you walk right away.
Small gifts — Think of gifts that are small but meaningful, example: write a story for your child, making him/her the hero, then read or tell your story to them on Christmas Eve.
Spirit - Consider what the real Spirit of the Holidays means to you.
