Enjoy A Stress-Free Holiday

The holiday season brings so much joy! As we try to create a great family celebration, sometimes we feel stressed as we balance our additional responsibilities. This holiday season, enjoy time with family and friends, and simplify your life.

  • Here are some suggestions for dealing with holiday stress:
  • Make sure to eat healthy, nutritious food, drink plenty of water, and maintain your exercise routine.
  • Keep expectations for the holidays realistic by prioritizing your most important activities.
  • Recognize and respect your limits.
  • Share holiday chores with family. Finish with hot chocolate!
  • Don’t exceed your budget! Those bills will pile up in January.
  • Rest when you are tired! Remember to relax and enjoy the peace of the season.
  • Look forward to new experiences in the New Year!
  • Make a list of all you have to be grateful for.
  • Attend festivities locally with your community members.
  • Make plans with supportive, caring friends and family.
  • Carve out some “me” time! Plan some special treats for yourself.
