Holiday stress

Holiday stress

Stress and holidays go together like mashed potatoes and gravy. You can have them separate, but they often go together. The stresses of the holiday season- rushing around to buy presents, attend programs, prepare meals, see family... can be good and bad. Sometimes, loneliness sets in, even when you're active and surround by hundreds of people in a last minute gift dash to the store. Sometimes, it can just feel overwhelming. Whatever the reason for the stress, here are some helpful tips from the Mayo Clinic. Go to their site for more detail on these tips. 

  1. Acknowledge your feelings. 
  2. Reach out.
  3. Be realistic. 
  4. Set aside differences. 
  5. Stick to a budget.
  6. Plan ahead. 
  7. Learn to say no.
  8. Don't abandon healthy habits. 
  9. Take a breather.
  10. Seek professional help if you need it.
