The holiday season is so stressful for me. Between the kids’ activities, the volunteer projects, my work schedule, shopping for gifts, and hosting parties, it is really hard for me to calm down and relax. I don’t think I am alone in this, right?
I found these seven tips to make me more relaxed through the holidays. They are tasks that I love to do throughout the year, especially when I am busy servicing others.
Do exercise. walking, running or doing yoga are wonderful ways to let go of stress.
Make lists for each event to keep track of every task. I do this especially when I can’t sleep.
If you are creative, even doing craft projects will make you relax.
Watching your favorite Comedy show or movie. Laughing is a wonderful way to let go of the stress.
Treat yourself to a Massage, Facial, Mani, or Pedi, even a bath would help you relax – one of my favorite ways to treat myself.
Deep Breathing exercise also helps while you are in the midst of the stressful tasks.
Clear the clutter from a room and make it a quiet room only for relaxation. Remove all electronics except for a radio to listen to music. Only put your favorite things in the room.
I hope your holiday season isn’t too stressful. If it is, I hope you can use some of these tasks to help you control the stress.
