Stress levels increase during holiday season. Remember this time of year should be joyful. Don’t cave into the holiday stress.
Here are 5 tips for a stress free Merry Christmas.
1. Avoid making too many commitments
Remember you can’t be everywhere at the same time. Just like your money you have limits with your time. Stick with your rituals and try to keep as much of your normal routine in place as you can during the scattered schedule of Christmas season.
2. Don’t spend all time on Social Media
Social Media especially Facebook and Instagram glorifies excess. Particularly younger people can end up feeling dissatisfied with what they have because of what they see on social platforms. Social media also have a profound impact on your moods and mind, which might influence our spending habits.
3. Remember to have Fun
Give yourself permission to forget about all those tasks still left on your to do list. Take a deep breath and feel the moment. Go for a family stroll before or after dinner or set your morning alarm 20 minutes earlier to fit in a walk.
4. Stay Healthy
Holiday period is notoriously difficult for our healthy eating habits and exercise regimes. Think about what you eat and drink. Make sure you get a good breakfast. Take a walk, drink plenty of water and make time for exercise.
5. Remember what Christmas Season is all about
Christmas time is meant to be filled with joy, merriment and thankfulness. Christmas is a day of meaning and traditions, a special day spent in the warm circle of family and friends.
May the Holiday season bring happiness and joy to you and your loved ones.
