Managing Holiday Stress

The holiday season is upon us!  Here are a few tips to beat the stress.

1) Plan Ahead.  Life can get pretty crazy.  How much better would you feel if you took a small amount of time each day to plan the next day or two?  Having a schedule will help you prioritize activities and you won’t miss out on those important tasks each day.

2) Time Out.  Even parents need a time out once in a while.  This is a great time for reflection, meditation or deep breathing.  Put yourself in time out every couple days and see how much better you feel!

3) Eat Slowly.  When we see a counter full of delicious food we fill our plate wanting to try a “little” of everything.  Then we eat like we are in the Army, rushing through our food so we don’t miss out on desert.  In the end we are stuffed, in pain and unable move.  Eating slowly allows our stomach time to digest the food and allows our brain to recognize when we are full.

4) Take Care.  This time of the year is busy.  The stronger more resilient your body is the better you can fight off colds and recover from physical demands.  Make sure you keep to your workout, adjusting and massage schedules.
