Reduce Your Holiday Stress

December 18, 2020 2 min read

Christmas is known as the season to be jolly and it is a great time for family, friends, and fun. However, it can also be a significant source of stress and pressure, and a never-ending to-do list. Christmas and the holidays can be a massively busy time. Some of the reasons people get super-stressed or tired can be working long hours, worrying about financial cost for presents, or too many events planned.

Most of us are aware of the effects that stress can have on our body and with everything else going on in the world it adds an extra strain to our mental and physical health. Stress can negatively impact your health by lowering your immune system and making you more susceptible to illness.

To help you get through this holiday, I want to share 10 ways you can reduce the holiday stress (before it comes) so you can spend your time on what really matters to you.

  1. Stay active.
  2. Set a budget for spending on presents.
  3. Do not over do it on your schedule, downtime is important.
  4. Avoid family conflict.
  5. Do not overdo it on the sugar.
  6. Get plenty of rest.
  7. Get sunlight and fresh air.
  8. Avoid excess alcohol.
  9. Treat yourself.
  10. Meditate or practice yoga.

Remember the reason for the season and enjoy the time that you have together with your family and friends. If things do not go as planned try not to worry too much, instead laugh and instead make them into fun memories to talk about for years to come.

The perfect addition to help with stress and tension is our Therapeutic Body Wrap. The Body Wrap would offer some assistance with increasing mobility, lessening pain, and relaxing muscles. The Benefab ® fabric is infused with a powder blend comprised of 30 lead-free minerals that emit therapeutic waves known as FAR-infrared rays which penetrate deep to provide soothing relief for pain and healing. Which has a versatile design that can be worn as an overcoat or shawl and is comfortable enough to wear while resting or during activity. Check it out here!
