Tips for Managing Holiday Stress!

Are you finding yourself overwhelmed with holiday to-do list? Try some of these strategies to help reduce stress…


1. Cut back

What can you cut out of the holidays that won’t be missed? Only put up one tree? Decorate less? Shop online? Give fewer gifts? Do it!


2. Shift the Priorities

What things really matter during your celebrations? Put those first.


3. Hold onto the Positive  

Especially when you are around family, it can be easy to focus on the negative. This season, make it a goal to focus on the good and let everything else go.


4. Define Normal

It’s easy to get caught up in what the holidays are “supposed to be like.” Decide what your “supposed to” looks like, rather than allow others to define that for you.


5. Laugh more. Sing out loud. Take a Nap. Breathe often.
