Tips for Reducing Holiday Season Stress

Even though the holidays can be a particularly stressful time for many of us, there are measures we can take that will help lessen the emotional and psychological burden we experience during this time of year.

We all get so caught up keeping up appearances and trying to create some sort of ideal reality that is on the borderline of being a fairytale. Instead, being more practical this holiday season might be the ticket for you.

Choose one, two, or a few people to purchase gifts for instead of numerous people. Make your gifts make more of an impact by getting someone a gift who might not receive one often, and also putting a lot of thought and energy into that gift. It’s a great way to make a person smile and to feel amazing at the same time.

Being mindful this holiday season of all you have (even if it isn’t much) will keep you in a state of gratitude. Remembering that there are people suffering out there, even people who are a stone’s throw away from you, will help you keep things in perspective.

Practicing a little self-care during this month is important, too. Take a yoga class, hit a heavy bag to get rid of stress or any pent-up anger you have, and take a nature hike to clear your head when things get a little hectic.

Allow for mistakes to happen this holiday season, too, because nothing (and no one, for that matter) is perfect.
