3 Tips to Manage your Stress

The holidays are a time of joy, love, and togetherness. But the holidays can also be a big source of stress. Between work and family obligations, people stretch themselves too thin during the holiday season, which can lead to many health problems. Stress isn’t just about feeling overwhelmed, but can lead to fatigue, headaches, back pain, and many other problems that impact your daily life.

So in order to ensure that you can not only get through the chaos of the holiday season, but actually get to enjoy time with friends and family, here are a few tips to managing stressful situations over the next few weeks.

1. Pad your schedule. One reason people get stressed is because they have too much going on. Make sure you include time in your schedule to take breaks and recharge so you don’t get too overwhelmed.Avoid Stress

2. Lean on your support system. While you’re surrounded by people who care about you, let them be a support system for you. Talk to friends and family when you’re feeling overwhelmed and ask for their advice in handling difficult situations. You may be surprised with the help you get!

3. Focus on the moments. Stress can come when we’re too caught up in the big picture and making everything work together. Instead, focus on each moment individually, and getting through that moment to the next one.

The holidays should be a time of joy and family. And if you can find ways to manage the stress that sometimes comes from the holidays, you’ll be able to enjoy the time with friends and family, and make great memories to last until next year.
