We are in the thick of the holiday season, and while it’s a wonderful time of year, it often comes with extra obligations and lots of extra tasks on our to-do lists. The holiday season can be a stressful time of year, but it doesn’t have to be!
We’re sharing your wellness guide to surviving the holiday season without all the added stress.
A 5 Step Wellness Guide to Surviving The Holiday Season Without Stress
#1 Take Five:
When things get crazy, take five! Whether this means stepping away from family, you may be hosting to just have a few moments to get grounded and balanced, or stepping away from your holiday shopping list to do five minutes of meditation.
Whenever you are feeling completely stressed, just take five minutes to breathe and relax. You will feel much more balanced and ready to tackle that to-do list!
#2 Use Adaptogens:
Adaptogenic herbs can help support the body’s stress response, making them a great supplement choice this time of year. You can read all about how adaptogens can support you during this busy time of year here.
#3 Do Yoga Regularly:
There’s no denying just how great yoga is for the mind and the body, and it can certainly help you feel a little more grounded when things get hectic. Try fitting in a short yoga practice into your morning routine before your busy day begins.
#4 Get Out And Move:
In addition to yoga, moving your body through brisk walking, jogging, or even strength training can really help make a huge difference in how you feel both physically and mentally. If it’s not too cold, see if you can get outside for some exercise to get the added benefit of some vitamin D!
#5 Eat Well:
Last but not least is to eat well. While we are often faced with lots of holiday sweets this time of year, try to eat as healthy as you can to keep your blood sugar levels stable. This is an important part of keeping your mood and energy levels up, two things we need this time of year!
