Are you getting as excited as we are about Christmas! With it only being a few days away were hoping everyone isn’t out and about stressing themselves out.
Here are some ideas to help you relax your way through the holiday season..
If you are hosting family this year have a music break before everyone arrives. Play some uplifting or relaxing music and allow yourself to destress.
Connect with nature. Take a quiet walk on the beach or in the woods.
Don’t over-schedule. Keep your holiday time organized but don’t press yourself for time.
Sip relaxing tea while just listening to the world around you. Not allowing any worries to penetrate your thoughts.
Bake a batch of cookies with your kids. Kids are very perceptive and can feel it when you are stressed out.
Do something good for others….
Let a driver make a turn while you wait. Smile and wave!
Donate to a charity whose work you genuinely admire. Giving really is better than receiving—really!
Let somebody else get on the escalator, off the elevator, through the grocery line, first.
Remember those you love. Bring back family traditions, have dad dress up like Santa just like your uncle did when you were a kid.
Breathe – try relaxation breathing and make sure to do this at least twice a day.
Enjoy time with your family and friends and don’t let Christmas stress you out!
