Banish Stress

Yes- it’s that time!! For me, holiday season is the most stressful time of year. You feel that you have to do certain things and fit all standards or else it’s just not right!!

I can totally be a stressed person all year round- I have two boys, I take care of my mom, and I help out with my family business! So my plate is pretty full!!

But for some reason- the holiday season brings a different type of stress!!

I just caught up in reading my personal development book, The Badass Life, and what a perfect segment I just read which was about dealing with stress!

Whether it’s stress because of actual happy events (a wedding, buying a house, having kids) or Chronic Stress (constant stressors like financial hardship, a job you hate, illness) – we need to try and focus on lowering our stress levels so we can stay healthy body and mind!!

Christmas Abbott gave some great strategies to help lessen stress::

Move your body

Breathe & relax

Eat right, stress less

Sleep away stress

Stop tweeting, texting, emailing

Watch what you drink at night

Grab a heavier blanket

Worry not

Sip tea

Change your response (my favorite)

These sound doable! Hope they help out!

Good night! 💤
