Surviving Holiday Stress

Be realistic. Now is the time to take a step back and look realistically at the time frame you have remaining to get all these things done on top of your regular activities.

Maintain your regular exercise routine. Don’t slip up simply because you have some extra errands to do.

Get to bed at your usual time or earlier. Instead of compromising your sleep time, reevaluate how important an errand or task is in the first place.

Feel pulled in a million directions? Schedule “you” time for at least 15-30 minutes each day doing something that you enjoy. 

Learn to say no. Don’t take something on assuming you will find the time to get it done.

Eat properly. Pick and choose the healthiest foods and indulge on those. Eat smaller portions of your selected treats.

Cut down your gift giving list. Gather for a cookie or gift exchange where each person is only required to bring one item or, send a thoughtful Christmas card instead.

Stick to a budget. Financial woes top of the list of relationship issues. Don’t put an extra strain on yourself and your relationship by running up big bills this season.

Forget about perfection. Perfection isn’t reality. Don’t be so hard on yourself!
