Stress Relief Techniques for the Holidays

Stress relief is a huge part of personal wellness. Stress eats at you emotionally and ultimately physically. It’s sad because so much stress is unnecessary and self-created.

I started seeing Christmas commercials the day after Halloween. I guess we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving anymore. What this means is that the Christmas season, the ultimate example of self-generated stress, has begun.

    I love your “don’t be a hater”! I think the commerical stuff starts too early, so I resist it for too long and then all of a sudden it’s almost Christmas and I’m not ready. I try to follow the church Advent rituals, so that helps.

      Thanks for bringing up Advent. Advent is technically supposed to be similar to Lent, where we wait and pray in anticipation for the birth of Jesus. Then the celebration is supposed to be the time between Christmas and the Epiphany. Not anymore!

      Great suggestion. I never used to need to make lists. I had a mind like a steel trap. Now, it’s necessary for me if I don’t want to forget something.

What do you think? We'd love to hear your comments!
