Holiday Stress and Anxiety Prevention – Homewood Health

The holidays are times of magic and wonder. But the scale easily tips to the other spectrum, full of worry and stress, when we think of the cookies we need to bake, the decorations we need to put up, the house that needs cleaning, the tree that needs to be purchased, or the gifts that need wrapping. It comes as no surprise how, suddenly, the most wonderful time of the year turns into the most stressful one too.

Luckily, it doesn’t have to be so. We can minimize some of the stress by recognizing what our minds and bodies are telling us, acknowledging our reactions, and developing plans to put safeguards in place allowing us to be better prepared. In the attached information, we’ll look into the 7 ways you can use to help alleviate the stress. Spoiler alert, it includes a generous dose of breathing exercises, a heaping of courage to be honest with loved ones, and sprinkled with some self-care.
