Life is pretty busy, but doesn’t it seem like December is super busy? We know it’s a happy time of year when everyone enjoys family, food, laughs and giving. But sometimes getting ready for those celebrations can seem like a roller coaster rush of preparing, planning, shopping and trying to check everything off your list. Some days it feels like the clock is ticking and suddenly the holidays are in your face!
Fortunately, when you’re caught up in the holiday season—or any season—there’s a lot you can do to help your body and mind cope with occasional stress. For example, experts recommend practicing simple methods such as planning and taking breaks or trying relaxation techniques (visualize your happy place!). Other ways to support your ability to deal with stress include getting regular physical activity, getting enough sleep and eating a healthy, varied diet.
