Relaxing after long hardworking year

Here some easy ways to de-stress during the holidays:

  • Go for a walk. Yup, even if it’s snowy out. Walking gets you exercise, fresh air and sunlight! Three things that relax almost all of us.
  • Be less ambitious. None of your holiday guests or family members will care if you don’t present a perfect Christmas front, so don’t worry about it yourself. Doing a few things really well is likely to make you happier than doing 20 things poorly. So cut your to do list in half and then cut it in half again.
  • Volunteer for a cause that really means something to you. Contributing to something that matters is good for your mental health and it’s in keeping with the holiday season. It’s also a great way for the overly ambitious holidayers among us to feel accomplished, without getting overly focused on the little things.
  • Spend some time alone doing nothing. Of course you should — and will — spend time with your family and friends, but in order to avoid holiday burnout, you should also take some time to just be with yourself. Doing nothing. Taking 10 to 20 minutes to mediate, doze in bed, or watch the fireplace channel can help make even the most hectic of days tolerable.
