Tips for creating stress-free holidays:
Be realistic. Keep expectations for the holiday season manageable by not trying to make it “the best ever”. Try to set realistic goals for yourself. Pace yourself. Make a list and prioritize. Organize your time. Be realistic about what you can and cannot do.
Give back. Doing something for someone else is an old remedy but can help. Volunteer your time. Local nonprofit charities are often in high need of volunteers during the holiday season. Giving back can be very uplifting in a number of ways!
Try something new. Changing up your routine can help you discover new activities and even friendships. Choose to celebrate the holidays in a way you haven’t before.
Eat and drink well. Actively watching your physical health will impact your mental health in a positive way. There are many opportunities to eat or drink too much over the holidays which may lead to feelings of guilt and regret. Treat yourself but make plans to not indulge.
Spend time with people who are supportive. Surround yourself with family and friends who are supportive and care about you. Can’t avoid that overbearing Aunt at a family function? Steer clear of relatives that set you off and rehearse family-function friendly topics to talk about. Finding yourself lonely over the holidays? Connect with someone you may have lost touch with over the years.
Get quality sleep. We often underestimate the importance of sleep. Try and maintain a consistent sleep schedule, “unplug” from screen time and smart phones an hour prior to your intended bedtime, and take time to unwind to create a relaxing and welcoming sleep environment.
Find time for yourself. In the rush of the holiday season, do not forget to take care of yourself both emotionally and physically. Try not to spend all your time providing activities for your family and friends.
Tis the season to give back!
