Managing Your Holiday Stress

Posted: 12/9/11

As the holidays quickly approach, with sometimes overwhelming demands, it is important to remember one’s health. Weather, seasonal company, time management and money issues are just a few of the contributing factors that may turn holiday cheer into holiday horror. Stress not only takes a toll on your health, but can also lead to problems in the workplace and with relationships.

Below are just a few ideas our office came up with to handle these stressors:

  1. Get a massage.
  2. Exercise over your lunch hour.
  3. Breathing techniques.
    (As therapists, we teach them, we may as well use them!)
  4. Eat some baked goodies (in moderation of course).
  5. Stretch.
  6. Laugh with your patients.
  7. Remember no one is perfect.
  8. Walk when you can.
  9. Drink some hot chocolate.
  10. Take a nap.

Relaxation techniques really work. Read about them here and take the time to practice some stress reduction this holiday season.
