Avoid Burnout During the Holiday Season

Feeling overwhelmed and excited during the holiday season is normal.. You need to be aware if it burdens you in a negative way. . Make sure to leave time for yourself to exercise and/or go for a walk. Perhaps you can relieve evening stress with a warm bath, meditation and /or soothing music. Make sure to spend with the people you enjoy and are supportive. Social support is our greatest stress reducer! You might want to reflect upon past holidays that were enjoyable and how you can mimic those events and the planning involved. Try not to overcommit, as tempting as it is. It is your holiday season as well and make time to have fun and enjoy yourself rather than meeting others expectations. May you have a nice holiday season!
