5 Ways to a No Stress Holiday
Here are some simple tips to help keep your holidays fun and enjoyable. Shared via my long-time friend, Aimee Le Zakrewski Clark of The No Stress Foundation™. Thanks Aimee!
1. Don’t forget to breathe.
Usually when we are stressed, we forget to breathe. It’s simple. Consciously breathing will allow your body and mind to be more relaxed … We promise. This works! (see below for tips on Proactive Stress Relief Breathing).
2. Ask for help when you need it.
3. Spend within your means.
4. Do things because you WANT to (not because you HAVE to).
The holidays can be decked with obligation – you can keep it jolly by replacing the “should’s” and “have to’s” with “I can’t wait to do that” … and by the way, it’s o.k. to say no every once in a while.
5. If the drama comes, let it go.
Let’s be honest, the holidays will present some drama. Solution: See step #1, followed by letting it go … Seriously, this works too!
Happy Holidays from The No Stress Foundation™!
