With Holidays right around the corner, now is a great time to talk about stress management during the holidays. Halloween, Christmas, Hannakkuh, heck even Easter can certainly be a stressful holiday for those with kids – from running around with excitement about costumes and trick-or-treating to sugar highs from too much candy – you’ll have a lot on your plate. Here are some tips for coping:
Make a Plan
Do not wait until the last minute to make a plan about holiday activities and what will happen when. Waiting until the last second to figure things out is extremely stressful.
Hold off on the Sugar
Regardless of the holiday, watch the sugar consumption of yourself and your family. While treats are certainly tasty, they will leave you feel depleted and drained. Sticking to healthy foods are best for mental and physical health.
Most important of all things to do during stressful seasons is to remember to breathe. This seems to be the very last thing we do when things are overwhelming and stressful. In fact if breathe using the
6-3-6-3 breathing technique you will gain the edge of all types of stressors.
Ask for Help
You can’t do it all so don’t expect to. Instead, ask for help from your spouse, family members or professional help from colleagues when needed.
Take Step Back From All The Activity
Try to take a minute every time you’re feeling stressed to step away from the situation and take a deep breath. Remind yourself it will be okay. Maybe even use the mantra “it’s ok, it’s ok, it’s ok” and you’ll get back on track incredibly quickly.
