Here's How To Stress Less During The Holiday Season #WellnessWednesday

The holiday season is a time for joy and all-around Christmas cheer, but it also comes with a lot of obligations. Organizing friend gatherings, Christmas dinners, holiday parties, and office Secret Santa exchanges can be overwhelming and bring on the holiday stress, especially when things slip through the cracks. But what can you do to not get so holidazed? Break the pattern this year by keeping these tips in mind so that you don’t succumb to stress.

Be practical. With so much going on in terms of family, friends, and even coworkers, you have to prioritize what’s most important. You may not be able to attend every party, so don’t RSVP for everything, especially if you’re contributing food, drinks, decorations, etc.

Set a budget. Shopping is one of the most stressful things to do during the holiday season, but overspending can have your stress levels soaring. For those that have thrown a holiday party, even if you try to get guests to bring dishes or drinks, you could still end up footing the bill. Don’t forget the gifts for family members and friends could cost you! Make a budget that you can stick to so that you don’t have any surprises on your credit card statement.

Don’t over extend yourself. If you’re a person that always feels like there’s a million things to do, try easing up on the responsibilities this year. It doesn’t all have to be on you. Delegate task between family and friends to make things run smoother.

Take some “me” time. The holidays are all about togetherness, but sometimes you need a moment to yourself. Having some “me” time in the midst of it all can help you recharge while your juggling a million other things.
