For many of us, the holiday season represents a much-anticipated, joyous time of the year. But for others, it’s a hectic and stressful period that’s become synonymous with exhaustion, overeating, accruing debt and family drama.
Just hearing the word “holiday” can create anxiety and stress for some people. In fact, a survey by Consumer Reports found that 90 percent of Americans find at least one thing stressful about the holiday season.
However, the holidays don’t have to be something you dread. With practical planning and brain-directed supplement support, you can successfully navigate the holidays with happiness and good cheer.
Taking these four steps can help reduce the stress of the holiday season:
Did you know that practicing gratitude can make your brain work better? Research has demonstrated that people who express gratitude on a regular basis are healthier, more optimistic, make more progress toward their goals and have a greater sense of well-being. Experience the joy that gratitude can bring this holiday season.
Delegate While You Celebrate
You don’t have to do everything yourself—you can tackle your “to do” list with others. Spending time with friends and family while you share tasks, like preparing the holiday meal, shopping, cleaning and decorating, can be an enjoyable time of bonding. You don’t have to be the holiday hero.
Just Say No
The holidays can make people feel out of control and at the mercy of traditions or expectations. But you can take control of the holidays by refusing to let them control you. Say “no” to events and activities that aren’t making you happy or are causing holiday stress.
