It's no secret that the holidays can be a stressful time for many of us, whether we're stressed out about paying end-of-the-year bills, springing for lavish gifts for family and friends, not to mention having relatives over for celebrations and gatherings that take effort and planning.
No wonder so many people feel stressed and anxious during this time of year. However, there are ways you can deal with and cope with your stress and anxiety, so you don't end up becoming a Grinch this holiday season.
Tip #1: Exercise
Don't put off exercising in lieu of working extra hours and especially don't put exercise on the backburner in favor of binge-watching your favorite trash TV show. Make sure you get your workouts in. Go for a run or a hike, especially if you feel like stress is setting in. You'll feel better about most things after a workout!
Tip #2: Don't Over Do It
It might be tempting to create that all-elusive "Best Christmas Ever" but the reality is that nothing is perfect. You might spend a lot of time, money, and put your peace of mind at risk by trying to create and manage the perfect holiday. Instead, just be present and do what you're able. Be there for your family, because that's what counts!
Tip #3: Visit a Chiropractor
