TIPS & IDEAS TO REDUCE HOLIDAY STRESS AND REFRESH (TO GET READY) FOR THE NEW YEAR… WITHOUT LEAVING HOME

1) Take Deep, Comfortable Breaths All The Time

  • When you’re feeling bombarded by stress, immediately redirect your awareness to your breathing.
  • FREE YOUR MIND. Focus on how you are feeling. Take deep nourishing, comfortable breaths – IN AND OUT.
  • You should feel RELAXED.They should be long comfortable, sustained breaths. (DEMO BREATHING). Repeat this sustained breathing for 10 to 15 seconds. You will go from being upset to feeling CALMER.
  • As soon as it starts to feel like work, you are not breathing correctly. You don’t need to stop in your tracks and strike a pose. Try breathing this way every day – anywhere. At home, the office, in the supermarket checkout line….anywhere.
  • This will ULTIMATELY RELEASE STRESS by increasing your circulation; it will instantly cause a mood change and you will feel REFRESHED. Try it!!

2) We have breathing and stretching to de-stress…

  • One of the reasons we feel so stressed at holiday time is we are indoors a lot more, sitting for longer periods, the weather is cold – we need to get our energy up by STIMULATING & INCREASING OUR CIRCULATION.
  • We call these stretches the 10-Minute Yoga Base – but TRUST ME – anyone at any age can do this.

  • Also, REV UP YOUR CIRCULATION by moving your body every 20 minutes. Keep moving! Whether you’re in a plane or movie theater – bend your knees or move your feet. On a long trip, stop the car, get out and stretch with the whole family.

3) Follow the ONE-TO-ONE RULE

  • Drink one glass of water for every glass of alcohol you consume. So chase that champagne down with a glass of H2O tonight.
  • It sounds simple, but it really works. It will keep you hydrated and also lessen the likelihood of having a bad hangover the next day.

4) GRATITUDE

  • We all tend to feel overwhelmed or sometimes inadequate, burdened or underappreciated during the holidays.
  • For the New Year, START FRESH AND REDIRECT THAT EYE INWARD.
  • Be mindful and grateful for the things that are really meaningful.
  • Gratitude is a beautiful way of remembering the gifts you have around you. It is so powerful in combating stress.
