Dealing with Holiday Stress

Dealing with Holiday Stress
You may enjoy hosting holiday gatherings or entertaining out-of-town guests. But sometimes, stress can crash your party and ruin your weight management plan. Here are some simple ways to help you get back your balance – and handle whatever the holidays throw at you.
·       Unplug. Take a break from checking your phone and email. Instead, enjoy a long bath.
·       Listen to music. Turn on your favorite songs. Music has been shown to lower mild to moderate depression, anxiety, and even pain. Dancing releases endorphins (happy hormones) into your body.
·       Move. Go for a walk or work out at the gym or at home. Exercise is a great stress reliever.
·       Laugh it off. Laughing relaxes your body and clears your mind. Feeling anxious? Watch a comedy or spend time with a funny friend. A good belly laugh will wash your tension away.
