How to Beat Holiday Stress

How to Beat Holiday Stress

The holidays are almost here, and while there are lots of festivities to look forward to, it can also be a stressful time for many people. Besides going to work and taking care of your family, you also have lots of shopping and planning to do, as well as parties to attend. While the holidays are a lot of fun, be sure to make time to take care of yourself.

How to Beat Holiday Stress

Get sound sleep. I recommend 7-8 hours of sleep every night.

Make time to relax and wind down.

Stay active and exercise often.

Stick to a healthy eating plan with vegetables, fruit, nuts, good fats, and lean meat.

Drink purified water throughout the day.

Avoid sugar and processed foods.

Take a hot bath with Epsom salts (which contain magnesium that relaxes your muscles).

Turn off your TV and cell phone and take a break from the news and social media.

Put away your cell phone one hour before sleep and leave that time for reflection.

Go for a brisk walk outside in nature.

Sit still and take in long, deep breaths.


Make time to laugh!

Watch a funny movie or get lost in a good book.

Listen to soothing music or calming sounds of the ocean waves or rain.

Spend time with your cherished pets who love you unconditionally.

Read the Bible or review some of your favorite Bible verses. Pray.

Take vitamins and supplements that can help you de-stress, such as magnesium and inositol.

Try my new calming formula, Tranquil, which contains Hemp Oil Powder, L-Theanine and Inositol to help you decrease your stress and anxiety.

If you are experiencing a more than normal amount of stress, be sure to have a qualified doctor evaluate your hormone status. Hypothyroidism and adrenal fatigue can contribute to stress and anxiety, as well as low progesterone levels, too. One of the best ways you can support your body during stressful, busy times is to make sure your hormones are at optimal levels. Take my Symptom Checker to find out if you could be suffering from hormone decline and imbalance.
