How I Manage Holiday Stress

The holidays are in full swing and I cannot believe it is almost Christmas! For a lot of us, this time of year can be particularly stressful. Seeing certain family members can be hard, there is often a LOT to do, and generally, it just feels overwhelming.

Through learning to manage my anxiety, I always have my go-to’s for keeping it under control and I hope these can help you too!

8 TIPS FOR LESS STRESS

DO SELF CARE

I mean, this one is such a given with me and it is the major key of all keys when it comes to coping with my anxiety. If you need somewhere to start, these are my favorite ways to practice self-care.

LEARN TO SAY NO

There are SO many events and gatherings that happen during this time of year and just know that you don’t have to attend every single one! Don’t let FOMO or the urge to be a people pleaser get in the way of your well being. Also know that you don’t have to justify why you’re saying no, be unapologetic and remember taking care of yourself is a top priority.

GET SPIRITUAL

Charge your crystals, pull some tarot cards, and burn some sage! These are some of my favorite spiritual practices that just help keep me grounded.
