Holiday stress is something that can get the best of us. According to psychologist Brianna Hammerman, employing a few simple tips should help you minimize its impact.
First, keep a routine. One of the biggest reasons you feel stress is because your routines are nonexistent. Maintaining regular schedules can be useful in managing chaotic times. Second, don’t get mired in details. Connecting with the big picture may prevent you from getting upset when little things go wrong. Finally, take time for yourself. Plan quiet time, go for a walk or doodle.
Fill your own cup, so you can fill others’.
