Tis the season! The holidays are a great time for being with family and friends and celebrating with treasured traditions passed down through the generations. It’s a time for gathering, enjoying each other’s company, and looking forward to all the opportunities a new year can bring.
Of course, the holidays are also probably the most stressful time of the year. The to-do list keeps expanding. There are presents to be bought and wrapped. Food that needs to be prepared for the great holiday feast. Some of us travel, which is always stressful at this time of year.
We all love the old traditions of the holidays. But we also often wish we could celebrate the holidays differently: with more calmness, quiet and relaxation.
When you get stressed out during the holidays, your body usually reacts with its ‘fight or flight’ response that can wear you down. Sleep is hard when your mind is full of things you need to do and take care of. Work and worry will also wear down your body and its abilities to fight back.
