Preventing Holiday Stress
There is so much to love about the holiday season.
Usually, we get to spend quality time with family and friends, eat delicious food, and let’s not forget about all those amazing holiday movies!
As you know, this holiday season will be far different than most.
We may not be able to attend in-person events, but with a little creativity and flexibility, we can still have a fun and stress-free holiday season.

Make a Plan:
Even though family gatherings won’t be happening in person this year, planning is not off the table.
Shopping for gifts and decorating the tree sooner rather than later can prevent stress and anxiety.
No matter how prepared you are for anything in life, there will always be last-minute events that pop up and throw us off course.
Maybe your local grocery store will sell out of your favorite holiday cookies, or maybe your internet will glitch during your virtual dinner.
We know it’s easier said than done, but you have to remind yourself that life is unpredictable. When the going gets tough, try your best to be flexible.
Believe it or not, we can still keep our family traditions alive during COVID-19. We will just have to get a little creative.
You can still prepare a festive dinner, watch holiday movies and open presents as a family.
Who knows – you can even create some new traditions!
Practice Self Care:
The holidays are typically very busy. Everything from cooking, to shopping to sending cards can be a lot to take on.
Even though the month of December can be jam-packed, we can’t forget to take care of ourselves.
Getting enough sleep, practicing hobbies and eating right are key all year round and should never be put on hold.
We hope you all have a very happy holiday season and a healthy New Year.
Cheers to 2021!
