Four Tips to Reduce Holiday Stress

The holidays might be “the most wonderful time of the year,” but they are often a bit stressful. Holiday stress is extremely common and can be exacerbated by many things. Since stress can have a profound effect on your physical and mental health, you need to keep it under control. As your chiropractor in Kent, we want you to stay healthy and enjoy the holidays. So here are four tips to help you deal with holiday stress from the team at Stillwell Family Chiropractic and Massage.

Acknowledge Your Holiday Stress

If you try to deny that you are stressed, you cannot properly process it. So take some time to be honest with yourself. You can enjoy the holidays while still having anxiety, it doesn’t have to be all or nothing. Acknowledging the stress is the first step in managing it.

Get Some Exercise

Stick to your exercise routine as well as you can throughout the holiday season. Exercise is a great stress buster and it will keep your energy up. If you have to break out of your routine, still try to get some movement in whenever possible. Brisk walks or yoga can be done with minimal preparation.

Avoid Excess Drugs and Alcohol

The holidays are a great time to indulge, but too much indulgence can lead to more stress. So take some breaks from the holiday cocktail drinks and keep your body hydrated with water. You will sleep better and have more energy during the day.

Reduce Muscle Tension

This is something that our chiropractor can help with. Chiropractic care for children is also an option if your child is dealing with muscle tension. Reduced muscle tension relaxes the body, which also relaxes the mind. A relaxed mind can deal with stress much more easily. So if you can, see our chiropractor during the holidays.
