Quick Tips: Reduce Holiday Stress

Quick Tips: Reduce Holiday Stress

With a little effort you can breeze through holiday stress triggers:

Foods To Avoid: Many of us have foods we know we can’t eat (wheat, sugar, dairy, caffeine, soy). They trigger energy spikes, induce cravings and affect our mood. So what’s a holiday reveler to do? Be disciplined: sit out cookies, cakes and alcohol for at least one party.

Accept Your Cluttered Home:
Entertaining in a cluttered home can be stressful. Kindly remind yourself that guests are not there to judge – they’ve arrived for drinks and cheer! Do cursory dust-busting, toss blankets over piles and wipe surfaces with citric cleanser. Abundant candles, bowls of snacks and a dazzling outfit will keep visiting eyes on the prize (you!). 

Be Charitable: In this economy, the need to help others is greater than ever. Make gifting easy with a charitable donations on behalf of family and friends and save the presents for the kids. Visit for a list of organization, or purchase gift cards so recipients can pick for themselves.
