5 Ways To De-Stress During The Holidays
Dec 16, 2013 - by Michelle
A recent survey of more than 14,000 people by TripAdvisor revealed that about 40% of people will travel during the holidays?
People are driving, flying and making plans for family from out of town to join. This means added stress for many of us on many different levels.
There is much we can do to make sure this holiday season is pleasurable and peaceful, regardless of what we are doing this holiday season.
5 Tips On How To Reduce Stress Throughout Your Holiday Season
1. Practice Yoga, Meditation and Mindfulness
AKA non-judgmental awareness of experiences in the present moment. According to a recent study published in Health Psychology, Mindfulness Meditation literally lowers the stress hormone, it helps us process our emotions in a more healthy way, and it helps us feel more compassionate towards others. All these come in healthy when you are driving in heavy holiday traffic or in case someone steals your parking spot at the mall. Tai chi and Qigong are other forms of mindful movement practices with loads of benefits.
