Make this holiday season stress-free

The holidays can bring out feelings of joy, but the season can also be quite stressful. Here are some tips for creating a stress-free holiday season.

Let go of ‘perfect’

When family and friends spend extended time together, stressful events are sure to arise. Approach them with a sense of humor and flexibility. Take time to strengthen relationships and communication. Focus on the things that are important like togetherness, and not on material things.

Make time for yourself

Your social calendar and list of to-dos may be full, but it’s still important to take time for yourself. Schedule self-care time by taking yourself to lunch, taking a yoga class, or just setting aside time to enjoy a favorite holiday movie.

Ask for help

Don’t go it alone. If you’ve got to host a dinner or been put in charge of a family or work event, ask others to help. Divide tasks so everyone has a role and contribution. This not only reduces the burden on each person,  it makes everyone feel valued.
