Reducing Your Stress Throughout the Holidays

By Brandi Swieter 

The holidays are supposed to be a time of joy. For many, the season is a dreaded time in which stress is at an all time high. Reducing stress throughout the holidays should be the focus instead of worrying about all the tasks to accomplish. 

Gift Cards for All

Too many people stress themselves out over whether or not they're gifting the perfect present. They spend hours deciding what to get for who. Even more time is spent wrapping up the gifts and making them look perfect in their packages. Gift cards are one way to solve that problem. Purchasing gift cards for everyone on the Christmas list takes the decision making and extra time wrapping out of the equation. It allows the gift receiver to go and make their own purchases for items they truly want and not things others think they might like. 

Continue Your Routine

Individuals tend to get away from their normal routine when the holidays arrive. This may mean skipping a workout to tackle shopping or decorating instead or even going to bed later because they were staying up getting wrapping finished. A one-time occurrence isn't going to do much harm, but deviating from the plan often can be a major trigger for stress that will leave people feeling overwhelmed and unlike themselves quickly. It's best to fit these extra activities into any spare time left over after still completing the normal plans. 

Minor Decorating Only

The entire house doesn't have to be lit up for Christmas. It may be fun to watch the lights flicker and shine at another house, but that house doesn't have to be yours. Minor decorating can help put a person in the Christmas spirit without making them feel stressed or overwhelmed with all the work involved. A wreath on the door, a strand of lights wrapped around the porch, and a decorated tree inside are all it takes to bring the holidays into the home. 

A Visit to the Chiropractor

Stress is inevitable throughout the year, and even more so during the holidays. This extra tension can lead to pain in the body. A visit to the chiropractor can be just what a person needs throughout the season to reduce their stress levels and feel better overall. Joint restrictions can be removed. Tension can be eased. The person receiving treatment can experience a better holiday without pain as yet another stressor on the list. 

Anyone looking to reduce their stress levels this holiday season can visit The Joint Chiropractic. Walk-in hours are available for those who may need to stop in after work or before their holiday shopping.
