How to Deal With the Holiday Emotional Rollercoaster

By Donna Stark

The end of the year is well-known for its festive holiday celebrations and snowy days and nights, but that isn't all it is known for. It's also known as a time when emotions run high. If your work, health, family, or upcoming travels put you on an emotional rollercoaster these last few weeks of the year, it may help to know you aren't alone. In fact, many people find themselves completely burnt out by year's end. Fortunately, your local chiropractors understand the demands of this season and they are here to help you get through them. Take a look at what they suggest you do when dealing with your stress or anxiety.

Holiday Stress

There's a lot of joy to be shared during the holidays, but sometimes, that joy can be hard to find. Especially, if you are the main supplier of it! These next few weeks can be an extremely stressful and emotionally draining time so be sure to take care of yourself. Here are a few ideas on how to find the balance you need in order to manage the days ahead with ease.

  • Engage in something you enjoy every single day, no matter how insignificant it may seem
  • Find something to laugh at and then share it with others for a double dose of benefits
  • Avoid negativity, pick your battles, and expend your energy wisely
  • Identify what you need and enlist the help of others
  • Prioritize healthy food, daily exercise, and quality sleep

Holiday Anxiety

The feelings associated with anxiety, such as helplessness, restlessness, irritation, and worry can be debilitating because they can all make a good day go bad and a bad day get worse. And although it can be hard to manage these feelings, there are some strategies that may be able to help. Check them out below.

  • Accept that you cannot control everything or that some things just don't need to be controlled in the first place
  • Maintain a positive attitude and try to engage in calming activities
  • Learn how to identify the things or moments that trigger you
  • Share the burden of anxiety by telling others what you are going through
  • Cultivate a strong support system

A Great End to the Year

It's hard to not let your emotions get in the way of your holiday celebrations, but with the suggestions above, and the help from your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic, you may be able to balance them out a bit and end the year on a high note! Good luck and happy holidays!
