How to Beat Your Holiday Exhaustion
By Genevieve Cunningham
The holiday season is so exciting. But as high as the excitement level gets, the exhaustion level gets even higher. This is the time of year when we’re all on the go. We’re shopping and cleaning and cooking and entertaining guests. The fatigue that comes from this storm of events is overwhelming. To prepare yourself for the holiday exhaustion ahead, take a look at these simple tips.
Get Plenty of Rest
Sometimes the only real way to get relief from fatigue is to get more rest. Set up a good bedtime starting today, and do your best to stick with it as much as you possibly can. You’ll have to stray from your bedtime multiple times throughout the holiday season; it’s inevitable. To compensate, try to make time for naps, or at least some downtime on the days when you don’t get enough at night. But if you don’t prepare for more sleep now, you’ll be drained in a big way by the time the holidays are over.
If you want to fight exhaustion, now is the perfect time to use your planning skills. Plan your shopping trips. Plan your visits to relatives. Plan your sleeping arrangements ahead of time. This can save you some stress, worry, and quite a bit of time on those last minute plans. While a few last-minute glitches are sure to happen, the better planned you are, the less exhaustion you’ll cause yourself.
Get Chiropractic Care
Another great way to fight exhaustion is to keep your body in the best condition possible. This is a great time to add chiropractic care to the mix in your routine. Chiropractors keep your spine properly aligned. But why does this even matter? When the vertebrae of the spine become misaligned, it can cause pain, general stiffness, an inability to concentrate, insomnia, and many other negative side effects. All of these can wreak havoc on your body, leaving it in a constant state of exhaustion. As chiropractors correct these problem areas, it can bring some relief to these symptoms and some energy back to your body and mind.
