The holiday season can bring a bundle of mixed emotions. This year with many stressors in the world and here at home, it is especially important to take time to recharge. Time out helps us stay healthy physically and replenishes our inner fortitude.
Here are a few tips from the Mayo Clinic as reminders to help ensure you have a happy holiday.
Be realistic. You are only one person, and you can only do so much. Forget about perfection and relax while spending time with the company surrounding you.
Take a break. Don’t forget about your own needs. When was the last time you let yourself take a nap, go for a short walk, read a book or watch a funny movie. Laughing relaxes the whole body, and can relieve physical tension and stress.
Warm wishes for a wonderful holiday season!
