How to deal with Christmas stress
Christmas - we all love it (and yet we hate it). Well hate may be too strong a word but although its lovely seeing the faces of your little ones light up on Christmas morning - its a long haul to get you there so how do we deal with Christmas stress?
Aside from the usual ever increasing present list - I used to dread when the Argos catalogue came into the store, or when the Christmas adverts start on the TV, it can feel like a mountain to climb to get everything done - and keep your sanity too!
So what do we do? We are racing around to find that "Elf on a Shelf' still in the store, and how do we keep that little elf busy for 24 days!!??? For some ideas on that check out this great page HERE by the way - some very funny ideas!
We would all like to get more family time to enjoy the run up to the big day - maybe Christmas shopping at the Christmas markets, or some ice skating, or a pantomime. All this on top of the usual 'so how am I going to pay for all this?' question too.
Although a little day to day stress can be good for you too much can cause anxiety, sleeplessness, headaches or even stomach pains. Longer term this can affect our immune system, blood pressure or cause tension pain in various parts of the body so no wonder we are always exhausted and ill after Christmas.
So although we love Christmas what can we do to cut down on the stress and make it enjoyable for everyone (including you)!? Well taking a little time out for yourself is always a cracking idea. Sometimes you just need to treat yourself to keep you on track. Sometimes you just need to relax and restore your energy levels.
