De-Stress For The Holidays

The Morning Call (Allentown, PA), November 20, 2007

“For fast-acting relief, try slowing down.”
        ~ Lily Tomlin
Holiday season is upon us once again.  Planning ahead is one of the best ways to reduce your stress during this very busy time.
Do this by:
  • Prioritizing your activities and realizing that you won’t be able to do everything.  Which are most important to you?
  • Setting a realistic budget and sticking to it.  Money is a big source  of stress and many people tend to overspend on celebrations and gifts.
  • Managing your food and alcohol intake – and staying healthy.  Beware of overindulging on high-calorie foods and keep an eye on maintaining the proper nutritional balance.
  • Building some down time into your schedule.  Your body needs occasional rest breaks.
