Turn Holiday Stress Into Holiday Bliss By Carmel Cosmetic and Plastic Surgeons on December 05, 2022


The approaching holiday season presents unique challenges. With increasingly long to-do lists, a full social calendar and expectations that are often higher than they should be, this time of year is notorious for adding to everyday stress levels.

But there’s no need to let the holidays make you frenzied and frantic. Not only does stress reduce your enjoyment of the season’s festivities, but it’s also bad for your physical and mental health.



I came across these wonderful tips from John Hopkins Medicine to "de-stress" your holidays using four mindful practices:

  • Accept Imperfection

           Good can be good enough. It’s OK if it’s not perfect. Imperfection is healthy and normal.

  • Don't Lose Sight of What Really Counts

           Don't let the hustle and bustle of the holidays ruin your day. If you’re frustrated by the long grocery line you’re standing in, remember that it is just a long grocery line — nothing more.

  • Respond With Kindness 

           You can’t change how others act during the stresses of the holiday season, but you can change how you respond to situations.

Rethink Your Resolutions 

           Start by keeping your resolutions small and be kind to yourself.

We here at Carmel Cosmetic and Plastic Surgeons wish you a joyous and blissful holiday season.
