“You can tell a lot about a person by the way they handle three things: a rainy day, lost luggage and tangled Christmas tree lights.” – Maya Angelou
With all of the joy, glitter, and fairy lights of the Christmas season also comes a level of stress and pressure that’s unprecedented during the rest of the year. Even if you’re in a great place emotionally, financially, and mentally, the holiday season is bound to present some challenges that aren’t present during the rest of the year.
The first step to reducing holiday anxiety is to take the pressure off yourself. If you’re setting unrealistic, high expectations for yourself and those around you over this season, you’re more likely to feel let down and stressed throughout the entire period.
Second, create a routine that’s centered around self care, as this can minimize your stress and anxiety.
Next, make sure you set boundaries with family and friends around this time of year. It’s easy to over schedule yourself and feel obligated to accept every invitation that comes your way. Learn to say, "No, thank you."
Lastly, treat yourself to some Christmas cheer with some ZO Skin Health products or a bit of cosmetic surgery.
