Stress, the Holidays & your health!

Yes, it's that time of year where you are running around, trying to get everything done before the Holiday arrives. You are trying to get all the gifts, decorate and clean the house, and make sure that everything is "just perfect" for the Holidays.

But, how stressed are you feeling right now? Does the hype of the holidays bring you a lot of stress as well? And how does that stress affect your overall health and well-being?

What can you do about it? Well, first of all, don't do things because you feel obligated to -- do things because you really want to! I know, you are probably saying "yeah, that's easier said, then done!" Well, YOU are the one that is ultimately in charge of what you choose to do around the Holidays. And anyway, is buying gifts and decorating the house what "it" is all about?

I think the Holiday Season is all about love and giving to others less fortunate. I think it is about smiling at others and giving them the gift of happiness. I think it is about remembering our loved ones in our thoughts and telling them that we love them. Imagine if you just gave a compliment to your spouse and told them they looked great today. When was the last time you did that?

Stress around the Holidays is something that you create for yourself. Take a good hard look at what you REALLY want to do this Holiday Season and ask yourself "Am I doing the things that bring me great JOY or am I only doing things because I feel obligated to?"

Your health is relying on you following your passion and joys and doing what you love.

Give yourself that gift this Holiday Season!
