Sharing ideas on how to wander through the holidays stress free.
When November and December hit we're often feeling mixed emotions from the fact that we're about to close yet another year and the excitement of what the holidays bring. What should be the most joyous time of year can quickly become fraught with never ending to-do lists and little time to do the things you love. We wanted to share with you some ideas on how to wander through the holidays stress free so you can look ahead to 2019 with excitement for what lies ahead!
We strongly believe that the best cure to holiday stress (or stress any time of year) is to get outside and burn some energy. Whether that be a hike with your loved one or you just grab the pup and go, the crisp air in your lungs will liven your spirit right up. We also suggest hitting the slopes or strapping on some snow shoes for a fun way to forget about everything that needs to get done waiting for you at home.
Our next suggestion is to put down the technology and grab a good book. Though we love the social space that technology can provide, it can also quickly lead to mindless scrolling for hours, FOMO of another's persons current adventures and unnecessary comparisons. Instead of seeing what everyone else is up to, get lost in a book that takes your mind on its own adventure.
Our FAVORITE way to de-stress is to grab a group of friends and just go play! We can guarantee that the holiday season will try and keep every minute of every day busy, but sometimes you just have to throw caution to the wind, play hooky and go have some fun with your best pals.
After you warm up from your snowy adventures, pour everyone a cup of hot cocoa and share some of your favorite holiday memories growing up. They're usually pretty hilarious!
Take some time this holiday season to step back from the craziness of it all and give yourself permission to truly soak it all in and enjoy it. Call up friends you haven't seen in month for a beer at a local pub, stop by a loved ones for a game of scrabble or better yet, do something just for yourself like staying in your cozy lounge wear all day for a holiday classics movie marathon.
