Are the holidays kicking your butt? Say no more, here are 5 tips to ensure a stress-less happy holiday season.
With all the end-of-the-year deadlines, never-ending shopping lists, traveling headaches, and family dramas, it is sometimes difficult to remember that the holidays are supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year.
1. Get Organized
Make detailed grocery lists and travel plans, update your calendar with holiday parties and other engagements, and set aside enough time to get all your errands out of the way.
2. Shop Online for email-able gift certificates.
We all know the struggle of forgetting someone on your holiday list. But online stores make it incredibly easy to purchase a gift card and have it sent directly to the recipient.

3. Eat Healthy
While there’s more than enough eggnog, honeybaked ham, gingerbread, and candy canes to feast on during the holidays, your mood and health are positively correlated with that quality of the foods you consume. So before you overindulge at the next holiday party, try eating a healthy snack beforehand so you don’t go overboard on those festive treats.
ALSO make sure you take along your Amari Water Bottle to stay hydrated!
4. Get Sleep
Between last minute Christmas prep and the New Years Eve Party Prep, we often feel short on time and sleep. But sleep plays an important role in keeping your stress levels low. Any health professional will say you should be getting at least 7-9 hours of sleep a night. If stress is keeping you up at night, do something that will relax or calm you, such as working out, meditation, or taking a warm bath.
5. Sweat it Out
Exercise is a great! Not only does it make your body stronger, it also stimulates your brain to produce endorphins, a chemical that can help improve your mood and reduce the feeling of being overwhelmed. Even a short walk around the neighborhood is enough to brighten your spirit and take your mind off stressful triggers.
