Staying Well This Festive Season
We know the festive season can play havoc on our health, but a few simple tips can help you maintain the wellness you've worked so hard for during the year without missing out on the fun!
1. Manage your stress
End of year deadlines, financial pressures and trying to work around family commitments & conflicts can cause a lot of extra stress at this time of year. Be mindful of your triggers and put in place strategies to manage stress before it all gets too much. Meditation, yoga, calming essential oils or an indulgent massage are all great ways to give your mind a break from the worry.
2. Just say No.
While it's tempting to say yes to every invitation, often this can end up leaving you over extended, exhausted and feeling resentful about having to attend events you really don't want to. Saying no to the events you're not that fussed about gives you more time for the ones you're really looking forward to. Time with family and friends is precious, give yourself the time to truly enjoy it rather than rushing from event to event just to "make an appearance".
