Three Steps to Avoid the Holiday Stress!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The Christmastime in the Philippines has been tagged as one of the most celebrated and joyous in the world. We have a lot to plan once the holiday season sets in.

From the scheduling of Christmas parties and family reunions to braving through the holiday crowd to buy gifts, Christmastime is also one of the busiest we will be. We might already be running our brain and body more than we should with trying to keep up with our list of to-do’s and responsibilities.

In a 2015 study conducted by Heathline, a consumer health information site based in San Francisco, California, the stressors listed by respondents were the financial demands of the season, negotiating the interpersonal dynamics of family, and maintaining personal health habits such as an exercise regimen.

Overcome these stressors by making sure you’re not spreading yourself too thin:

1. Learn how to prioritize. List down the things you need to do and give it deadlines.
2. Evaluate how you want to spend your time. Your calendar doesn’t need to be brimming full.
Know where you want to be instead of trying to be everywhere all the time.
3. Be realistic. Keep your goals and expectations for the holidays realistic.

 In midst of the hustle and bustle of this season, don’t forget that your health should be on top of the priority list or you will be spending the holidays feeling unwell. Give yourself and your loved ones the gift of wellness for the body and mind.

Wellness is more than not being sick, it’s a process of changing to become better that contributes to your overall lifestyle. Buy your friends and loved ones a time to relax and unwind this holiday season: avail our Christmas Gift Card in any Bioessence branch.
