Five Tips for Eliminating Holiday Stress

By: Noel Jameson

The holidays are right around the corner, and you know what that means? Food, fun and festivities?

Not quite yet.

You have a bit of holiday stress you need to go through before you earn the right to kick up your heels and enjoy yourself.

That being said, holiday stress doesn't have to be overwhelming and you should do what you can to keep your stress level to a minimum.

Here are five easy ways to cut your holiday stress in ten minutes or less.

1. A Five-Minute Massage

Many of us tend to carry stress in our necks and one of the best ways to relieve holiday stress is with a quick neck rub. If you don't have someone nearby to work out the kinks in your neck, you may want to invest in one of the neck massagers you can find in most health and beauty departments.

2. A Quick Aromatherapy Fix

Aromatherapy has been used for relaxation purposes throughout the centuries and it's really quite effective for calming one's nerves.

If you want to significantly reduce the holiday stress you've been feeling, keep some essential oils around and diffuse the scents into your home or take a few sniffs straight from the bottle. You'll be surprised how quickly your nerves settle down.

Some great essential aromatherapy scents for calming stress include lavender, jasmine and chamomile.

3. Read a Comic

Laughter is a great stress reliever. Not only does it lift us up emotionally, it actually produces chemicals in our brain that make us feel better.

Pick up a comic book or some other humorous literature and take a ten-minute reading break when the holiday stress starts creeping up on you.

4. Deep Relaxation

When things get stressful, sometimes you have to just lock yourself in a room and get away from it all. Deep relaxation is a great way to regroup from a holiday stress attack.

Go in a quiet room, close the door, get comfortable, close your eyes and just relax. Breathe deep and free your mind. In ten minutes, you'll feel like a new person and your holiday stress will seem like a distant memory.

5. Use Homeopathic Stress Remedies

Homeopathic stress remedies have been proven to provide effective holiday stress relief in just seconds.

One of the most popular homeopathic stress remedies is called Rescue Remedy and it's put out by Bach Flower Essences.

Just one or two drops under your tongue and the holiday stress to just melt away.

You can pick any of the five holiday stress reduction methods -- and feel better in ten minutes or less! Happy Holidays.
