How to De-Stress around the Holidays

The best ways to reduce holiday stress levels & focus on the important things this December

The holidays can be a great time to appreciate what you’ve accomplished and experienced in the past year. It can be the perfect time to celebrate family and friends and show your love for those who you’re closest too. The holidays are a time for good food, good company, and reflection. Unfortunately, they can also be a time of increased stress.

Why are the holidays so stressful? Maybe it’s because it’s the end of another year and marking the passing of time can be overwhelming for some. There’s also a lot of pressure we put on ourselves to be our best selves at this time of the year. 

That could be for family gatherings, with some family members that you don’t get along with all that well. That could be for romantic couples, putting the unneeded pressure on themselves to find perfect Christmas gifts for each other. Or it could be putting pressure on yourself to come up with the perfect New Year’s resolutions and follow through with them. Sometimes the stress simply comes from an increase in crowds and holiday travel.  

Because most people have similar mindsets and/or problems when it comes to the holidays, it creates a frenzied and rushed energy. Everyone feels like they don’t have enough time, and we often forget to take a moment to just relax and think about where our stress is really coming from. 

We wanted to put together a list of our favorite recommendations from top bloggers to de-stress this holiday season. One less person that’s stressed this December means less negative energy being put forth during the holidays, and that’s always a good thing!
