“HOW THE HECK DID THIS HAPPEN!??!?”... If you’re like me, this question bombards your psyche at the start of each holiday season like an alarm clock that “dings”, “dongs”, “beeps”, and “blaps” year after year ultimately confirming your suspicions that yes, the holiday advertisements have started earlier this year than the last.
The fact is, the Holiday’s can leave you with something more serious than an extra notch in your belt, they can leave you with a major case of Holiday Stress. Whether it’s stress due to increased financial commitments, pressure from family & friends, feelings of sadness or loneliness, or just the feeling of being overwhelmed by your ever-growing to-do list. The bottom line is that just because you are stressed by the holiday season doesn’t mean you have to be!
Below are MinxNY’s 3 Healthy Habits for Combating Holiday Stress:
Try using Positive Words of Affirmation to get you through the thick of your holiday stress this year and remind yourself that ultimately, “your happiness is one of the greatest gifts you can give to others”.
Whether you decide to do some extra laps around the mall or hit the gym more than usual, staying physically active has been proven to reduce stress and promote happiness.
These days there are plenty of over the counter & doctor prescribed stress relief options, but the truth is that many of them can leave you with unwanted side-effects, so that is why MinxNY recommends Essential Oils as a Natural Alternative. Essential oils such as Lavender & Rose oil have been proven to reduce stress, anxiety, and promote a good night's sleep. There are different ways to enjoy Essential Oils, one of which is through our MinxNY Essential Oil Infused Slipper socks! All of which are infused with Essential Oils such as Lavender, Shea Butter, Rose, Mint Eucalyptus, and Cinnamon, each oil providing the user with a specific therapeutic benefit.
A little Holiday Stress is inevitable, but that doesn’t mean it has to rule your entire Holiday Season. Let’s get happy, jolly, and joyful! Let’s take back The Most Wonderful Time of The Year!
