This stress, obviously, can get in the way of everyone's enjoyment of the holiday. It can make us less patient, fostering more holiday conflict. It can make us more prone to holiday over-eating, which is part of why the gyms are so crowded in January as people resolve to change their habits. It can make us more prone to getting sick as it takes a toll on our immunity. It can also affect our sleep, which can cause us to be even more reactive to stress, and perpetuate the cycle of stress and lead to feelings of overwhelm.
This holiday season, why not give yourself the gift of staying healthy, taking care of yourself, getting more sleep, and really enjoying the holiday season? You'll enjoy everything more, and so will your friends and family. The following resources can help.
