Spending time with family, shopping to get everyone presents, eating out and sleeping less are all things that can lead to extra stress over the holiday season.

For some people the holidays can cause added stress to your life and affect your well-being. Here are some simple tips to help you manage stress over the holiday season.
Stress cannot only cause havoc on your life, but also your body. Stress can be a reason that you are not losing weight and have many other negative side effects. Try some of these stress-reducing techniques today.

Take a walk. Leisure walking is a great way to reduce cortisol levels and a great relaxation technique.

Meditate. Take a few minutes today to spend some time in meditation. Sitting still for a few minutes and focusing on your breathe, will help to center yourself and make you feel calmer.

Get a massage or do self-massage. Massage allows the brain to calm down and focus on feeling good.

Take a time out. Sometimes adults need time out too. Take a few minutes in your stressful day to stop what you are doing, take a few deep breaths, clear your mind and when you feel like you are relaxed go back to your day. Listen to relaxing music. Just by listening to music can help you to reduce stress levels and relax.
