There’s no doubt the holidays are filled with joy and wonder. But it can also be stressful with halls to deck, trees to trim, social calendars filled to the brim and presents to wrap. Not to mention holiday menus to plan. So let’s take a moment and de-stress. But how? Is there a secret to managing holiday stress? It’s time to give the gift of calm during the holidays, so let’s take a look at five tips that will help!
It’s all too easy to say yes, especially during the holiday season when there are so many fun activities to choose from. But when we over-commit, it can leave us feeling frazzled instead of fulfilled. It’s possible to experience too much of a good thing. So be mindful, be moderate, and say no.
Seasonal Affective Disorder or SAD is a real thing. It’s brought on by the changing seasons when the days are shorter and the nights are longer, and there is a deprivation of light. If you live in a cold climate, the weather can cause us to spend more time indoors. When the sun sets at 5:30pm, it’s all too easy to climb into our pajamas and eat a meal filled with carbs, watch endless hours of TV, or TikTok and hit the snooze button. The winter blues or SAD can affect our mood and cast a pall over the holidays. Light therapy has been known to work. Or try an early morning walk when the sun is shining instead of late afternoon when the sun is setting.
If we want to stay calm during the holidays, a good night’s sleep is imperative especially when we’re managing holiday stress. dosist health to the rescue! dosist health is a globally recognized wellness company that empowers people to manage their health and happiness through naturally dose-controlled CBD. My favorite product from dosist health is their sleep blackberry lavender CBD+ gummy that I take about 15 minutes before bed. Let me tell you, I’m out like a light and sleep through the whole night. The sleep CBD+ gummies combine CBD & CBN, plus L-theanine and magnesium. These natural ingredients make it easier to get a good night’s sleep. The dosist health CBD+ gummies are also available in a stress-melting calm formula featuring a delicious lemon balm citrus flavor.

dosist health also offers topical relief products that are natural pain relief for tired and aching muscles. relief by dosist health comes in a topical roll-on, spray, or lotion, which are easy to use. The lotion doubles as hand lotion and truly helps ease the pain in my arthritic hands. One of my kiddos was in town, and I introduced him to dosist health. Guess whose medicine cabinet needs to be restocked?! He loved all of the products so much I sent him home with everything. If you still have a few people on your Christmas gift-giving list, I highly recommend dosist health.

We all know it’s all too easy to overeat during the holidays. There are so many tempting sweets and treats and delicious food everywhere this time of year it’s hard to say no. But if we stick to our regular eating timetables and keep healthy snacks on hand, it helps us make the right choices. Meal planning has been a lifesaver for me.
It’s okay if you don’t have time to bake cookies. Isn’t that why bakeries are located just around the corner and inside supermarkets? They make it easy to scoop up delicious treats. If your schedule has you running ragged, it’s okay to take shortcuts. They help with managing holiday stress.
