The holiday season is picking up fast and while there’s a lot to look forward to, living in the moment can be overwhelming and stressful. For the times you are not ready to embrace the frantic work deadlines, freeway traffic or shopping lines, here are a few activities I enjoy to help keep the Grinch at bay.
- Getting Outside! While the weather isn’t always optimal, breathing fresh air and seeing the Fall colors never hurts.
- Drinking Some Tea! Make yourself a cup of your favorite tea and enjoy the warmth in your hands that you cannot properly appreciate during the summer months.
- Play Some Music! And when I say play, I mean play it as loud as you can and scream the lyrics. While your ears may not appreciate the beating, studies show that listening to music, especially when it’s loud, increases your dopamine levels and stimulates brain activity.
Take a few minutes out of every day to do the thing that helps you destress, whether that’s kickboxing or reading, make time to take care of yourself!
