Beat the post finals crash with these de-stressers
As much as we would like to think that coming home for the holidays means automatic rest & relaxation, we all know that can be far from the truth.
These tips & tricks can help you dodge those stressful questions thrown your way at Christmas brunch this year.
Take a Bath
Check Out Aromatherapy
Aromatherapy (essential oils) has recently become the go-to source for relaxation, healing and stress relief. Different scents/mixtures work better for other people; this article may be helpful with seeing what works best for you.
Spend Time with Friends
Friendships are completely voluntary relationships, therefore, we need to take advantage of being home and spending time with friends we may not get to see on a day-to-day basis.
One of the best ways to de-stress over the holiday break is to refocus and give back. You can spread the joy this season by getting involved with local volunteer centers or food banks in your hometown.
Winter break means no school (: SO it’s essential to soak up alllll 8+ hours of sleep each night. Rest won’t just benefit you, but those around you as well.
Put Down the Phone
Hang up & hang out — you’ll thank yourself later for making an effort to be more present
Go For a Hike … Literally
Despite popular belief, exercise can help you to replenish your body after tackling that long list of holiday to-do’s.
Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays
(& don’t forget to add some selfcare to your holiday schedule)
