Tips to Prevent Holiday Stress
Patient Success Spotlight
Be realistic. The holidays don’t have to be perfect or just like last year. As families change and grow, traditions and rituals often change as well. Choose a few to hold on to, and be open to creating new ones. For example, if your adult children can’t come to your house, find new ways to celebrate together, such as sharing pictures, e-mails or videos. Stick to a budget. Before you go gift and food shopping, decide how much money you can afford to spend. Then stick to your budget. Don’t try to buy happiness with an avalanche of gifts. Try these alternatives: • Donate to a charity in someone’s name. • Give homemade gifts.
Plan ahead. Set aside specific days for shopping, baking, visiting friends and other activities. Plan your menus and then make your shopping list. And make sure to line up help for party prep and cleanup. Learn to say no. Saying yes when you should say no can leave you feeling resentful and overwhelmed. Friends and colleagues will understand if you can’t participate in every project or activity. Don’t let the holidays become something you dread. Instead, take steps to prevent the stress and depression that can descend during the holidays. Learn to recognize your holiday triggers, such as financial pressures or personal demands, so you can combat them before they lead to a meltdown.
I feel I have returned to a “normal” lifestyle. The staff is very personable and pleasant! “Rebound has played the MAJOR role in helping me regain my balance, ability to function and confidence to move normally after a sudden onset of vestibular neuronitis. Long after resolution of the acute onset of symptoms, Rebound staff patiently and expertly led me through exercises to improve my ability to move and the improvement has been great! It has been many months of very slow, steady improvement, but the result is very satisfying! I feel I have returned to a “normal” lifestyle. The staff is very personable and pleasant! They are great!” - Patty
