Tips to Prevent Holiday Stress

Try these alternatives: • Donate to a charity in someone’s name. • Give homemade gifts.

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. ImportantNote:Don’tforgetyourexercise or physical therapy programs. During the holidays when you are feeling stress is when it will benefit you the most! Past Patients Save With A Rise Rehab Gym Membership For a small fee discharged patients can continue their exercises and continue to receive guidance and advice from therapists in the Rise Rehab gyms.

Be realistic. The holidays don’t have to be perfector just like lastyear.As familieschange 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 howmuch money you can afford to spend.Then stick to your budget. Don’t try to buy happiness with an avalanche of 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. S aying 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.
