The Holidays Are Here!
It’s that time of year again. Christmas is just 2 weeks away and everyone has one thing in common. We are all STRESSED! There is a million reasons to be stressed this time of year everything from shopping for gifts to work is just a little bit more taxing right now.
What people don’t realize is that this stress plays a huge toll on your health. It isn’t coincidence that flu season coincides with the holidays. When we are stressed our immune system is more susceptible to illness, we become more fatigued, and we can become depressed. All of these things can be prevented by learning to cope with stress in a better way. So I want to give you some solutions to help you handle the stress of the seasons.
1)Take ten minutes a day and go into a silent room. When you do this the room should be dark and you shouldn’t have your cell phone or any other technology with you. Studies have shown that doing this will actually refresh you for the second half of the day making you feel less stressed and more energized.
2)Create a stop doing list. Make a list of all the things that are making you stressed. Now, look at that list and see what things you are not getting anything out of. We all have things that stress us out, but we continue to do them even though they really do not benefit us. These are the things you should scratch off your list and stop doing!
3)Start a yoga or meditation practice. Both of these practices have been shown to significantly reduce stress and are great for your health! If you haven’t started doing yoga or meditating yet now is the time!
Most of all despite the stress of the holidays remember to enjoy the company of those you love! At Peak Potential Chiropractic we wish you all a very merry Christmas!
