The holidays might represent family gatherings and present situations where we get to be around those who we cherish the most, but it’s also an undeniable fact that the holidays also represent stressful times for many of us. Getting just the right gift, in some cases driving through heavy traffic across town, and working extra hours to afford the ideal holiday experience can create stress and anxiety for anyone.
Below, Community Chiropractic & Acupuncture of Park Slope goes over a few ways to reduce or avoid stress and anxiety altogether this holiday season, so you can get back to that which is essential: spending time with loved ones.
Focus on Reasonably-Priced Gifts
Put a price limit on everyone you’re purchasing gifts for and try to get everything on sale. Try not to pay retail price on anything this season to save money.
Don’t Be the Hero
Instead of having the festivities at your house and creating a ton of work for yourself, let someone else throw the gathering. Keep your ears open for holiday parties and be an attendee this year.
Even though the holiday season is a time to give and be selfless, we are in better positions to give when we are well and happy. December is an important month to double-down on your self-care routine.

And have a happy, stress-free holiday season!
