Holistic Zone - Reduce Stress This Christmas

Keep Calm – Its Christmas

How to have a stress-free Christmas, including avoiding family arguments and sharing the

Christmas is a time for relaxing, having fun and family get-togethers, but it can also have its pressures

You are generally stuck in the house, the kids are overexcited, there’s the tree to decorate, presents
to buy and wrap
, and food buy and cook.

It’s no wonder the festive feeling can fizzle out. There is evidence that Christmas puts a strain on
families. Statistics show that January is the busiest month for divorce solicitors!

Make sure this Christmas doesn’t become a day to remember for all the wrong reasons. Try to follow
some of these tips:

  • If there have been any family rows during the year, resolve them. Tell the people you argued with that you're looking forward to seeing them. Ask if you can get together before Christmas to talk about whatever problem you had.
  • Plan the day and share out the jobs that need to be done. Don't slave away for hours on your own and feel like people have taken advantage of you.
  • Discuss your plans with others, including any children who will be there, so that you can listen to their ideas and wishes for the day. Then you can come up with a celebration which includes things that please everyone. Have a timetable for Christmas Day so that you don’t all sit around for hours doing nothing.
  • Try to make sure you won't be spending a lot of time with a difficult person or someone you don’t get along with. Diffuse some relaxing oils that will de-stress you all and give a lovely scented atmosphere to your home. Try some of the following essential oils
  • doTERRA Serenity® - Calming Blend
  • Lavender
  • Elevation - Joyful Blend
  • Bergamot

To name a few. All oils can be purchased at https://www.mydoterra.com/holisticzone/#/

  • Don’t drink too much. Drinking excessively is never a good idea. Find out more on safer drinking.
  • Children can get overexcited, so plan a lovely long walk for a change of scene and some fresh air. Everybody will feel better and pleasantly tired instead of irritably tired.

Wishing you all a very happy and stress free Christmas and New Year!
