Quick Tricks to Help You De-stress
Does this holiday season have you more stressed than usual ? Though the holidays are meant to be a time for relaxation, they can often produce the opposite effect in those who celebrate them. Yet no matter the source of your stress, or the time during which you experience it the most, you can implement easy and fast ways to calm your body and spirit. The simplest tactic to de-stress is to concentrate on your breathing. Inhale deeply through your nose and allow your lower abdomen to fill with air. Then slowly exhale through nose and empty your stomach cavity. To stave off stress, you can also find a friend to share a good laugh. If you have a few minutes to spare, you can take a brisk walk around the block as well to shake off holiday anxiety.
