Greetings Fabulous One!

I hope your holidays are being filled with good health and cheer, and 2024 will be your most fabulous year!

Maybe it’s all the sparkling Christmas lights, but I feel especially electric with the holiday spirit this year. I’ve added a few of my favorite holiday hits to my workout playlist and have been rockin’ around the Christmas tree all month! 

I always have a blast this time of year, but if I’m being real, the holidays are not always filled with cheer. 55% of people say that Christmas is the most stressful holiday of the year, and they’re not wrong. Christmas can get stressful.

With rising costs, it’s tough to afford to provide that perfect, magical Christmas your family deserves. Between all your obligations and responsibilities, finding time to shop for gifts, cook extravagant meals, decorate your home, and go to so many different events seems impossible. Then, in all the rush of commercialism and hype of the holiday season, the holidays lose their real meaning. Worst of all, sometimes you don’t get to spend the holidays with your loved ones.

All of this can add up to stress, and that stress can lead to some serious health consequences. 

To protect your health, you need a strategy to keep the stress at bay. Here is what I do to get control of holiday stress and have holiday fun instead:

  1. Start With Rest: If you are feeling the holiday stress, take time out to recover, recoup, and recharge. Rest helps us deal with stress and it protects your health. If you feel pressure to overcommit, remember it’s okay to decline invitations or requests that add stress.
  2. Do Less: Doing less does not mean you have to give up doing the holiday most. It just means finding strategies like simplifying, delegating, or automating to reduce your holiday chore lists. Make a holiday to-do list and prioritize your tasks to manage your time effectively.
  3. Stay Blessed: The true spirit of the holidays is all about spending time with your family and celebrating abundance. When you focus on your holiday traditions and blessings, it’s easier to let go of the added pressure and stress.
  4. Master The Mess: When you give yourself the right tools, like a healthy body, mind, and soul, you build resilience where stress bounces off of you. When you master yourself, you can easily manage all of the mess and stress of the holidays.

To master holiday stress, remember: Start with rest, do less, stay blessed, and master the mess! 

A meaningful way to master the mess is by supporting your physical health. If you’re having trouble figuring out how to do that why not book a Take Back Your Life One Hour Strategy Session with me so I can help you combat the stress and set you up for success.

Remember: Stress is a natural part of the holidays. Having a strategy to master the holiday mess will help you overcome the holiday stress.

I wish you and yours a very Happy Holiday and a very Prosperous New Year!
