We are sure the halls are decked with boughs of holly and the presents are beautifully wrapped under the Christmas tree. Now, all we need is to prepare the food and last minute holiday add-ons. In a matter of days, the much anticipated eve will arrive and before you know it, it is time to say goodbye to another year.
This is it!
Now, do not let the coming festivities stress you out. Let us help you relax and enjoy the last few days of the year.
Ignite your Senses
Lighting a festive scented candle doesn’t just help set the holiday mood, it is also a great way to de-stress. Choose candles with stress-quenching properties like cinnamon and bergamot. You may also use a scent diffuser or oil burner to spread good vibes in your home. You may check out festive candles in this link.
Christmas Classics Marathon
If you like watching movies, watching holiday flicks is a great way to unwind with your family. All you need is some popcorn, a box of pizza, a warm cup of cocoa and you are good to go. All that’s left to do is decide who will be the master of the remote control and what movie the family will watch.
Chomp your Stress Away
If you are an emotional eater but at the same time on the lookout of tipping the scale, munching on some gum may be the best way to satisfy your oral gratification. It doesn’t mean that you will not enjoy all the holiday food and the freshly baked goodies. You can help yourself to extra servings but chew on a gum to help curb your appetite. It is a great way to relieve stress too!
DIY Spa at Home
Go on. Set the mood for a nice and relaxing bath. Light the candles. Open that bottle of wine and enjoy sips (if not the entire bottle!) and let the warm bath melt the stress away. You may also do your own at-home facial and pamper yourself. There's a lot of personal skin care solutions for you so that you don't have to get in your car and even drive to a spa. Yes, you deserve it.
You can give your skin a nice buffing with an at-home microdermabrasion device and let your family and guests figure out why you are glowing despite the hectic and stressful holiday preparations!
There are many other ways to relax and be stress-free. It all boils down to you, honestly. Do not let the holidays stress you up. It is a season of merry-making and it is best spent happily with your loved ones.
