‘Tis the Season of Stress

Are you looking ahead to the next few weeks and wondering how you will make it through the holiday season? With all the decorating, shopping, cooking and baking, entertaining, religious services and festive gatherings, this time of year can feel both hectic and stressful.

Being aware of what causes the most stress can help mitigate some of the pressure. Ask yourself, who do you want to connect with? Do all these social events need to include heavy food and drink? Are you obligated to clean and decorate before hosting guests and activities? Stress often happens when you feel a resistance to something you don’t want to partake in or simply don’t have enough time for.

            Imagine gathering your family and friends for a holiday meal that you have spent hours preparing. But everyone is slow coming to the table, and the food starts getting cold. Exasperated, you re-heat the mashed potatoes multiple times, then while you’re in the kitchen, you hear everyone laughing, chatting and relishing each other’s company. At this point, you realize it’s more important to enjoy the people you care about, even if the mashed potatoes are cold.

In order to gain this healthy perspective, you need to make stress relief time for yourself, whether that includes taking a warm bath, walking in nature, meditating on peace, listening to soothing music, or experiencing a LIFE biofeedback session with Lotus Stress Relief here in Sarasota. For more than 10 years, this practice has been assisting people as they navigate life’s pressures with biofeedback and stress relief coaching.
