Between making your to-do lists, keeping your home clean for visitors, and getting the shopping done for your holiday meal and everyone on your gift list, all while squeezing in your favorite traditions, you can feel it building—holiday stress.
We’ve got some advice to help keep your stress under control and your holidays merry and bright.
Prioritize your to-do lists
During the holidays we want to buy all the things, cook all the things, do all the things and be all the places.
Alas, we only have so much time, energy and money. So, when you’re making your to-do lists, prioritize them as “must do” and “nice to do.”
You must provide sustenance for your guests at your holiday party. It would be nice if you found the time to make your grandma’s classic cookie recipe, beautifully decorated for the season. But your guests will be just as happy with a simpler version or a store-bought substitute.
Getting through your must-dos will be an accomplishment to be proud of. If you’re able to swing a few nice-to-dos at the end, go for it. But don’t let it weigh you down if they don’t get crossed off.
Take a time out
A short break from the hustle and bustle can do wonders to reset your mind and your perspective, so take a few minutes each day to step back from your tasks and do something you really enjoy.
Indulge in your favorite sweet treat, read a magazine with a cup of tea or coffee, sneak away for a quick meditation or take a short walk. You’ll feel refreshed and rejuvenated for the challenges that lie ahead.
Don’t forget to exercise
Get up from your desk and walk around the office or the building. Take a break from hours of wrapping or cooking and get moving.
It’s not just one more thing on your to-do list, it’s putting you in a better position to accomplish all the others.
Be kind to your body
Make time to rest and get proper nutrition. Up late with last minute details? Make sure you have time for a short nap the next day and do your best to get to bed early enough for a full 8 hours of sleep the next night.
And even if you only have time for grab and go meals and snacks, make sure they’re not empty calories. Keep fruit and sliced vegetables handy, as well as nutritious bars, like Nutrilite™ Wellness Bars or XS™ Energy Bars. And don’t forget your vitamins!
These are challenging goals during busy hectic times. But when you’re well rested and your body has healthy fuel, you can take care of all your responsibilities more efficiently and effectively.
Give yourself a boost
Just like you stock up on batteries to make sure toys and devices are fully charged, consider a supplement, consider a supplement to help you get the energy and focus you need to tackle your day.
The Nutrilite™ Ultra Focus + Energy Pack is designed to help your body fight fatigue, support memory and maximize your mental focus during exercise†, while providing nutritional support.
Each packet contains Nutrilite™ Vitamin B Dual-Action for energy support, Nutrilite™ Memory Builder™ to help you stay sharp and XS™ Energy + Focus to maximize your endurance and mental focus during exercise†.
These tips will help you take care of yourself and power through during the holidays so you can make the most of the season.
