The holiday season is probably the busiest time of the year. With so many gatherings to attend, gifts to buy, and people to visit, you may not be able to find yourself some well-deserved alone time. This may lead to stress which is the last thing you want to be dealing with during the festivities. Keep a healthy lifestyle by following these tips:

Take a dip in your hot tub
Along with making you feel temporarily relaxed, studies show that the combination of the hot water, the massage of the jets, and the feeling of weightlessness can significantly reduce both mental and physical stress and decrease anxiety. Source: SwimUniversity

Exercise (even for a minute)
Exercise doesn’t necessarily mean power lifting at the gym or training for a marathon. A short walk around the office or simply standing up to stretch during a break at work can offer immediate relief in a stressful situation. Getting your blood moving releases endorphins and can improve your mood almost instantaneously. Source: Healthline

Don’t be a “yes” man
You cannot do everything you are asked, so why keep pretending that you can? Indeed, the more you promise and don’t deliver, the fewer people will perceive you as being reliable. Instead, be assertive and learn to say “no” politely, but firmly. Keep track of your schedule to clearly acknowledge when you do not have the time or resources to take on extra tasks.

Focus on your senses
For a few minutes a day, practice being mindful—focusing only on what’s going on in the present —whether it’s during your workout or taking a break from your work. Try taking a short walk and instead of thinking about what’s worrying you, pay attention to your senses—what you see, feel, hear, smell. This can make a huge difference in your emotional and physical well-being when done daily. Source: Shape
