The first key to managing holiday stress is realizing there is no way to avoid it. As awful as that sounds, there are so many things going on during the so-called holiday season – shopping, cooking, family gatherings – that it’s almost impossible to have a completely stress-free couple of months. But here’s the good news – preparation of the mind and body can PREVENT the stress of the holidays.

This leads us to the second key to beating stress this holiday season: acceptance. Knowing your history of stress and past emotional triggers can help you to either avoid those same triggers this time around, or to better PREPARE yourself for them so YOU can manage THEM, instead of the other way around. If neither is possible, be open and accept yourself, and feel free to talk to a friend or professional so you can better understand your mental health before it can begin to suffer. (2)

To beat the overwhelming amount of stressors this holiday season, consider your workload. Understanding deadlines and proper planning can help you to see that most stressors around the holidays are not only PREVENTABLE, but also a result of self-imposed deadlines and ridiculous expectations. Go easy on yourself, maintain a ROUTINE, and you’ll have a HAPPIER and HEALTHIER holidays for you and your loved ones this year. (3)

 

QUICK TIP: To avoid stress, continue routines, even when traveling. This includes your oral care AND facial care routine.

If a general perspective change isn’t working, it’s important to know when your holiday stress is becoming too much to handle. To figure out if holiday stress is negatively affecting your health, be aware of stomach aches, tension headaches, trouble sleeping, moodiness, and clammy hands. Eventually, stress exhaustion may be reached – a point where your body simply can’t handle it anymore.

Once the stress of the holidays becomes too much, cancer, migraines, and immune disorders can result, which can potentially afflict you once the holidays are over. A key to fighting this is by making the holidays fun! After all, candy canes, gingerbread, gifts, movies, exercise, and family should not be scary! Have a positive attitude, and remember what the holidays are truly about. (5)

With a simple shift in your attitude and perspective, you can find joy during previously stressful activities. Keeping expectations realistic and moving between tasks and activities in a calm, attentive, and manageable way will help you to keep your mind CLEAR, your body HEALTHY, and your skin RADIANT.

HOLIDAY STRESS AND YOUR SKIN

 

Now let’s talk about how this holiday stress affects your skin. Eczema, acne, psoriasis, rosacea, and irritation are all consequences of holiday stress. Another common result of holiday stress is oily skin as a result of increased cortisol production and increased glucose in your body.

Adding to the danger of holiday stress is the danger of cold, wintry weather. Wrinkles, rashes, and dehydrated skin can all be caused by the symptoms of winter, when indoor heating and dry heat can cause problems for your skin. Hot water from long, relaxing showers also needs to be watched, as it can cause your skin problems that can take some time to be remedied. (7)

 

The stress of the holidays can lead to thinning hair! Protect, strengthen, and moisturize your hair today with GARNER'S GARDEN 100% ALL-NATURAL WOMEN'S HAIR CARE PACKAGE!

 

Your skin can also suffer from some of the roadblocks of the holidays, such as a lack of sleep, lack of physical exercise, and indulgences. Not maintaining a proper diet can lead to dehydration, which extends to your skin and its ability to bounce back from rest. To fight this, keep a consistent ALL-NATURAL SKIN CARE ROUTINE, which will keep you from forgetting your all-important skin. (8)

 

QUICK TIP: Excessive makeup worn during the holidays can lead to dirty skin that can make breakouts worse. Give your skin the detox it needs all holidays long by using GARNER’S GARDEN 100% ALL-NATURAL FACIAL CARE SYSTEM! (9)

 

To specifically fight the effects of holiday stress, VITAMIN C will be your new best friend. Vitamin C will help increase the radiance of your skin, and is best used as early in your ALL-NATURAL ROUTINE as possible. This is because the earlier you work on your skin, the longer your skin will look healthy and radiant.

Now here's another key to protecting your skin from stress during the holidays: to achieve healthy skin this season, boost your skin's MOISTURE. During the cold, maintaining moisture levels can help fend off dark circles, while also fending off some of the more common triggers of holiday skin-related problems, like drinking alcohol. (10)

It’s also important to not forget your hair! Stress during the holidays can also lead to hair loss and patchiness, and conditions like trichtotillomania and telogen effluvium – which include pulling your hair and when your hair follicles fall out over time. (11)
