Your Stress-Free Holiday Survival Guide!

REAL TALK: The holidays are a time for joy, celebration, and... absolute stress!


But fear not! With a little preparation, we can turn the holiday stress-o-meter down a notch and prioritize our well-being. In the spirit of fostering a mindful holiday season, we’ve wrapped up 4 top-notch strategies to keep the joy high and the stress low this festive season:


Sleep Soundly: Let’s face it, nothing goes well when we are sleep-deprived — and sleep is often the first thing to go during a busy holiday season. We recommend cultivating a sense of calm 30 minutes before bedtime by turning off your devices, and pouring a soothing cup of Chamomile tea, Chamomile has been used for centuries to promote relaxation and sleep. It contains apigenin, an antioxidant that binds to GABA receptors in the brain, promoting feelings of calmness and sleepiness..,


Stay Hydrated: ‘Tis the season for the hangover. If you’ve been hitting up the open bar at all those holiday parties (we won’t judge), chances are you are no stranger to waking up with a nasty hangover. If you forget to drink a glass of water for every cocktail to counter the alcohol’s dehydrating effects, one of our favorite hangover cures is Coconut Water. Coconut water is a natural source of electrolytes, which are essential minerals that alcohol consumption can deplete. Electrolytes help regulate fluid balance and muscle function, aiding in hangover recovery.


Ditch the Diet Talk: The holidays come around once a year, so enjoy them! After all, a healthy lifestyle is all about balance and moderation. Did you overindulge at the cookie swap? Drink too much eggnog? We recommend Activated charcoal to soothe upset stomachs, aid digestion, and “undo the overdo.” Activated charcoal is a natural absorbent that can help to bind to toxins in the gut and remove them from the body. It can also help to reduce gas, bloating, and diarrhea. Activated charcoal is available in powder form and can be taken with water or juice.


It’s ok to say No: It’s easy to over-commit yourself during the holidays–and let’s be honest, no matter how hard you try, you can’t do it all. Plus, it’s exhausting! So we are here to remind you that it’s okay to say no to things you don’t want to do (like things that stress you out, don’t make you happy, or take up too much of your time.). Besides, when you say no to one thing, you are making room to say YES to something else–like a little YOU time.


Cheers to a stress-free and joyful holiday season!
