- Get exercise: This is extremely important. Go to the gym, take regular walks or run. Make sure you stay active to help reduce the stress level.
- Watch your diet: People tend to eat more quantities of rich foods during the holidays. It's okay to indulge occasionally, but do it responsibly and in moderation.
- Get a checkup: If you haven't had one recently, the holidays might be a good time to visit the doctor and have a routine physical.
- Be organized: Have a plan, make a schedule and do it one step at a time. Do not wait until the last minute to do everything.
- Be cost effective: Given the current economic crisis, no one can blame you for spending less this year. Keep it simple.
- Ask for help: You can't be expected to do everything yourself. Ask for help when it comes to shopping and decorating, as well as other tasks.
- Get enough sleep: You shouldn't underestimate the power of a good night's sleep, as well as daily down time. Take a nap, take time for yourself, reenergize and relax. Your body will thank you for it.
