Medical Minute: Helping with holiday stress

Traveling plus shopping plus holiday get-togethers, add it all together and it can equal one word, stress!

Most of the stressors that we see during the holidays are people getting really excited and over committing themselves. That could be with money or your time juggling the job and fighting mall traffic.

There are things you can do to make your holidays bright and merry says Julie Schwartz, a certified wellness coach. First, try to stick to what you usually do.That includes keeping a normal sleep schedule, and sticking to your gym routine. Remember to prioritize, no one can do everything, stick to the events and activities that you can really enjoy and get the most out of.

Above all else take time to enjoy your time with family and friends this holiday season and relax when you can.
