Keep Calm During The Holidays

5 Easy Tips to Help You Keep Calm During the Holidays

 It is indeed the most wonderful time of the year! With Christmas decorations in October, overeating at Thanksgiving, and long lines at the checkout, it's hard not to get excited. But for some, the Holidays can be a stressful time. Here are a few tips to help you stay sane during this or any time of the year.


  1. Prioritize self-care: Take time for yourself and do things you enjoy. Whether it's reading a book, taking a bubble bath, or going for a walk, make sure to carve out some "me time" to recharge.
  1. Set realistic expectations: Don't put too much pressure on yourself to have the "perfect" holiday. Remember, it's about spending time with loved ones and creating memories.
  1. Practice gratitude: Reflect on what you're thankful for. This can help shift your focus from stress and anxiety to appreciation and positivity.
  1. Simplify: Don't overcommit yourself or take on too much. Learn to say no and delegate tasks when possible.
  1. Stay organized: By keeping a schedule or to-do list, you can stay on top of your commitments and avoid last-minute stress.


Remember, the Holidays are meant to be enjoyed. By taking care of yourself, setting realistic expectations, practicing gratitude, simplifying, and staying organized, you can have a stress-free and enjoyable experience.

Healing Gemstones

Wearing or carrying certain types of gemstones can have a calming effect and promote well-being in various ways. For example, amethyst is known to calm the mind and aid in meditation. Rose quartz is believed to promote self-love and protect relationships. Pearl can help enhance personal integrity and focus one's attention, allowing them to open up and discover their true self. Tiger eye is said to minimize stress and bring good luck. If you're interested in learning more about the healing aspects of gemstones, many resources are available online.

 Just reach out. 

Family and Friends


Connecting with loved ones is crucial during the holiday season, as many people experience anxiety and stress. Reach out to a friend and enjoy a cup of coffee together, or give your aunt or cousin a call for a nice chat. Spending time with others can be a great stress reliever. 

Remember that your health and well-being should be a priority all year round, not just during the holidays. Consider incorporating meditation, aromatherapy, or healing gemstones into your self-care routine. And don't forget the power of friendship – a little help from your loved ones can go a long way. 

Wishing you peace and joy not just during the holidays but every day.
