While it’s called the “season of joy,” this time of year can be busy and taxing. Research shows that massage therapy can help relieve stress and improve your overall health this holiday season and all year-round.
3 Ways to Cope With Holiday Stress
1. Stick with your daily health routine
Deviating too much from your normal routine can add to your stress. Go easy on the holiday sweets and follow a balanced diet. Exercise regularly to help maintain your energy level during a busier schedule. Make sure you are getting enough sleep.
2. Don’t overextend yourself during the holiday
Allow yourself to say ‘no’ during the holidays. Doing more than you have the time or energy for is another way to add to your holiday stress level.
3. Take a me moment to get a massage – a great stress relief
According to research, massage therapy can be effective for stress relief. Research shows that massage therapy can relieve stress on physical and psychological levels including decreased blood pressure and heart rate as well as significant changes in emotional states.
