Christmas can be a wonderful time of year but it can also be a particularly stressful one, with all sorts of unexpected pressures. Here are three things I will be practising to help myself (and everyone around me!) stay happy and contented this festive season.
1. Taking a stretch
The more stressed you are, the more your body will tense naturally. Stop right now and notice your jaw – is it a little clenched? Your shoulders – do they feel tense? If so, take a few minutes to move around. Do some shoulder rolls, massage your temples, reach your arms overhead and take a big stretch. You’ll feel more energised and relaxed in no time.
