Don't sweat the small stuff and your holiday will be much more enjoyable.

Surround yourself with those you love and be happy in their presence.

2. Go Tech-Free

Constant cell phone buzzes and email alerts keep us in perpetual flight or fight mode due to bursts of adrenaline.
What better time to turn your gadgets off than during a holiday get together and enjoy spending time with your loved ones!

3. Turn up the tunes

Anxious? Listen to your favourite music to allow your relaxation of your blood vessels and increase blood flow.

Not only does music calm you down, but it’s good for your heart too!

4. Fit in exercise

It may be the last thing you feel like doing when you’re stressed out but going for a walk or hitting the gym can make you feel better by boosting your mood and release endorphins which will trigger a positive feeling in your body.

5. Think Positive

Negative thinking can tigger your body’s stress response. It’s important to remember it’s time to celebrate with your family and friends and an optimistic outlook will help you cope with challenges that come your way!
