Christmas isn’t all mulled wine, presents, or time with family and friends. It can be stressful and overwhelming, and if you find yourself in this position this festive season, we have some tips on how to stress less this Christmas.
This time of the year might feel like you’re doing more socialising in a short time compared to the rest of the year. The hustle and bustle of Christmas and all its festivities can be overwhelming, but taking time to yourself daily can help you stress less.
Plan your days, so you’re not trying to pack too much in. Don’t be afraid to turn down invitations or say no to people. Recharging your batteries, be they physical or social, will help you to enjoy the Christmas season with lots of energy.
If you find it hard to go to sleep at night, add Hush & Hush Mind Your Mind to your nighttime routine. It quietens your mind, body and soul with time-tested botanicals that work to reduce stress and reduce mind clutter.
Stress can play havoc on your immune system, as can low-energy levels and unhealthy habits. At Christmas, this can all build up, making the body unable to defend itself. Things like taking time for yourself, meditation and self-care can help to reduce stress, but sometimes your body needs more than that.
Shield Up supports the immune system with Vitamin C and reduces stress with adaptogens like Rhodiola rosea root. Not only that, but it boosts energy levels with maca root and organic turmeric.
Look after your gut
Christmas is a time for overindulgence when it comes to food and alcohol. You might find yourself eating and drinking more than usual as the festivities are in full swing. But this can lead to you feeling sluggish, with little energy.
Rather than waiting until January to look after your gut, take Hush & Hush PlantYourDay every day. It’s a power-packed plant-based vegan protein powder that gives your body supergreens, superfoods, fibre, antioxidants and clean, clinical vitamins. It contains probiotics which help in healthy digestion, fueling the body with long-lasting energy.
Making the most of the little moments of joy can help you stress less this Christmas. Do what makes you happy, whether it’s taking a break from social media so you can spend more time with loved ones or watching your favourite Christmas movie.
