Ugh, holiday stress! Sleigh bells ring, children sing. Visions of sugarplums dance in your head. The fact is, for many of us “Feliz Navidad” becomes “Peliz, not again”. As reported by Fox News, instead of being filled with joy, for many people the holiday season is actually filled with physical and emotional discomfort with a whopping 88% who feel stressed out. And that stress is directly linked to the synchronicity of your hormones. If you’re feeling stressed, your hormones will land on the naughty list quicker than you can say “You got me socks again????”
It’s enough to age you.
YOUR TINSEL’S IN A TANGLE, YOUR HANUKAH LIGHTS ARE IN BURNOUT
Stress can make the holidays the most maddening time of the year. You feel like you’ll never find the perfect gifts. You feel like you’ll never make the perfect potato pancakes. Your dog feels that peeing on the tree is a great idea. Your budget is overstretched. Your gut seems to be growing from all those goodies you giddily gorge on. Your calendar crashes, your entire body begins to crumble under the stress; heartburn, hangover, memory loss, loss of libido (not anytime this season, hon), loss of sleep, weight gain…the weight of the holidays would quash anyone’s jolly. And it can all affect the aging process.
Aging. Bah Hum-bug.
AGING IS NO GIFT, NO MATTER HOW YOU WRAP IT
While the holidays might be considered a never-ending happy hour, your stress hormones are anything but happy. Even anything Apple won’t ease the prolonged physical, emotional and mental stress that can unbalance these hormones, putting a stress on your entire body. It can make you feel like 30 going on 80. Because of unbalanced hormones, everything about the holiday can age you.
Not even an Amazon elf can help.
JOY TO YOUR HORMONES
Don’t let yourself become a holiday stress statistic. There are things you can do to toss stress out of your stocking;
- Resist the urge to go all Marth Stewart on your entertaining.
- Don’t shop ‘til you drop.
- Be assured that gift cards fit everyone.
- Learn to say no. Make that “nooooooooo…..”
