If you are wondering how to handle holiday stress, we are here to help! There are so many things that cause holiday stress, but luckily there are many ways to cope with holiday stress too!
What Causes Holiday Stress?
There are a plethora of things that contribute to holiday stress. The biggest ones are family and money. Being stretched too thin over the busy holiday season can also really amp up your stress level.
The holidays can be intense. Many people deal with family members who have been itching all year to ask those dreaded questions: Are you seeing anyone? Did you gain weight? How’s your job? And let’s not forget the classics: When are you having a baby? When are you having another baby? Aren’t you done having babies? Whether it’s about your relationship, job, politics, religion or an unborn child, this season of family reunions is destined to have passionate, possibly heated conversations.
The holidays are expensive! We all know that the presents and decorating and prepping add up, and fast! If you are already on a fixed budget, the holidays can really put you over the edge whether it is the overspending worries or the shopping on tiny budget guilt.
The holidays are so busy! Between endless shopping and endless decorating and prepping for parties, gatherings, dinners, lunches, etc., the stress can definitely get to you! Picking out the perfect gift for everyone on your list and, heck, even figuring who exactly IS on your list can be panic inducing!
How To Handle Holiday Stress
Look, you can only do so much! So consider these ways to reduce holiday stress!
- Don’t accept every single invite, and do not feel obligated to invite every single family member over!
- Set a budget and stick to it!
- Talk to your extended family about just getting gifts for those under 18, try out a white elephant gift exchange or setting gift cost limits.
- Take deep breaths, don’t drink to excess and try to be the better, more understanding, person when it comes to challenging conversations. If you need to take a break, do it! Go for a brisk walk or fake a headache!
- Take care of you! Stress can lead to several problems, including suppressing your immune system, worsening digestive and reproductive issues, more anxiety and depression, increasing the risk of heart attack and stroke and even speeding up the aging process. So go meditate, do yoga, go to the gym, pet your cat, pet your dog or go take a walk. Try some Hemp Bombs® CBD products like CBD Gummies or CBD Oil for relaxation and balance and read our blogs on Yoga CBD and the Best CBD for Holiday Stress!
How To Avoid Holiday Stress
You can’t really avoid holiday stress unless you just avoid the holidays altogether; which isn’t possible or practical for most people. The best way to reduce holiday stress is by taking care of number one. That is you! Keep up with your normal routines as much as possible. So keep reading, exercising, knitting, meditating, hanging with friends, etc. Your normal self-care routine should continue throughout the holiday season. You need self-care the most when it is the hardest to fit it into your schedule!
How To Take CBD Oil for Holiday Stress
CBD (cannabidiol) is a natural element, found in large quantities in Hemp plants, that may help relieve holiday-related stress. Unlike THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), a compound found largely in Marijuana plants, CBD is not psychoactive and will not cause you to feel “high”. Instead, CBD may calm nerves and reduce stress, leaving you feeling comfortable and relaxed.
If you already take CBD Oil, don’t forget your old friend during the holiday season! If you are new to CBD Oil and want to try it to help cope with holiday stress, start with a low concentration. The peppermint flavor is sure to keep your holiday spirit up!
Follow the directions on the label. Place ½ to one dropperful sublingually (under your tongue). Hold it in your mouth for about one minute before swallowing.
