Whether you’ve got lots of social events on your calendar (and lots of food at these events!)…

…or maybe you don’t have a lot of social events to attend…

Either way, it’s easy for anxiety to creep in around the holidays, so I wanted to provide you with 14 ways to overcome that anxiety!

Reduce caffeine to one cup max.

No alcohol.

Take a warm shower or bath before bed. 

Power down electronics one hour before sleep.

Stay hydrated.

Eat something every 2 hours and including protein when possible to help balance blood sugar levels and hormones.

Take a 30-60 second cold shower to stimulate the vagus nerve.

Journal.

Spend time in nature.

Cut out intense workouts in favor of gentle walks or light stretching.

Try a guided meditation (depending on where your anxiety). Live Awake podcast has some nice ones.

Enjoy a weighted blanket (Bearaby has nice ones)

Limit news or media that drives fear, anxiety or comparison. 

Turn off social media for a couple days.

Which of these do you need the most at this moment?
