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.
Take a warm shower or bath before bed.
Power down electronics one hour before sleep.
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.
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?
