Holidays and Stress

Holidays, especially very hectic holidays like Christmas, come with enormous stress. Even happy stress upsets your body. It can cause rashes and body aches and pains and if you already have chronic pain or other diseases, it can aggravate these conditions.

Christmas is filled with expectations that are usually unrealistic and mad shopping which is stressful.

Social media adds stress. Limit your time on the internet. Pick and choose what you watch. Garbage in – Garbage out.

The TV and internet can cause enormous stress, especially in today’s political climate. We are bombarded with negativity and we forget how much goodness there is in the world. Turn the TV and the computer off and spend time doing things that enrich your life.

TV and internet, social media – can all be addictive. Recognize that giving in to this often negative occupation causes significant damage to your body. Initially you won’t know what to do and you may even be bored, but if you stick with it, you will find in the weeks and months to come that your life is better.
