Stress is not always bad. It puts your body in high alert so that you have energy ready for necessary actions. However, if it persists, a condition called “chronic stress” develops. The added stimuli in your body caused by this condition can negatively impact your health.
So don’t get stressed out this holiday. It is supposed to be a great time, whether you enjoy spending holiday with friends and family, or enjoy some solitude to reflect on and celebrate the year passed. Studies have shown that meditation and mindfulness practices can help people cope with stress. Here are some great resources to get you started on your practice.
Whatever you choose to do this holiday, Just Be.
