    7 Ways To Reduce Holiday Season Stress

    It’s supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year, but as the holiday season is upon us again, for many it’s the most stressful time of the year. From visits with family and out-of-town guests, buying gifts for everyone on your list, cooking, decorating and more, the holidays sometimes bring more stress than they do joy.


    Colin Christopher, a clinical hypnotherapist certified by the American Council of Hypnotist Examiners, and author of Success Through Manipulation, offers these tips to reduce stress and make it through the next few months:

  1. - Don’t procrastinate: You can reduce stress with a little bit of planning and getting an early start. If you wait until the last minute and find yourself pressed for time, you’re going to experience more stress.

  2. - Learn to say ‘no:’ If you have a hard time telling people ‘no,’ you’re going to find yourself overcommitted, tired, unable to do the things you really want to do and stressed out. It’s ok to say ‘no’ if you don’t want to do something or don’t have the time to do it.

  3. - Get plenty of sleep: The holidays are an exciting time, but people tend to neglect getting enough rest due to travel, staying up late with family, overeating and feeling overwhelmed. Make sleep a priority during the holidays and you’ll enjoy the season more.

  4. - Take a moment for yourself: During the holidays, we have so many commitments to our family, friends, visitors, office parties and more, and people tend to forget about themselves. Even as little as 20 to 30 minutes each day to do something you enjoy or to go for a walk by yourself will refresh you, relieve stress and help you enjoy the holidays.

  5. - Breathe: If you’re feeling overly anxious or stressed, take a few minutes to slow your breathing down. Breathe in through your diaphragm (stomach area), hold for a few seconds, and slowly release through your mouth.

  6. - Stand back and appreciate the moment: We tend to get so caught up in the moment that it’s over before we know it. Take time to step back and enjoy the time with your family, playing in the snow with your kids, and just be thankful for all you have. You’ll naturally feel less stressed and more satisfied when you are thankful for everything around you.

  7. - Lower your expectations: Some people place very high expectations on the holidays. They picture everything playing out in a specific way, and find themselves disappointed and stressed out when things don’t go according to plan. Lower your expectations and just let life happen. You’ll feel less stressed and have more fun.

    Book Helps Readers Self-Talk Themselves through Their Holiday Blues

    "Self-Talk for a Calmer You" by The Human Behavior Coach™ Beverly D. Flaxington, reveals how people can use positive self-talk to control anxiety and live a happier, more relaxed life


    MEDFIELD, Mass. - Oct. 29, 2014 - While the holidays are a time of happiness and celebration for millions, many people find them more mournful than joyful. Loss of a spouse, child or family member, divorce, or dealing with difficult relatives can make the holidays feel like the worst of times.

    "During the holiday period, the problems we have, or losses we feel can be especially overwhelming," said The Human Behavior Coach ™ Beverly D. Flaxington, author of "Self-Talk for a Calmer You." (Adams Media; $15.95; paperback; 223 pp; ISBN 13: 978-1-4405-6480-2)

    While feelings of upset are perfectly normal and expected, those feelings are often exacerbated by what Flaxington calls negative self-talk.

    "Negative self-talk is a running voice in the person's mind that tells the person they will never feel okay again, or their life no longer has any purpose, because of what's happened to them," Flaxington said. "The continual flow of negative self-talk takes a bad situation and intensifies it. People lose any chance they might have to find a small ray of happiness."

    The antidote to negative self-talk, Flaxington said, is positive self-talk. Positive self-talk consists of positive, analytical statements and affirmations which uplift, enhance, and encourage individuals, and help them to reach a goal, accomplish a task, or improve their life. These positive, self-authored stories announce what good things are going to happen in a person's life before they happen.

    "The anxiety or depression caused by the death of a loved one, divorce, or job-loss at the holidays can be gradually lifted by enough of the right kind of positive self-talk," Flaxington said.

    In her book, Flaxington lays out detailed step-by-step approaches with powerful positive exercises designed for those who have experienced great personal losses, and who wish to use positive self-talk to move past their grieving and seek out new relationships. With certain sectors of the economy experiencing high unemployment, and a record number of Americans on welfare, another holiday anxiety that can be somewhat soothed by positive self-talk, is the general worry about personal finance and job security, Flaxington said.

    "It's important to first write down the beliefs you have about how this situation could affect your life, such as, 'If I lose my job, I can't pay the mortgage or send my kids to college, and we'll starve,'" Flaxington said. "Then realize that these outcomes are all conjecture fueled by your negative self-talk. Instead, you want to quickly shift any catastrophic self-talk about being doomed to something more positive and powerful."

    The best strategy for maxed-out personal finances, and a shaky economy is to get busy identifying the resources and the attributes, skills, support systems, intellectual abilities, and strengths you possess that could help you deal with the situation, Flaxington said. The following positive self-talk - and other appropriate affirmations from the book - should be recited frequently: 'I am bigger than any situation I face. I was made to deal with my life and everything that comes to me.'

    "The positive self-talk response to stress is not just to look on the bright side, but to allow yourself some time to be calm and not drained by streams of negative self-talk when you need your full attention to handle difficult situations," Flaxington said.

    Besides chapters on easing anxieties connected to the loss of loved ones and job security, "Self-Talk for a Calmer You" contains information about:

  • easing stress in a marriage

  • removing anxiety caused by lack of resources and difficult personalities in the workplace

  • job hunting

  • anxiety connected to public speaking, major life changes, or managing stressful situations

  • anxiety caused by weight loss failures or work overload

  • the "secret" to sticking to a New Year's resolution

  • advice for defining and attaining "your bliss" in life


  • "The book helps you compile a personal toolkit that you can use in any situation to stop negative self-talk in its tracks and put you on a more successful path to the positive outcomes you desire," Flaxington said.

When Pepper's latest radio antics anger an important advertising executive, he gets shipped over to a sister station, KBRG in Idyllwild, Colorado, to serve out his suspension until the dust blows over. Sandy Love (Haylie Duff), following in her father’s footsteps, loves radio and came home to Idyllwild to host her own talk show. She is unapologetically romantic and nostalgic, especially at Christmas. Thrown together as co-hosts on her show “Dr. Love in the Morning,” she is immediately at odds with Pepper, who never met a sentiment he couldn’t twist into a punchline and has no use for Christmas. When Samantha and Pepper’s “war of words” catches the attention of the small town, their joint show becomes a hit and they start to see something in each other.

When their dad loses his job just before the holidays, the family ignores the severity of the situation and continues to live above their means.

One day, after hearing the roar of buzz saws used to clear the woods of sickly saplings, nine-year-old Molly ran to save her favorite – even after her father Gordon and his crew had made a gash in its trunk. She knew that someday this little tree would have a tale to tell. Now 29, Molly is pursuing her writing career in Manhattan. Unfortunately as Pendant Publishing CEO Walter Dunlap’s assistant, Molly has no life and little chance to write. She's devastated to learn from her architect brother Ryan that the bank is foreclosing on her parents’ heritage tree farm. This will be her family’s last Christmas there. However, a frustrated Molly can’t make it home thanks to obligations to her boss and his young daughters. Much to her shock, Molly discovers that the Christmas tree she ordered for the Dunlap home is that same one she saved years ago. Certain that it is the same tree from her youth – and a sign – Molly drags the pine back to her Vermont home and embarks upon a plan to save the family farm – with some surprising, inventive help from her brother and former boyfriend/banker Lucas. Stars: Lacey Chabert (“Party of Five”).

But as the big day approaches, Marci is so consumed with work that she hasn’t had time to plan her wedding. To make matters worse, she may have to team up with former assistant/fake fiancé Adam to win a project she’s been vying for – a little tidbit she hasn’t shared with Blair. But Blair, as it turns out, has a secret of his own. Thanks to years of doing pro bono work for financially-strapped clients, he quickly is running out of cash and might have to accept an offer to work for his longtime nemesis, Marci’s manipulative cousin Preston. Meanwhile, Marci’s mother Stephanie (Victoria Rowell) is making some rather bold moves of her own with her sexy salsa teacher, Antonio, who’s more than a little smitten with her — and about 20 years her junior. Will there be a wedding for Christmas? Better yet - whose wedding will it be? Stars: Malinda Williams (“Soul Food”), Victoria Rowell (“The Young and the Restless”) and Karon Riley (35 and Ticking).

AFRICAN AMERICANS & HOLIDAYS - CELEBRATIONS
   

  1. African American Holiday Association...
    People of color holiday list. Commemorative Days, National, International or Local Celebrations.

  2. American Holidays...
    Official information and services from the U.S. government. Americans celebrate a variety of holidays throughout the year.
