How to prepare for stressful situations

As the holidays approach, we prepare for friends, family, and good cheer. We also prepare for long lines, crowded malls, and the possibility of family drama. The good outweighs the bad, but that doesn’t mean the cons can be taken carelessly. The key to a happy vacation is de-stressing, and here are some tips to help make that happen.

Get rid of stress in advance

Before you start tackling this big to-do list, start taking care of yourself. Do what you can to de-stress before entering a number of stressful conditions. Hit the gym or yoga mat, take time to meditate, focus on yourself, and solve any lingering problems at work or at home. You know you’ll be busy, so relax early – head to the spa for facials and manicures to look great, get a therapeutic massage to feel relaxed.

To be alert

Try to be in the moment when the tension hits. Be aware of the wishes and desires of others and try to keep perspective. Yes, someone can be rude in a store, but they can be under the same amount of stress as you without the proper tools to deal with it. If you think you know the perfect gift for someone and you can’t find it, understand that there are more important things. Refocus and try to find something else that you like.


Take a quiet break

Don’t try to handle stressful confrontations as if you were a soldier on the battlefield. You don’t have to spend 100 percent of the time. Getaway from the hustle and bustle of shopping or the growing stresses at the family gathering and take some quiet time for yourself. Have a coffee or just sit quietly and try to clear your thoughts. Come back to it when you’re ready.

Vacation can be as stressful as it is fun, so remember to keep your head up so you can spend it with the least amount of anxiety. Once this is done, you can book another spa appointment.
