How do you get through the holidays unscathed by stress?

By Vikki Nestico

By going with the flow… literally!

Holidays are meant for family, friends and celebration – not stress! Don’t sweat the small stuff. If things don’t go as planned, focus on your ability to elegantly flow through the situation instead of letting it cause irritation. This is the season to relax and be thankful for the people in your life. Put your job and stress on the backburner for a bit and enjoy those who mean the most to you.

Need a little help de-stressing? Georgetown University School of Nursing and Health Studies found that acupuncture helps block elevated hormones due to stress, allowing the body and mind to relax. Not only does acupuncture help with the immediate stress response of our body but also the conditions that are caused by chronic stress, including: insomnia, depression and anxiety.
