Surviving the Holidays

It’s hard to believe it, but it’s that time of year again, the holidays!

The month of December can be very stressful for many. Figuring out plans to get together with family and friends, meal planning and extra cooking, packed grocery stores, more traffic, money always on the mind.

Stress can seriously affect your health, body, mood, and behavior. Sleep problems, anxiety, lack of motivation, depression or sadness, fatigue, over/under eating, or substance abuse.  

If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s important to check in with your doctor. We offer a variety of solutions that can be specific to whatever it is you’re experiencing.

Here’s just a few tips to keep in mind to try to keep your stress levels down:

While the holidays may be stressful, it’s a wonderful time to reflect on the year. The highs and lows, the accomplishments and gatherings, and to really take a minute and appreciate everything you have and realize everything you offer to this world.

We at Optima wish you and your families the happiest of holidays!
