Self Care During Holiday Season
There’s no escaping — it’s the season for stress! Whether you love them or dread them, the holidays tax our bodies and our minds. Spending hours on your feet shopping and cooking, the constant temptation to overeat and drink, navigating the holiday social scene — they all take their toll.
The holidays require a great deal of physical and mental energy to handle these seasonal demands of cooking for and entertaining a house full of extended family. Traveling over the holidays — especially with children — can try the patience of even the jolliest souls.
For some, the holiday season can also trigger serious feelings of sadness. Many, particularly those afflicted with seasonal affective disorder, are sensitive to the shorter, darker days. And, if you’ve experienced a recent loss of a loved one or can’t spend time with your family, you might find it especially difficult to get in the holiday spirit even at spirited events.
So how can you stress less and enjoy more this holiday season? Believe it or not, establish a yoga practice routine during the holiday season will help you to stretch away your stress and breathe your way to calm and control.
If you are new, take advantage of our New Student Intro: $75 for one month of unlimited yoga. Now, go forth and practice self-care in between drinking hot cocoa and snuggling in front of the fire.
