Tips To Beat Holiday Stress

Don't let the cheery music and sparkly lights fool you, the holidays can be a tough and stressful time for many, especially in these rough economic times. But there are some things you can do to help ease some of the stress.

The main thing, exercise. Pumping up boosts the brain's feel-good neurotransmitters, called endorphins. Doctors also say it can improve mood and give you that extra energy needed for late-night gift wrapping and cookie baking.

If you feel yourself getting really discouraged during these dark winter months, talk to a doctor about getting a therapeutic light box. Using it in the morning could help.

Experts also suggest buying pre-made baked goods rather than trying to make everything yourself.
