When I was asked to contribute to an article for The Lady magazine on beating holiday stress I knew exactly what they meant! The idea of a family holiday is always so fantastic, the plans so fun to make but the reality can be ever so different. The girls and I recently went on a little road trip from Austria to Croatia and the Italy. By the time I had packed the car my stress levels were elevated – to say the least! 😉
The article on beating holiday stress pulls together different experts and their tips:
- practice a mindful walk where you focus on what is actually happening inside and outside of you
- stretch your body, your limbs, move and refresh.
- Have a mantra at hand and repeat it several times. Such as ‘this too shall pass’ is a popular one that always reminds me that the stress I am experiencing is most likely temporary…so why not get over it asap!
The full article is here for you to read! I hope you will find a top or two useful for that unavoidable stressful holiday moment!
