Here are some tips for handling the stress of the holiday season from Duke Integrative Medicine:
emoticon Walk in the morning...
emoticon Take time for tea
emoticon Breathe in for 4 counts, hold your breath for 4 counts, release your breath for 6 counts to reduce stress and calm your central nervous system.
emoticon Time out. Take a break from demanding tasks and difficult people and do something that nurtures you.
