I don't get that stressed for the holidays. Gifts are simple and symbolic, and we also have cut out some non-meaningful activities and expenses.

I tend to not have much additional stress during the holidays because I don't celebrate anything, and I don't buy anything. I often don't attend parties or even see family. For me, the holidays is just another day.

But when it comes to dealing with stress, I tend to deal with it ACTIVELY. Working out has been my go-to for stress busting for a long time. But now, I realize that I need more effective forms of de-stressing.

One paycheck left before Christmas? Dread being trapped in the same kitchen as your mother-in-law? You know that your second cousin once removed from your father's side is going to hit you up for money after the big holiday dinner? Or it can be that your children's wish list is higher than Mount Everest. The holidays can impose stress in one concentrated amount of time than you would normally have all year. For me, a phone call to a friend or a long walk helps when I feel that my blood pressure is about to burst through my forehead. How do you deal with holiday stress?
