December is National Stress-Free Family Holidays Month

December is National Stress-Free Family Holidays Month. Yeah, right. A stress-free family holiday may sound like a fantasy. In fact, for many families, the additional stress of the holidays can feel overwhelming. We can help your family navigate this unusually stressful time.

Set An Intention to Have a Stress-Free Holiday Season

Setting intentions helps you manifest what you want to accomplish. By simply agreeing as a family to work towards a stress-free holiday season, you’ve already changed your family’s mindset and decreased your chances of becoming overwhelmed.

Use Your Strengths to Navigate the Stressful Holiday Season

Start by using your family’s strengths to help you navigate the busy holiday season. Leaning into your family’s strengths can help mitigate stress. Perseverance, Creativity, and Kindness can help you unlock a stress-free holiday. Find something for the whole family to do together. Bake some holiday treats. Find and complete a holiday-themed craft or puzzle. Sign our Kindness pledge and start spreading kindness in your family, your community, and the world.

Practice Mindfulness

Practicing mindfulness is a proven way to reduce stress. Mindfulness can be implemented in easy ways. Subscribe to our YouTube page and watch our short mindful minute videos. These brief exercises can help calm your mind and your body and help you release stress during the busy holiday season.

The holidays can be stressful. But by setting intentions, leveraging your family’s strengths, and practicing mindfulness, your family can survive the busy holiday season and maybe even have a little fun.
