The hustle and bustle of the holidays are upon us. Between shopping for loved ones and preparing for guests, emotional and physical demands can be high and the stress that they cause can have negative effects on your well-being. In fact, the time between Thanksgiving and New Years is associated with an increase in depression and heart related death.  One contributing  factor is thought to be stress. Concentrate on filling your hearts with the things that mean the most to you. Take extra steps to prevent stress from creeping in and taking over that joy. Here are a few tips to take the stress out of your  holidays. Shop Early, Limit Alcohol, take 10 minutes every day to meditate, get our sleep on, limit time on the Internet, get moving and stick to a budget. As always, take time for yourself and value the things that matter the most. Your Health is your Wealth. For more information from this Penn Medicine re-blog, go to tovacares.blogspot.com.
