This holiday season is going to be different and most of us are going to miss our family and friends. Holidays can be stressful for some people as it is, so here are some rituals you can try to make this time of year more enjoyable and stress-free.

Sleep more

A holiday vacation is a perfect time to relax and catch up on your sleep. The best way to improve mood and boost your energy levels is to rest and get enough quality sleep every night.

Stay active

Staying active and exercising on a regular basis is the best way to take care of mental health this holiday season, considering that we’re going to spend more time at home this winter. Even if you don’t like to work out, try to stay active by dancing to your favorite music, jumping rope, or simply by walking more.

Make time for yourself

We all love to use holidays to spend more time with our loved ones, but don’t forget to make time for yourself and your hobbies. Reading a book, taking a bath, or writing a diary can all help keep your emotions in check during holidays.
