The holidays are always a time that people start to feel a great amount of stress during. It is generally a hectic time between work, family, friends, and trying to either find the perfect present or make a delicious meal. This means that you may find yourself cutting corners in your personal life. For some people, this means that housework and cleaning start to go out the window. For others, it means that your hobbies are pushed to the side. For many of us, however, it means that things like meal planning and cooking don’t get done and we opt for something like fast food instead. While it may be easier to do this, it certainly doesn’t help you out in the long run.

                  One of the things that we see the most around this time of the year is people who gain weight that is related to stress. Some people stress eat and that is simply a fact of life. Others may not eat any more or less than they normally do, yet still find that they are gaining weight. This can be extremely upsetting and emotions can cause us to either throw more things off balance internally or seek solace in something else, such as food. It becomes a vicious cycle and it truly is dangerous when it comes to your health.

                  One thing that we always recommend for people who feel great amounts of stress during the holiday season is to try and take a step back. Take a few deep breaths and realize that your health is more important than a really cool gift or someone else’s opinion of your cooking. You need to take care of yourself first and then you can help those around you better. Try a few small exercises and make sure to meal plan if you normally do. You may find that those few extra pounds that always seem to find you around this time of the year aren’t so bad.
