How To De-Stress This Christmas


Cooking a Christmas feast for the hundreds, screaming kids enjoying their new toys and prissy in-laws judging your life choices – sound familiar? The festive season can bring a lot of stresses as well as joy. To help you unwind from the negative energies that can come with Christmas, here are our top 5 tips.


Bulk Buy On The Mistletoe

Having a cheeky smooch under the mistletoe is a time-old Christmas tradition but if you are feeling a tiny bit rattled kissing is actually a stress-buster. When we sneak in a kiss with a loved one this releases endorphins, the feel good hormones which will put you in a happier mood.


Aromatherapy and Essential Oils

Frankincense, bergamot and cinnamon are not only festive scents but are also stress-reducing smells.  Just apply a few drops in a diffuser or oil burner to bring an air of stress relief to your home.  Our Hydrating Facial Serum is also infused with essential oils including lavender, bergamot and jojoba.


Chew Gum To Help With Comfort Eating

Some people are prone to comfort eating and snacking when they feel stressed. So instead of heading straight to the gingerbread cookies when your Nan insults your new hair colour try chewing on some gum instead. Not only will this prevent you from snacking but it’s also an effective stress reliever when you stew on your chewing gum for over 10 minutes.


Watch A Classic Christmas Comedy

Laughter is the best medicine, so why not relax with an old-time Christmas classic film to help boost from mood. Christmas is the chance to relive your childhood so watch films that you loved growing up that still bring a smile to your face and escape the pressures of your modern world.


Switch Off!

The pressures of the social media world have everyone conscious about their own lives. It’s a horrible mental whirlpool where you constantly compare your own lives to others. To help avoid any Christmas envy over the holidays, switch yourself off from Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or any other platform that might put a dampener on your fantastic day and stop you from appreciating the moment.
