First of Top 10 Holiday De-stress Tips

 The holiday season is upon us, we wanted you to know Food Cures U will be offering tips, recipes and other information to help you navigate through it with ease and joy.

To start off we’re including 2 of our favorite tips from our “Top 10 Holiday De-Stress Tips” in between “Simple, Healthy and Tasty” recipes that we’ll be sharing weekly to get you through the holiday season. Here are two tips to start out with:

1. Fasten your seat belt and get ready for the ride. You know the drill, there might be the tendency for things to get a little busy, people being edgy due to their own stress and/or it looks like there are just too many things to handle. Take a few minutes to plan out your meals for the next few weeks, prepare and freeze if possible or just have everything on hand. Simplify with one pot meals like soup or chili. Keep repeating the mantra “This  too shall pass.”.

2. Deliberately build in self-care to avoid blowing up at the very ones you love.  If you don’t practice these as a part of your daily or weekly life, now is an excellent time to start.  Take a soothing Epsom salts bath, stroll in nature, rest long enough to drink a cup of ginger or chia tea, go to bed and get a good night’s sleep. Depleting ourselves is not being loving. Self-care is loving ourselves so that we can be there for our family, friends, co-workers and that overworked store clerk.
