Holiday Stress

posted by Pivotal Health Solutions on Friday, November 21, 2014

So your back aches, your head hurts and you're tired and stressed. Welcome to the holidays! Chiropractors Matthew and Elizabeth Christopher offer some good advice that you can share with your patients on the benefits of massage, chiropractic and other care that can bring the happy back into the season.

The holiday season is a joyous time of year full of fun, food, family and shopping! But, it can also be a stressful time of year for a lot of people with too much fun, too much food, too many family members and too much shopping. It’s all about finding balance.

We want to make sure that you enjoy every ounce of your time during this holiday season. So we are here for you during this joyous and stressful time of year. Below are a few of our tips to help with some of the stress you may experience:

  • Find time for yourself. A little rest and relaxation goes a long way when it comes to muscle tension and stress. 
  • Treat yourself to a relaxing massage! One of the best ways to relieve muscle tension is massage therapy. This may be the treat you are looking for to survive this holiday season. 
  • Remember to stay hydrated. With the sweet treats of the holiday season its important to make sure that you are drinking plenty of water to help your body stay hydrated and toxin free. 
  • Shop within a budget. Eliminate the stress of finances by sticking to a budget for your Christmas gifts.
    • If you have a person that is hard to please, maybe the gift of relaxation is all they need. Treat them to a massage by purchasing a gift certificate.
  • Always remember to stretch before and after any activity. As stress increases, flexibility of muscles decreases. Keeping them loose will help alleviate unnecessary muscle tension and pain.
  • Visit your chiropractor. If you find that you experience any back pain, neck pain, or headaches during this holiday season, chiropractic may be the answer for you. With the added stress of the holiday, why have more discomfort from a problem that could be helped with chiropractic care?
