Are you already beginning to stress about the holidays? Feel comfortable that you are in the majority and not the minority of people around you. Most people, although saying they will be more organized than previous years are most likely still applying the same routine as they do on their New Years resolution, you know, I am starting soon.
Remember to be a little nicer to yourself this year and take your vitamins more regularly and get more rest and exercise than years past Making better food choices should also be an area to focus on as smarter choices will make you stronger and healthier and keep your immune system on guard to deal with your self induced holiday stress.
Take more B Complex daily, preferably an extra 100 mg in a timed released formula. Taking extra Vitamin C, once again timed released complex form for maximum all day protection keeps germs at bay and you up and around and not flat on your back. You might also want to make sure you are actually sleeping at night and resting and not just going through the motions. If you wake up beat up and exhausted every morning like you have not even had any sleep at all look for some natural alternatives to help you do the job more completely.
L-tryptophan and Calcium and Magnesium or multiple mineral preparations taken at bedtime will help to induce a natural and more complete nights sleep. You also can choose from other alternatives like Melatonin, Valerian root, or combination herbal preparations. Whatever you choose, pick the strongest you can handle to get you the most restful and re cooperative nights sleep you can. Just these few small changes will make stressful holiday craziness more deal able, and keep you just a little more focused and sane. The bad gift choices is something you will have to deal with on your own!
