A stress free holiday season is possible! You may already be stressing at the thought of the upcoming holiday season. I totally get it. There are ways too many gifts to buy, meals to cook, parties to attend, and dishes to wash.
On top of that, you still have to work, pay bills, try not to gain weight, and lose your mind all at the same time! The holiday season is a very stressful time, to say the least, but with a little bit of preparation, it doesn’t have to be!
To help you with that I’ve gathered 3 of my very best spiritual self care tips for remaining stress free in the middle of all the holiday chaos. Let’s jump right in!
Tips For A Stress Free Holiday Season
Tip #1 for a stress free holiday season: DON’T CONSUME TOO MUCH ALCOHOL
Alcohol quickly lowers your energetic vibration and makes you more susceptible to absorbing other people’s negative energies and bad vibes into your own energetic field. And when this happens it can affect your mood, make you feel sad, drained, or even sick!
It also goes the same for you. When you’re not feeling happy, when you’re angry or sad, your energetic vibe will reflect that and you will affect the vibes of others too. And no one wants to be the source of bad vibes!
The holidays will put you around many people and with that crowd comes many different energetic vibes, feelings, and emotions. Protect yourself by not consuming too much alcohol so you can stay high vibe and stress free!
Tip #2 for a stress free holiday season: USE PROTECTION
Not that kind silly!! What I am referring to here is all natural cleansing and protection tools like sage, palo santo, and crystals.
I always sage myself and my home before and after any of my holiday activities. Sage cleanses your energetic field and removes any negative vibes you may have picked up on.
Crystals and stones also provide protection against negative energies, bad vibes, and harmful frequencies. Carrying on your person can repel these energies keeping you stress free and high vibe this holiday season.
I recommend a black tourmaline crystal for overall, everyday protection. But if you really want to step up your protection game get yourself this 8 piece crystal protection set that also comes with a carrying case and information booklet.
Tip #3 for a stress free holiday season: WALK AWAY FROM NEGATIVE CONVERSATIONS AND/OR LIMITING BELIEF SYSTEMS
This is where politics, religion, and other beliefs that are not your own come in. It’s also where arguments, judging, and gossiping comes in.
I know I’ve been at one too many holiday tables where these types of conversations start and then much to often end in disagreements and arguing. And that’s unfortunate because that is not what the holiday season is all about.
Conversations like these are bound to come up when families unite to celebrate the holidays, but if a conversation doesn’t feel good to you, then you should probably just walk away from it or don’t participate. It really is that simple.
Bonus tip for a stress free holiday season: PRACTICE GRATITUDE.
Gratitude is, after all, what this season is all about right. Practice gratitude by trying your best to stay in a thankful mindset. Practice gratitude for EVERYTHING during this time, even the small things.
Not just because that’s what this season is all about, but also because when you are in constant gratitude mode, there is no room for discontentment which breeds temptation, jealousy, fear, and all those other low vibe stressful feelings that you just don’t need in your life.
Final Thoughts On Stress Free Holiday
The holidays can be a very stressful time or they can be a very joyful, happy time. Your experience is exactly what you create it to be and I definitely hope that you experience the latter.
Remember to take it easy on the alcohol, protect your energy, practice gratitude, and stay away from negative vibes. Do these simple things and you’ll enjoy a stress free and high vibe holiday season!
