If you find yourself feeling particularly anxious this holiday season, it’s a telltale sign that you could use some grounding in your life.

3. Create a Calming Mantra for Yourself
Between shopping for gifts, prepping for holiday parties and endless “to-do’s,” it’s easy to get stressed out — if you allow it.
Nip holiday stress in the bud by creating a calming mantra for yourself, a word of phrase you can recite during stressful times to bring you back to a state of calm. It can be as simple as, “Just breathe.” Once you come up with your mantra, write it down as a daily reminder to find your zen.
4. Prioritize Your “Me Time”
While the holiday season is about giving, don’t forget to also give back to yourself this season. Prioritize your “me time” by scheduling in regular self-care — be it soaking in a candlelit bubble bath, writing in a journal or taking yourself out to dinner (to give yourself a much deserved break in the kitchen).
Do more of what feels good to you this holiday season. Here are some tips to practice self-care during stressful times.
5. Dedicate a Zen Space in Your Home
If your home and mind is cluttered, it’s going to be challenging to feel a sense of peace this season. A great way to bring more peace and calm into your life is by dedicating a space in your home to retreat — your very own “zen space.” It could be a yoga/reading room or even a cozy corner embellished with meditation pillows, candles and twinkly lights. Spend time in your zen space whenever you need to recharge.
