5 Tips To Make Your Holiday Season As Stress Free As Can Be

The holiday season brings a great deal of joy and happiness along with it.  There's something extra special about this time of year, but it doesn't come without stress. 

Many people find a great deal of added stress is seemingly dumped on our plates, and it can be hard to catch our breath.  The pressure of finding gifts, rushing around in the hustle and bustle to visit everyone, having people visit you, getting to see relatives you miss and even having to deal with those that aren't always a joy to be around.

Lifestyle factors, i.e. the things you do everyday over the long-term – can add up to increase the number of quality years in your lifespan.

This has shown to be true in many parts of the world!

Look no further than the people of ‘Blue Zones’ for proof of how powerful everyday habits are when it comes to staying healthy for the long haul.
