By Ann Lindemann, Senior Health Writer

Has the rush of seasonal festivities left you feeling frazzled, stressed out and blue? You are not alone; many people’s spirits dive when they set unrealistic holiday expectations that simply can’t be fulfilled. Here’s a few tips to help you happily navigate the season.

How to Kick the Holiday Blues

  1. Price Tag Trauma: Circumvent post-holiday financial meltdowns. In the end, the most memorable gift-giving (and receiving!) has little to do with the price tag. The best gifts come from the sincere desire to make a person happy.
  2. Just Say No: You don’t have to do everything that’s asked of you. Really! It’s OK to opt to skip the umpteenth holiday party and treat yourself to a quiet evening bubble bath and cup of tea. If you can’t squirm out of a commitment, make a brief appearance and then politely flee.
  3. Perfection is Overrated: Accept that your family is a real family, not a TV family, so things will probably be less than perfect. Keep your sense of humor and don’t let imperfection ruin your holiday. We’re only human!
  4. Volunteer: Feeling like you are under scheduled or under planned for the holidays? Volunteer to serve holiday dinner at a homeless shelter. There are countless opportunities for doing good. And no one feels blue when they are doing community service.
  5. Give yourself a break: Create time for yourself to do the things YOU love and need to do for your physical and mental wellness. Aerobic exercise, yoga, massage, spiritual practices and taking walks can all calm you down and give you a better perspective on what is important in your life.
