With less than two weeks until Christmas, you may be feeling some holiday stress. If you don't want to run the risk of ruining your holidays, try these tips.

  • Take calm-down breaks. Shortly after you wake up, close your eyes, take several deep breaths and just relax.
  • Get moving. Exercise can help alleviate tension.
  • Go for real foods. Try to avoid some of the treats that seem to be everywhere this time of year.
  • If you must indulge, take smaller portions of “comfort” foods and drinks.
  • Prepare “Nice To Do For Me" and “Need to Do For You” lists.
  • Be generous. If you can't afford to give financially, try to find some time to help someone else.
