Take a little time out this Christmas

With only 20 days till Christmas eve, the big day is well and truly in sight.

But the season to be jolly, in reality, can be a particularly stressful time of year.

Frankly if you haven’t had your Brussel sprouts cooking on a low light since April , don’t bother its too late.

However ,these 10 commandments to reduce stress (courtesy of could definitely apply particularly to this, or anytime of year,

  1. Thou shalt not be perfect or even try

  2. Thou shalt not try to be all things to all people

  3. Thou shalt leave undone things that ought to be done (see Brussel sprouts )

  4. Thou shalt not spread thyself too thin

  5. Thou shalt learn to say “NO”

  6. Thou shalt make time for thyself

  7. Thou shalt learn to switch off and do nothing regularly

  8. Thou shalt be boring, untidy and unattractive at times

  9. Thou shalt not feel guilty

  10. Thou shalt not be thine own enemy

An addendum to that would be my 11th commandment - book yourself or someone you know a massage.

A massage will benefit both your mind and your body.

The relaxing effect of a massage can :

  • Release tension in your muscles

  • Improve blood circulation

  • Relieve overall fatigue, soreness and stiffness

  • Relieve tension headaches

  • Boost your immune system

  • Leave you feeling more energised

  • Reduce the effects of stress

  • Improve your sleep pattern

  • Reduce the effects of anxiety and depression

  • Restore a sense of balance and well-being

So remember ,"thou shalt make time for yourself' , feel festive not frantic and enjoy.
