5 Ways to Use Wellness Coaching to Combat Holiday Stress, Honolulu, Hawaii

The holidays are a joyful, yet stressful time of year. With cold weather and extended time indoors creating the perfect environment for catching the flu, it’s important not to let stress wear down your immune system. IMUA Orthopedics, Sports & Health in Honolulu, HI, is where Oahu residents go for the best in sports medicine and wellness coaching. They’ll take care of all your osteopathic and wellness needs, whether you need to see an osteopathic physician, orthopedic surgeon, or health coach. Here, they offer a few ways to beat stress during the holidays.

How Wellness Coaching Helps You Beat Holiday Stress

1. Stay In Touch With Your Body

When stress sets in and you feel like you need to do a million things at once, the last thing you want to do is take a lunch break. But if you don’t stop and listen to what your body is telling you (maybe you’re having trouble sleeping or you suddenly have neck pain), you run the risk of overeating, skipping sleep, and creating more stress, which is damaging to your nervous system.

2. Identify Your Main Stressors

Which factors are creating the most stress for you? Impressing the in-laws, meeting a deadline at work, or shopping for the kids? Talking to a wellness coach will help you figure out what’s bothering you so you can figure out how to handle it.

3. Create A Plan

4. Take Care Of Yourself

Once you’ve realized you do have everything under control, it’s important to make sure you’re eating regularly and being mindful of nutrition, drinking lots of water, getting plenty of sleep, and taking deep breaths. You’ll need the energy to take on the big event.

5. Have Fun

On the big day, remember to enjoy yourself. You’ve put a lot of work into making it perfect, and no one deserves to enjoy it more than you!
