5 Tips to Beat Holiday Stress and Pain
The holidays are fast approaching. That means shopping, cooking, decorating, traveling, and making time for family. As exciting as this time of year is, all of the increased activity and added holiday stress can take a physical toll on your body.
Joint, hand, and back pain are all common this time of year. Whether your shoulder hurts from preparing for a cookie party, or you hurt your back hanging Christmas lights, we know when January rolls in you’ll be feeling a little more pain than usual.
To add to the problem, back pain often gets worse during the winter, and experts say holiday stress is the major culprit. Running around in traffic, trying to meet work deadlines to have time with the family, traveling long hours in the car or on a plane, and carrying heavy packages are all hard on your back. With so much to do, you can easily get run down this time of year.
If this sounds like you every year, pain may be interfering with your holiday plans and happiness.
Here are some tips to ease pain and help with holiday stress this season:
- Travel Smart:
Don’t pack everything in one, big bag. Even though it may cost more, packing two smaller bags is safer and easier on you than one large suitcase. Choose a lightweight bag, and get help lifting your carry-ons overhead. Traveling is hard enough on your body; don’t make it worse with bulky baggage.
- Stay Healthy
Indulge in those special holiday treats, of course, but remember to still eat veggies and fruits, and drink plenty of water. Don’t stress about weight gain at the big family gathering or work holiday party, live a little! On other days, make sure that you eat in moderation and get at least a half hour of cardio, even if that means nothing more than taking a walk. What a perfect excuse to stroll and window shop or take a look at your neighbors Christmas lights!
- Relax and Treat the Pain

- Support your back:
If you’re sitting for an extended period of time, roll up a jacket or towel and place behind your lower back for lumbar support and neck for relief.
