Pureman’s 5 Tips to Help You Stay Sane Over the Holidays

Posted by on

All of us have heard Andy Williams tell us “it’s the most wonderful time of the year”, again and again. That tune, those words, are ingrained in our brains as December rolls around each year. So it must be true, right? The holidays are special and wonderful and make us so very happy, right!? RIGHT!?!? Ok. Time to pause. Let’s be honest with ourselves. Spending time with family and friends during the holidays does make for wonderful memories and is a special time of year. But that doesn’t mean it can’t also be stressful, frustrating and exhausting. Trying to find the perfect gifts while throngs of other people are doing the same, keeping every side of the family happy, planning dinners, attending parties - it can all be too much at times. Feeling like you’re going to lose it isn’t abnormal at this time of year. But there are ways to help keep the holidays a happier and more enjoyable time and they are very easy to follow! Here are Pureman’s 5 tips to help you stay sane over the holidays.

Breathe Slowly

It’s easy to get caught up in the frustration of waiting in long queues, re-organizing your week to accommodate yet another Christmas party and making everyone happy during the holidays. Often, we’re so busy doing things for others, we forget to take care of ourselves. Stopping for even 5 minutes and taking slow, deep breaths can help you clear your head, regain a sense of calm and discover what else you may need to do for yourself (from the list below!) to help you stay sane.

Be Present

Looking to what is coming down the track can be crazy making this time of year. Get organized, but don’t forget to pause and take in the present moment. It can help ground you and remind you of what you’re grateful for. Be present. Be grateful.

Ask for Help

You are not alone. You can be pretty certain that nearly everyone around you is in a similar boat. Team up. Find a buddy. Help each other out with a vent, a baby swap so you can run errands and allow them to, invite a mate over to help decorate for the party while you have a beer and listen to music. It’ll make the stress more bearable.


A solid laugh session, I mean tears pricking your eyes and the guffaw rolling up from the gut, can work miracles. Find that mate that makes you feel like a kid again or tune in to your favourite comedian. Try it. You’ll be happy you did.

Get Your Wiggle On

Go for a run, do some yoga, play some footy, dance in the streets. Studies show that exercise is a great stress buster. It pumps up your endorphins, which are your brain’s feel good neurotransmitters. So get moving!
