Bonnie’s  Holiday Stress Relieving Tips

by Bonnie C. Haufe


  • WRITE To Do list each day so you can set priorities, plan errands & delegate tasks.
  • PLAN what items you need & in what order to get things done so you can minimize rush & worry.
  • FOR a good night’s sleep each night, avoid  caffeine, sugar & alcohol-etc. at least 2 hours before bedtime. Have quiet & still time 1/2 hour before.
  • TO  AVOID morning headaches from salt-laden foods, sugary treats & alcohol, try 2 glasses of water before treat or 2 glasses of water before bedtime.
  • LEAVE for work 10 minutes earlier so you can relax & collect your thoughts before starting your shift.
  • LISTEN to weather report each day on the hour by radio or anytime on mobile phone so you can plan to dress warmly & stay dry!!
  • LEARN to say “NO” to less important activities to leave time for needed studying, work, a good night’s sleep-etc.
  • PREVENT evening arguments for a peaceful sleep..
