stress less for holidays

The holidays are fast approaching and that means pretty soon holiday stress will be upon us as well. If you have already started stressing over the holidays, don't worry because I am here to help!

Being prepared for the holidays is one of the most important ways to stress less and giving back during the holidays is a simple way to relieve stress.

Helping others, giving back and spreading cheer is one way you can relieve stress during the holidays.

It makes you feel good when you know you’ve cheered someone up or helped someone else. Being in the presence of other people and showing them your appreciation, even in small ways, can help you get more perspective during the holiday craze, too.

Giving Back During the Holiday Season

One of our favorite ways to give back during the holiday season is to spread holiday cheer with baked goods.


We like to bake and decorate sugar cookies for the holidays because they allow our creativity to flourish. There are so many shapes, sizes, colors and styles to come up with and it makes holiday baking all the more fun.


Whenever my sister is whipping up her special batch of sugar cookies, we make sure to have extras to pass out to our local officers, firemen, teachers and even our favorite coffee baristas! It's such a simple way to give back and it easily brightens up someone's day.

Another way to stress less is to be prepared during the holiday season. Whether you are hosting an event for your business, a huge dinner for your family, or even a party for your friends, the last thing you want to worry about is running out of your supply of beverage options.

You can keep your family’s healthy hydration on track during the holiday season with a constant supply of beverage options you and your family love with ReadyRefresh℠ by Nestlé®.
