Anti-stress: 6 tips for slowing down

A feeling only stays with us for a maximum of three minutes unless we hold on to it. If a situation makes you sad, angry, disappointed or afraid, allow yourself to feel the feeling. After three to five minutes, look at the situation again and ask yourself, "Can I change it right now?" If no: then leave it at that. If yes, then change the situation now. Feel free to ask yourself what phrase in your head often wakes you up in the morning? Is it deep gratitude, or do you feel immediately driven, in the do-er, and going through the to-do list of the day...? We would like to give you 6 anti-stress tips on how you can look forward to Christmas in a relaxed manner and, above all, find time for yourself:

  1. Rest, walk in the woods or by the lake take a walk and try just being. Without any expectations that everything always has to go perfectly.
  2. Start thinking about who you want to give something to for Christmas this year in late October or early November. Then create a Shopping list.
