Avoid Christmas stress by staying hydrated

One of the ways that survivors can avoid holiday stress (or some of it) is by staying hydrated. That's the word from About.com anyway. Staying hydrated can help survivors avoid some of the holiday stress. Dehydration can make it hard to think and difficult to concentrate. This leads to added stress when it's the least needed.

Sipping on a bottle of water can stave off dehydration. The article suggests carrying a bottle of water with you to sip on during the day. Herbal teas can also help in the fight to avoid Christmas stress. In addition to avoiding stress staying hydrated can prevent lightheadedness, dry mouth, fatigue and other symptoms.

Avoiding deyhydration isn't just a way to beat stress. It's a simple thing that we survivors can do to improve our overall health. The step is easy and free. Taking care of ourselves doesn't get any better than that.
