From the gift-giving, to the party-planning, to the decorating, to the cookie-making, holiday time is both wonderfully joyous AND potentially stress-inducing.

If you want more of the warm ‘n’ fuzzies and less of the anxiety, take this easy first step: BREATHE. 

Seriously, when you feel anxiety creeping up, or irritation boiling over, inhale for 5 counts and exhale for 5 counts. Do this about five times and you’ll feel more grounded.

Take it one step further with a few yoga poses for stress-reduction (it’s crazy what just 30 seconds of bending can do for your headspace!).

Well + Good and Core Power Yoga teamed up to give this adorable post on 5 Yoga Poses for a Stress-free, Happy Holiday Season (complete with 5 cute demonstration GIFs!).

If you stand in tree while decorating your tree, maybe the tangled lights won’t seem like as much of a disaster?

I went to NYU for Film & TV and had the entrepreneur’s spirit since being a tot when I contracted chores out to my older sister for a profit (ha!). I run Hello Lucy Design (a web management and design biz) full time as well as Editorial Direction for LikeABossGirls.com. As a full-of-energy go-getter, my motto is “Why the heck not?”. I'm a mid-western girl who has worked for the BBC in London, Nickelodeon in NYC, and Jazz Aspen Snowmass in Colorado. One of my proudest accomplishments was serving as Co-Director for three consecutive years for the Fusion Film Festival of NYU, celebrating women in film, TV, and new media.
