Everything Seniors and Caregivers in Edmonton, AB Need to Know About Avoiding Holiday Stress

Senior In-Home Care | Find yourself stressing out over all the things to plan and execute during the holidays. You are among millions of aging adults around the world who find the holiday season to be extremely stressful. This should be a time of excitement, joy, family, friends, and happiness, not stress. In-home care is available to help families, and their aging loved ones, cope with the anxiety and overwhelming activities that accommodate the holiday schedule.

Here are a few caregiver and senior in-home care tips to avoid a stressful holiday season:

Maintain a Regular Regimen: If you exercise regularly, attend a fitness class, or participate in other physical activities, continue to do so during the holidays. It can be stressful dwelling on those things that you usually do but aren’t doing because it’s the holiday season. These activities help to eliminate stress and should be incorporated into daily living during the holidays. In-home care providers can remind aging adults to stay consistent with physical activity.

A No-Stress Season: Think of all the things you’re most grateful for and how they bring joy to your life. Don’t spend time dwelling on what you don’t have or can’t buy this holiday season. Family, food, laughs and good times will bring immeasurable joy and you should spend time focusing on these things.

Alcohol Limitations: While it is common for alcohol to be served at almost every holiday festivity, it is necessary to limit the amount being consumed. Drinking too much alcohol can decrease your inhibitions and lead to aggressive or combative behaviour. When hosting holiday events, provide minimal amounts of alcohol to friends and family to create a less hostile and more pleasant environment for those in attendance.

Balance the Budget: Spending more than you have budgeted is easy to do during the holiday season. Purchase gifts you can afford, and know that it’s okay to say no to certain gifts that aren’t within your price range. Before the holidays, review your budget and decide to stick to it. The best way to be truly happy during the holidays is to not spend it wondering how you’ll survive financially once the season has ended.

Relax and Enjoy You: Yes! You need time for yourself during the holidays also. The holiday season can become so consumed with things to do that you forget to make time for yourself. Just a few minutes out of the day doing something that you enjoy can make a difference in your stress levels. Get a massage or take a long bath just to experience some quiet time.

Family and aging adults benefit from professional in-home care during the holidays. Stress management is essential in everyday life and increases during the holidays. Make every effort to control it to make the season more enjoyable.
