Stress is a killer – especially over Christmas – de-stress now to reduce your risk
Four quick and easy ‘Hacks’ to reduce your stress and get you ready for the Silly Season…
The University of Melbourne Medical Research team recently conducted an analysis of heart attack risk in Australia. And out of the nearly 45,000 people who die from heart attacks in Australia each year (that’s one person every 12 minutes!) nearly 3,000 die over the Christmas holidays. That’s a massive spike in deaths.
While there are a number of factors involved, stress has been identified as a key one. Increased worry over finances, stress involved in figuring out and buying presents (and especially car parking!) as well as added emotional issues involving loved ones are some of the issues that raise our stress levels over the Silly Season.
But, by preparing for the holidays now, we can reduce our stress levels and stand a much better chance of making it through the Christmas holidays unscathed.
And to help you out, here are some of our favourite De-Stress Hacks for the Holidays…
I can almost see your eyes rolling as you read this – but – many people just don’t prepare in advance for Christmas. Make a list in July of the presents you want to buy and get them over the next few months. This reduces your financial and mental stress over Christmas presents (and saves your sanity trying to find that elusive car park at your favourite shopping centre!).
I’m not sure if you’re like me, but when I do a Christmas spread – I really do a Christmas spread! I seem to bake and cook and prepare mountains of food, always worried that there won’t be enough. I always spend too much, waste too much time preparing and cooking, and then we end up eating ‘Christmas’ for weeks afterwards – each day promising myself I won’t make the same mistake next year… So, my Hack Number Two is to work out a simple but effective menu and refine, refine, refine it until it is ‘bang-on’ and just right. Don’t buy too much and don’t go for food that’s really expensive. I find that the vast majority of people really just enjoy simple food over Christmas because we all over-indulge. So keep it simple – and reduce your stress and time in the kitchen.
HACK #3: Go Light.
Commit yourself now to going light – on both food and drink. You can still enjoy yourself, but don’t always choose the really heavy, creamy food and don’t eat too much. One key heart attack element over Christmas is over-indulgence in food. And make sure you keep an eye on your alcohol intake – there’s an awful lot of stress involved when you get pulled over by the police and you thought you only had two red wines, but it turned out to be six!
HACK #4: De-Stress Now To Prepare for Chrissy.
Does Christmas sometimes fill you with the same sort of dread that running a marathon would? Do you sometimes feel like a footy player who has to ‘back-up’ every few days for yet another match? Well, did you know that you can get yourself ready now for the stress to come over Christmas by ‘de-stressing’ beforehand?
At BGH, we care a lot about our patients – and we want you to get through Christmas healthy, well and with the minimum of stress.
