Shopping, crowds, traffic, parties with endless temptations- the holidays can be stressful! Here are some tips on handling stress during the holiday season! 🌲 // HOW TO MANAGE HOLIDAY STRESS // 1. Plan your day and manage your time: Create “to do” lists and schedule when you will tackle them throughout the day.
2. Don't over-commit: Prioritize your invitations by the most important events for you and your family.
3. Share tasks: Set realistic goals for the amount of projects you can do in one day and ask for help.
4. Prepare for shopping days: Eat a good breakfast and always carry a snack with you. Wear comfortable clothes and good walking shoes.
5. Make a budget: Don't set your expectations too high. The holidays are not about impressing anyone.
6. Self care: Make sure you're getting between 7-8 hours of sleep a night.
7. Be patient and understanding with others: Be courteous and try to remember that everyone is under the unusual stress of the holiday season.
8. Move your body: The best way to beat holiday stress? Workout! Getting at least 30 minutes of activity a day is going to do wonders for your mental and physical health.
9. Last but not least…….Have fun!
There are several benefits to walking barefoot through sand; this is because sand is a proprioceptively enriched environment.
The surface is unstable, so your body is using its internal balance and stabilization mechanisms while you perform this exercise as it helps re-educate and stimulate more neuromuscular activity in the lower extremities.
Additional stress and strain is placed onto the muscles, tendons and joints throughout your feet and ankles as you walk or jog (or keep a baby afloat 👶🏻) in the sand which help strengthen them. Walking through sand also requires 2.1 to 2.7 more energy expenditure versus walking on flat ground. 🏖🏐

My Amazon Alexa Does More Than Just Laugh ( 2/4 )
I turned around and checked the time. It was almost midnight. I needed to take a shower before bed. I sighed and headed for the bathroom.
After a quick shower, I was toweling off and thinking about what I had to do at work the next day when Alexa started to talk again. I couldn’t hear her very well through the bathroom door, but I recognized her voice. It didn’t sound like she was reciting another order. It almost sounded like conversation.
I cracked open the door and listened. The voice stopped. I could see her blue light reflecting off the wall.
“Alexa,” I called. “What are my active orders?”
“You have no active orders, Valerie,” she replied. “Is there something you’d like to get?”
“No,” I said. Her light went off.
I watched TV in bed for a little while, hoping I’d get tired enough to fall asleep. It wasn’t working. I couldn’t stop thinking about the stupid device. I wasn’t going to shut it down, though. I didn’t want to give in to my baseless fear. I’m an adult, damn it.
During my third Frasier rerun, I finally felt myself getting ready to sleep. I turned off the TV and closed my eyes.
“Okay Peter, Sunshades Depot 5’x7’ tarp is on its way. You should have it in a couple days.”
My eyes snapped open.
“Enough of this,” I muttered, and bolted out of bed. When my feet hit the floor, Alexa began to laugh again. It was loud this time, and just as deep as it had been the last time. She sounded like a large man cruelly laughing at an offensive joke.
The blue light was so bright in my eyes as I reached for the plug.
“Okay Peter, Osborne International wire brush is on….”
I tore the plug from the outlet and Alexa went silent. The light went out. I stormed back into my room and slammed the door. I think I slept for about an hour.
The next day, when I got home from work, I ran into my landlady. We’re friendly with one another; she’s only a few years older and we have drinks every so often. I invited her in, telling her I needed a few beers after what I’d dealt with the night before.
“What happened?” Toshi inquired, sitting down at the kitchen table and cracking open the beer I’d given her.
