Stress is a common trigger of headaches. Help manage your stress this 🎄 holiday season 🎄 with these helpful tips:

2. Give yourself some designated coloring time.

Put away the phone, pop on a classic holiday movie, and give yourself the sweet, sweet satisfaction of coloring very neatly inside the lines. (It's just one of the many ways you can relax.)

4. DIY a little something for somebody. Just a little something.

No need to overwhelm yourself with "a custom scarf for every single relative," but a joyful craft here or there could go a long way.

5. Try out a new recipe for just yourself.

Unleashing a new kitchen concoction upon unsuspecting relatives can be quite the endeavor...but an extra-chocolatey hot chocolate for one? Well, that's worth trying over and over again until you get it right.

7. Have a quick catch-up with an old friend. 👯
