3. Take a Soothing Bath

When you’re getting ready for that holiday shindig, try taking a nice, hot bath instead of a shower. To really help you relax, try pouring in a generous helping of epsom salts and 10-15 drops of a soothing essential oil like lavender. Turn down the lights, put on some relaxing music, and soak your woes away.

What about you guys? How have you been coping with holiday stress without taking too much time from your busy schedules?
