Two Easy Ways to Combat Holiday Stress


The holidays are “just around the corner!” Let’s face it- that pretty much translates to: The holidays are HERE.  This season is filled with parties, dinners, traveling, hosting out of town guests, and the list goes on!  All these festivities – and the busy schedule that accompanies them- are lot to keep up with, inevitably leading to higher levels of stress. Yes, holiday stress.

If you’re feeling stressed out, you’re not alone. Holiday stress statistics reported by the American Psychological Association show that nearly half of the women in the United States experience heightened stress during the holidays.

Botanical blends can provide some much needed support to manage this hectic time of year and promote  a happy and healthy holiday season.

Here are two MegaFood formulas on my “go to” list for this time of year:

Tension Release

One of its key botanicals inclusions is Sensoril, a clinically studied extract of Ashwagandha, which helps to inhibit fatigue from everyday stress.* Also included are Passion Flower and Lemon Balm; both are traditionally used to soothe occasional nervousness.*


Dream Release

Sleep is crucial to health and wellness, which is why my second “go to” formula is Dream Release. It’s a unique blend of herbs that helps promote a sense of relaxation and restorative sleep.* It also contains magnesium to help release tension.*

These “go to” formulas to soothe tension and promote restful sleep can help bring the holidays back into balance. As for the pressures of holiday shopping? Unfortunately, MegaFood hasn’t created a formula for that! However, remembering to care for yourself will certainly help in all aspects of the holiday season whirlwind.
