As we all know, being stressed out can lead to overeating or binging, short tempers, neglecting exercise, arguments with your loved ones and ignoring your needs.
To help you out, I'm presenting a life-changing teleseminar, Relieve Holiday Stress on Wed., Dec. 2 at 8 pm EST, with Debra Berndt, an acclaimed master of creative visualization and hypnosis author of the upcoming book, Let Love In: Open Your Heart and Mind to Attract Your Ideal Partner.
- Lose or maintain weight;
- Be happier throughout the holiday season and beyond;
- Relax around your family and friends;
- Curb your sugar cravings;
- Find love or get along better with your partner;

- Be calm when you’re short on funds;
- Attract money;
- Exude confidence; and
- Become the master of your life by dissolving your stresses
In addition to presenting this Release Holiday Stress teleseminar, we're also offering 3 Tips to Calm You Down now:
1. Transform your thoughts. While you may not be able to alter your circumstances, you can change the way you think about them. For instance, when you start to get upset about about your annoying Aunt Jean, who is prying into your love life, or your cousin Cindy, who keeps urging you to try her apple pie and other sugary "goodies," take a deep breath and interrupt your negative thoughts. Then, see these circumstances with rose-colored glasses. Your Aunt Jean and cousin Cindy are just showing that they love you. Tap into how they feel for you. Be thankful that they're so concerned, even if the way that they show it is misguided. Now, see your situation calmly, with gratitude instead.
2. Take calm-down breaks. Soon after you awake, close your eyes, take several deep breaths and meditate or just relax. Imagine yourself in a beautiful place, think of a happy memory or visualize yourself succeeding at a cherished goal. Quieting down your mind before you begin your day can help it get off to a great start and things will flow for you. In addition, throughout the day, whenever you feel overwhelmed, take quick calm-down breaks of 1 to 5 minutes to bring you additional peace of mind.
3. Make 2 lists — one that's "Nice To Do For Me" and another that's "Need to Do For Others." Putting down your to-do lists on paper can help to see how manageable they are. As you go down the list, tackle one item from each list. So in addition to buying gifts for your mom or significant other, you will make sure to go to the gym. By completing both lists at once, you won't feel deprived, because you're also thinking of yourself. Better yet, as Cheryl Richardson suggests in her fabulous book,Take Time for Your Life: A 7-Step Program for Creating the Life You Want, prepare an "Absolute Yes" list, which will reflect priorities that inspire you to use your gift of time well. "When you practice extreme self-care and put yourself first, you are then fully available to others without resentment or anger." she aptly points out.

By the way, Debra and I are holding this Relieve Holiday Stress program at this time of year, because research shows that's when you most need help to combat stress.
In fact, the American Psychological Association (APA) found that
nearly half of all women in the United States experience heightened
stress during the holidays, which puts their health at risk.
During this time, 41 percent of
women use food and 28 percent use alcohol, according to a 2006 study.
For instance, people become burdened by:
- That annoying, but well-meaning parent, sibling, cousin or distant relative;
- Worries about weight and how you look;
- Marital strife or loneliness, especially if you don't t have a significant other;
- Money woes;
- Health problems;
- Insecurities about giving the right gifts (and wondering if you have the money to buy them);
- The loss of your loved ones (either recently or in previous years);
- The depressing economy; and
- Credit card debt.
Devouring several pieces of pecan pie, spending more money than you should on holiday presents or arguing with your loved ones aren't the answers to heal your holiday stress.
