Sacha Strebe

While we all agree this is definitely the most wonderful time of the year, it can also be one of the most stressful—you might want to start eating these foods every day. There's nothing more thrilling than feasting with family and friends and seeing the joy on their faces when they open up your presents. But with all that cooking, hosting, entertaining, and shopping to do (not to mention the extra workload at the office before your holiday break), your anxiety levels can skyrocket.

Thankfully the founders of Tone It Up, Karena Dawn and Katrina Scott, came to our rescue with their top four stress-busting hacks to help you manage the holiday hustle while still keeping mellow. We could all do with a bit of that.

Walk It Off

Sometimes the pressure can become so insurmountable that it feels as though you might self-combust. But don't let it get to that point. Take a step outside and walk it off. "If a situation at home or work is giving you anxiety, remove yourself from the setting and go for a stroll," said Dawn and Scott. "Physically distancing yourself from a stressor will help you mentally distance yourself and allow you to look at the problem with a fresh perspective. Plus, you get extra steps in."
