CentraState offers tips to help de-stress during the holiday season

FREEHOLD TOWNSHIP— The holiday season can be one of excitement and joy, but for many, it can also mean mayhem and bring on a tremendous amount of stress, anxiety and even depression—all of which compromises your overall health.

It is possible, however, by following these few simple tips, to minimize the stress that accompanies the holidays:

  • Identify your holiday stressors and figure out ways to diffuse them.
  • Manage your time wisely—don’t over-schedule yourself and definitely plan things ahead.
  • Avoid overeating and overdrinking alcoholic beverages.
  • Continue exercising—don’t abandon healthy habits.
  • Set priorities, stick to a realistic budget, and rid yourself of impossible goals.
  • Set aside differences between family, friends, co-workers and acquaintances.
  • Take time out for yourself and do something you enjoy.

To help manage holiday stress, CentraState Medical Center is offering a wellness program for men and women, ages 18 years or older. Sound Healing is on Sunday, December 11, from 1-2 pm. at the Thomas Blanchet Cardiac Diagnostic Center’s Healing Room in CentraState’s Star and Barry Tobias Ambulatory Campus, 901 W. Main Street, Freehold.

Sound Healing benefits your body and soul through the use of music and movement. Vibration energy frequencies and sound waves have been found to harmonize the mind, body and spirit.

The practice can help reduce stress, decrease anxiety, increase energy and enhance the body’s immune response. You’ll experience a changing consciousness on the journey to health and wellness.

Sound Healing costs $15 per person, or $25 for 2 people. Space is limited. For more information about this program and all of the health and wellness programs offered at CentraState, call 732-308.0570.

CentraState Healthcare System is a non-profit community health organization consisting of an acute-care hospital, a health and wellness campus, three senior living communities, a Family Medicine Residency Program, and a charitable foundation. CentraState’s teaching program is sponsored by Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School.
