When something harmful or irritating affects a part of our body, there is a biological response to try to remove it. Inflammation can be uncomfortable, but it means that the body is starting to heal itself.

In spite of the current global situation, the spirit of the holidays was alive and well. It might have been different from the previous years because of the mandatory safety and travel protocols, still they were not a hindrance for Filipinos to celebrate the season. 
Yes, the holidays may have brought joy but with it also came with its fair share of stress. The countless shopping and running errands, paired with preparing your holiday spread have all contributed to your stressors. 
But now, they have come to an end. For most of us, the period after the holidays can leave us feeling down. For others, it's tough to return to their ordinary routines and schedules. If you're one of those who are having trouble adjusting, here are some holiday stress management tips to help.
Start an Exercise Routine
It’s common for our fitness routines to wane down during the busy holiday season. If you need to get back on track, there’s no better time to start than now. Exercising helps you blow off some steam and work through any lingering stress after the holidays. As an added benefit, those sweat sessions will help you get better sleep. 
Get off the Sweets!
We are all guilty of overindulging during the holidays. Now that the season is over, it’s time to go back to a healthy eating lifestyle! Look up easy recipes, put your apron on, and cook. If this chore eats up a lot of your time, consider meal planning and preparing your food ahead of time. 
Make Small Adjustments
Now that we’re off to a new start, it’s time to focus on little things that can help you relax. Take some time away from your mobile phone. Disconnecting can provide some much-needed separation from all of life’s demands—socialization, work, errands, etc. 
Small adjustments that won’t make or break your routine can be the little added boost you need to bring joy back to your days. 
Keep Your Healthy Habits
Healthy habits will be one of your best defenses against stress. This means getting enough sleep, eating well, and staying physically active. It will be tough at first, but once you start working on it, you’ll be back in no time! 
Take B-Vitamins as a Booster
A strong nervous system is essential to being able to effectively fight the symptoms of stress. Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6, and B12 are known to maintain a healthy nervous system. Make sure you have enough B-Complex in your body. 
B vitamins play a vital role in maintaining good health and well-being. As the building blocks of a healthy body, B vitamins have a direct impact on your energy levels, brain function, and cell metabolism. 
As we face another year, we’re bound to face new challenges. So make sure that your body and mind are prepared! Make time to practice these tips and, of course, supplement with Pharex B-Complex. Always consult your physician before taking any supplements.
Sit back and rest easy. You got this!
Happy New Year from Pharex B-Complex!
