While the holidays can be a wonderful time of year, with holiday shopping, cooking and parties, this time of year can also make stress levels rise. Fortunately, Tapestry’s focus on wellness and providing our residents with a variety of wellness-centred programs can help keep stress at bay! If you are struggling to remember the magic the holiday season brings, there are several habits you can adopt to help you improve your overall wellness.
Take Care of Your Body
Exercise is one of the most effective stress relievers. It releases mood-boosting endorphins, promotes better sleep and can even help alleviate health issues caused by stress. Tapestry’s three communities offer weekly fitness classes, specialized gym equipment, and even walking clubs that help our residents weather stressful periods and stay fit and well.
Socialize with Friends
This holiday season, take time to connect with friends and family in ways that are meaningful to you. Explore the many wondrous events and activities in your community. Whether you would like to attend a choir performance, an ugly Christmas sweater party or a cookie exchange, there are so many ways to feel connected this holiday season. Tapestry has many holiday events and activities planned in December. Explore our offerings and connect with us!
Eating right and making healthier snack and food choices during the holidays can help keep you healthier and even keep stress at bay, especially if you avoid overindulging in sugar, caffeine and alcoholic beverages. At Tapestry, we know eating well is important to feeling well. In all of our dining venues, we offer healthy and nutritious choices that are also delicious! Learn more about our dining services and how you can eat well….to be well.
Don’t be Shy About Asking for A Hand
With so much going on during this holiday season it can be hard to keep up with regular (and boring!) household chores. Don’t be shy for asking for help. Tapestry residents enjoy weekly housekeeping services so their time is spent on events and activities that inspire and delight not only at the holiday season but all year long.
We wish you a happy, healthy and stress-free holiday season!
