LACERS Active Members December Update

Happy Holidays and a joyful new year

‘TIS THE SEASON TO REDUCE STRESS

One effective way to reduce stress this holiday season is by displaying kindness. Kindness has been shown to increase self-esteem, empathy and improve mood. If your holiday season feels stressful, try a random act of kindness such as leaving a kind note for a neighbor or a snack for your mail person. Other ideas include calling a family member or making concrete plans with someone you haven’t seen in a while.

It doesn’t have to be something big and extravagant. Kindness can be contagious and help reduce stress levels for yourself and everyone around you. Happy Holidays!
