N ot a m e m b e r ? J o i n at a s so c iate d h a i rp rofe s sio n a ls .c o m 47 the spark recently found myself lying on the bed in the middle of an anxiety attack. Once again, I allowed stress to get the best of me. As I laid there with the blood pressure cup on my arm, I thought to myself, "I really need to write an article about conquering stress during the holidays." Crazy, right? But it's incidents like this one that make you realize it's time to slow down and smell the roses or, in this case, the holly. Questions like, "Have you finished your holiday shopping? How many clients have requested appointments? Will you be able to fit them all in? Did you order enough product to keep up? When are you going to decorate? Have you found that perfect gift for your special someone? What about the turkey?" run through my mind as I get ready each year for the holidays. Sometimes, it's like my thoughts are moving at warp speed as the various tasks pop in and out of my head. Yet, the holidays are the most wonderful time of the year, right? At least that's how the song goes. The year-end holidays are certainly a prosperous time if you work in the beauty industry; however, they also come with a lot of added responsibilities. The whirlwind of balancing a heavy client load with all the activities that begin at Halloween and run through the end of the year can be nonstop. This extra seasonal pressure can easily cause stress if we're not careful. Stress Less and Be Blessed With planning and some minor tweaking, you can achieve balance and harmony during the holiday season by Gina Rivera
