This time of year brings extra stress into our everyday lives. As your dentist, we unfortunately can’t help you with your in-law’s gifts; however, we can suggest a few easy ways to help reduce your stress level.
1. Exercise – This is usually the first item to get cut off the list during the holiday hustle and bustle. Exercising has unbelievable benefits, including stress relief, boost of self-confidence and energy and melting off those extra holiday calories.
2. Get a nite-guard – Most people take their worries with them to bed at night. To avoid clenching or grinding your teeth, have your dentist customize a nite-guard for you. These devices help eliminate the stress on your jaw muscles, allowing for a pleasant morning, headache-free.
3. Relax – Easier said than done, but be sure to take time for yourself this holiday season.
