Don't stress over the hectic holidays

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Whether it's long holiday shopping lines or just putting up decorations, the holidays can be stressful.

Experts say there are a few things you can do to survive the holidays unscathed.

  • Be aware of what pushes your buttons. Recognize how it will make you feel and try to keep control of your emotions. 
  • Lower your expectations for the big day. Rarely does everything go as planned and it's ok if it's not perfect.
  • Realize you can only control yourself, what you say and how you think. You can't be responsible for others' bad behavior.
