Tips to Relax over Hanukkah
The Hanukkah season has many nights of cheer and celebration. However, it can lead to stress. But don’t let the holiday schedule take control of your life. You are capable of handling the stressors that come with the holidays.
Here we’ve given some of our favorite tips to relax and prepare for the eight-night celebration of Hanukkah.
Avoid Your Phone First Thing in the Morning
Looking at a bright screen when you wake up can immediately set the day’s tone with stress, disappointment, or other jolting feelings. Avoiding looking at a phone or tablet when you wake up will slowly wake up the brain and take time for yourself to handle the rest of your day.
Take this tip one step further and replace looking at a screen in the morning with journaling or reading. Try to take the morning to make mental clarity for yourself and the upcoming events that are just around the corner.
Set Up an Out-of-the-Office Message
With eight days of celebration, you might be working some of those days. A way to stay present during the special moments would be to enable night mode on your phone or tablet and set up out-of-the-office messages for email. Even if you decide to glance at your emails, your coworkers will know that you cannot answer right away.
The Hanukkah season can require many moving plans, with constant changes and catering to individuals. This change is inevitable, and accepting that you can be flexible can naturally allow you to de-stress. Enjoy the ride!
Be Mindful of Moments
Hanukkah only comes around once a year, so make it count! The special moments will create memories for a lifetime, as cliche as it may sound. Pay attention to the abundance of love, giving, and warmth. Allow yourself to be proud of your accomplishments so far during the year! Taking advantage of this time and energy can translate into other moments in your life.
Take away the unwanted stress of rushed planning, and set goals for yourself to accomplish what needs to be done (for work and personal life) before going into holiday planning. Take a moment to write down your goals in a calendar.

Our Favorite Hanukkah Cocktails
Eight nights huh? Try these cocktails to relax and enjoy the evening.
Know that adding CBD to cocktails is safe to consume in moderation. We recommend adding 10 milligrams in your cocktail to start, mixing in an additional 10-15 milligrams at a time after if needed. Typically, the more alcohol in the drink, the less you’ll feel the CBD effects.
